Billy Stewart Using powerful pipes, edgy and adroit ability to swing sweet jazz, drop dulcet blues and roll out R&B that will steal your breath, your heart or both, Ms. McLean’s vocals provide a cornerstone of rhythmic phrasing upon which percussion, bass lines and pianos or keyboards move the tunes without dominating the soundscape. The first 4 songs deliver a wonderful consonance of instrument and voice, meandering through all the above mentioned genres. The final song is more organic and vaporous, not a cappella but it could be, however the soft instrumental and vocal backing add enough to make the song swing a bit more.
This EP is proof that Billboard ain’t got it because great music and exceptional artists, like these, won’t be held by the rules of conventional popularity, may the Muses be pleased and praised.
~My Friend’s Roommate is downright brilliant with fantastic wordplay and vocal acrobatics over sturdy bass, simple percussion and a catchy tune carried by understated keyboard. Favorite track: My Friend's Roommate.

Called “electrifying” by The Huffington Post, Grace McLean has a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, and Fiona Apple's irreverence. Manhattan User's Guide writes "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart." ... more
