Whether staring at a blank page in her journal, or quietly piecing together a melody at her ever-so-slightly out of tune piano, Grace Hrabi is an old soul who finds pure joy in the creative process. Her sweet and emotional stories have been shaped by the people who have come into her life and what is left behind when they go. Her rich & dulcet voice will sing a song that your ears will hear and your heart will understand.
Grace Hrabi's original music, although heavily influenced by her jazz background and formal training, is not defined by it. Instead, she approaches each new composition with an open mind (and ears) and lets it come to life naturally. The result is compositions that fuse the most beautiful and exhilarating aspects of jazz, folk, blues and pop. With a performance style inspired by both the past and present (Carmen McRae, Ella Fitzgerald, Jill Barber, Norah Jones) Grace Hrabi is sure to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
Since graduating in 2008 from the Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba with a BA in Jazz Vocal Performance she has been a regular face on the music scene in Winnipeg.
Grace's debut album "Afraid of Heights" was released June 2014 and is available online.
