Allysa Grace's music is an intriguing blend of jazz, soul and prog-rock, with songs that often descend into what feel like free-form jams. Grace's stage presence is strong, and she addresses the crowd with an affable ease that belies the complexity of her music... Grace's keyboard is the centerpiece instrument, with bassist Ben Bradshaw often taking lead excursions on his five-string bass.
Allysa Grace has had the opportunity to be a part of many amazing musical projects thanks to her upbringing in Austin, Texas. The music community raised her through the orchestras as a violist; in RnB groups as a vocalist; and with her favorite vocalists as a keyboardist. These different musical experiences have inspired her to front her own group.
Her band is reminiscent of your favorite soul artists, but her experience draws you to her worldly roots. This beautiful combination of neo soul, jazz, and raw talent will blow you away.
She plays shows with her band and other projects in central Texas. Allysa also participates/organizes in community groups in Austin.
She currently teaches piano and violin at the wonderful Sense and Color School of Music, when she isn't on tour with chicano rock group Tito and Tarantula.
