Grace Knight has wowed crowds for over 40 years since working her passage to Australia as a singer on a cruise liner in 1977. In her current show, Grace journeys across those 40 years, drawing on her repertoire of over 200 recorded songs.
Audiences love the mix of material from her solo career, along with delicate interpretations of Eurogliders’ biggest hits. Still a creative powerhouse, she released her solo albums, ‘Grace’, in 2018 and ‘Fragile’ in 2016. ‘Grace’ sensitively reworks some Eurogliders’ classics, a few jazz standards and a handful of new songs, and Grace is at the absolute peak of her vocal powers.
Grace Knight is one of the most enduring talents in Australian music, with ARIA awards and nominations, and chart-topping recordings in each of the past three decades. Acclaimed for her live performances, Grace is one of the finest interpreters of popular music in Australia today. Grace blew audiences away throughout the eighties as lead singer of internationally successful band Eurogliders, captivating fans with her “Manic Ballerina” stage persona. Eurogliders performed to a TV audience of 65 million people on the MTV New Year’s special in 1984 and racked up multiple Platinum and Gold, albums and singles.
As a solo artist she transformed herself from Pop Princess to Queen of Cool and lit up the screen in ABC TV’s award-winning mini-series, ‘Come in Spinner’. The soundtrack album to ‘Come in Spinner’ went on to become the highest selling Australian jazz album of all time. A string of successful solo albums followed.
During her jazz career, Grace has done countless live shows including performances for five Australian Prime Ministers, President Clinton of the United States, Princess Diana, and the Thai Royal Family.
In 2013 Grace Knight & Bernie Lynch reformed Eurogliders and have been touring since then. In 2015 they released their 6th studio album titled, “Don’t Eat the Daisies”, which featured stripped back performances of many of their hits in addition to a number of new songs. These days she happily splits her time between touring with Eurogliders, playing huge outdoor shows and festivals, and performing her own shows in smaller, intimate venues where the audience is ‘up close and personal’.
