Grace Knight is one of the most enduring talents in Australian music. With Aria nominations and chart topping recordings in each of the past three decades, her career spans over thirty five years.
Acclaimed for her live performances, Grace is one of the finest interpreters of popular music in Australia today. Knight’s spellbinding performances touch the soul and lift the heart. Her magical presence connects with audiences of all ages like few others can.
She blew audiences away throughout the eighties as lead singer of internationally successful band Eurogliders. She captivated fans with her “Manic Ballerina” stage persona and Eurogliders took the charts by storm.
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. 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
Her album Willow was nominated for an ARIA award in 2008 and she has just released her seventh solo album, Keep Cool Fool.
Never one to slow down and rest on her laurels, Grace released her critically acclaimed autobiography, Pink Suit for a Blue Day in 2010. Written with wit and warmth, she combines hilarious stories from her childhood with frank revelations of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. Grace felt obliged to write her story to show solidarity with the countless other victims of childhood abuse.
As well as her gruelling schedule of live work and recording Grace recently made a guest appearance in the long running TV show, Neighbours. She is also an Ambassador for Heal For Life Foundation, an organisation that empowers people to heal from childhood trauma and abuse and is a patron to the Choir Of Hope And Inspiration (formerly Choir Of Hard Knocks) and last year re-recorded her smash hit, Heaven (Must Be There), with the choir.
