A new exciting act on the Irish music scene, Grace Wilde are a North Co. Dublin based band, showcasing the music of singer songwriter Audrey Fay and guitarist Enda Duffy. Although elements of jazz, blues, soul, folk and rock can be detected, the songs are highly original and the voice is stunning.
Grace Wilde perform both as an acoustic trio (two guitars and a cello) and/or as a five piece electric band. Their music is a message of power and freedom!
The whole band recently recorded four tracks of their first studio album at Grouse Lodge. These were released recently as an EP Bring Me To My Knees with the title track as a download single and video. Grace Wilde also have a live concert album Let Me In featuring the acoustic trio with Vyvienne Long on cello. Both this album and the studio EP were engineered and produced by the renowned Tony Platt, who has worked with such greats as Bob Marley, ACDC, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy and The Boomtown Rats.
Recent times have been exciting for Grace Wilde with several successful gigs at Whelan’s and other leading venues and arts centres. Back home the band have been making media inroads with a gig at Whelan’s as The Ticket ‘Gig Of The Week’ in The Irish Times, airplay on RTE Radio One’s Late Date and Roots Freeway and live appearances on BBC Radio Ulster’s Gerry Kelly Show, Newstalk’s Green Room and various local stations.
The band have just returned from Germany and are now in rehearsals planning lots of live shows for 2016.. Watch this space
