London rocker Grace Solero and her band have recently released their 'Metamorphosis' album, unleashing 9 tracks of raw, grungy, dreamy and atmospheric rock.
This long-player record was mixed by Chris Brown (Radiohead, Muse, Ride, INXS, Gary Moore) and mastered by Andy 'Hippy' Baldwin (The Who, Oasis, Blur, UB40, Stormzy) at London's Metropolis Studio. Recorded and engineered by Jon Clayton (The Monochrome Set, Vic Godard And Subway Sect) at One Cat Studio in London.
Grace Solero explains: "The album's title track 'Metamorphosis' was initially a guitar riff played by our drummer and multi-instrumentalist Dave. The whole band joined in and I added melody and lyrics. The verses are more introspective with the choruses turning into anthem-like explosive energy. It's about being bold in order to move forward," says
Grace Solero's performances are highly dynamic and energetic, both sonically and visually. They've performed everywhere from intimate clubs to large stages in Europe, USA and Canada, supporting the likes of Motorhead's Phil Campbell, Alan Merrill (famed songwriter of the Joan Jett hit ‘I Love Rock ’n’ Roll’) , Bernie Torme and Arthur Brown. Previous albums ‘New Moon’ (2009), ‘Hundred Years Apart’ (2013) and 'Awake’ (2018), have received BBC Radio 6, XFM and BBC London support and has been featured in Classic Rock, Guitar Techniques, Powerplay Magazine, Sonic Shocks and Sonic Cathedral Webzine.
Currently collaborating on The Twilight Zone, a new project with Dan Beaulaurier and legendary pedal steel player BJ Cole (Elton John, Cat Stevens, Bjork, R.E.M), she also co-writes and performs with The Vibrators’ Knox and Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania) and has performed alongside Slade’s Noddy Holder.
