Grace Solero (UK) - Metamorphosis - Reviewed By rocknforce ! Check it out here at this link: https://rocknforce.com/grace-solero-lessence-du-rock/
Since her first album in 2009 ("New Moon"), London singer and guitarist GRACE SOLERO continues her journey, which has allowed her and her band to tour throughout Europe, the United States and Canada alongside big names. And it is with a very good fourth opus that the quartet makes its return with pieces that show as many varieties as stunning sounds.
Very Rock, sometimes Hard 70's and often psychedelic, "Metamorphosis" is a record that invites daydreaming while delivering muscular riffs and an aerial rhythm. Surrounded by Welsh drummer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Guy, Swedish bassist Bjørn Zetterlund and American guitarist and composer Dan Beaulaurier, GRACE SOLERO has a solid experience.
If "Metamorphosis" is arranged and produced by the band itself, we owe the mix to Chris Brown (Radiohead, Gary Moore, ...) and the master to Andy Baldwin (The Who, ...), which gives it a round and raw texture very authentic. GRACE SOLERO continues the titles with talent, even if vocally, we think irremediably of Alanis Morissette ("Orange Sky", "Awake", "Lucid Dream"). A great success. - rocknforce

This long-player record was was mixed by Chris Brown (Radiohead, Muse, Ride, INXS, Gary Moore, The Waterboys) and mastered by Andy 'Hippy' Baldwin (The Who, Interpol, 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, these songs were arranged and produced by the band members themselves.
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
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.
While the lead track is out now, the full ‘Metamorphosis’ album is out on July 15. Her release show at The Dublin Castle in Camden, London happens on July 13 with tickets available at https://bit.ly/3aa5RAH
