With one member from Eastern Canada, one from Western Canada, and one from somewhere in the middle, Dirty Grace covers a lot of ground, but not just geographically.
The trio of songwriters produce a playful mix of music ranging from the provocatively cheeky to the intimately introspective, all driven by a curiosity in music’s ability to expose, shake-down, tickle and heal the human spirit.
Blending elements of folk, hip hop, rock, swing, gypsy-jazz and electronic beneath a swell of three-part harmonies and contagious melodies, the collaboration has always left the band and its listeners eagerly guessing what will come next.
After three cross-Canada tours, two meditation retreats and a healthy dose of clown school the band continues to develop its live show into an interactive, honest experience that works just as well at a small house concert or café as it does at a large club or festival. The band offers two styles of live performance – intimate/acoustic (featuring guitar, piano, accordion, mandolin, percussion and three-part harmony) or dance floor/electronic with live vocals and instrumentation.
