Singer Grace Rodson was born in Galicia, Spain and currently resides in London. She is undoubtedly an artist who was born to perform. Her passion and love for music are unique. She can sing all kinds of styles and genres while in the middle she creates dancing tunes from pop, disco and funk melodies, giving the listener an intense and vivid picture of what music means to her: “Freedom”.
Grace Rodson has also worked with prestigious musicians such as Dave Kilminster internationally known as the touring guitarist of Roger Waters’ The Wall, and Xantoné Blacq the keyboardist of the late Amy Winehouse.

Grace Rodson is an award winning of the GSD Latin Music Awards 2011, given to Latin musicians in London every two years, winning in 3 categories: Best Album, Best Female Singer and Best Song "It Will Rain" and headlined the Mayor's Newham Show in 2011 followed by a mini-tour in Galicia (Spain) with her acoustic Trio format in April 2012 and invited to be part of the Olympics 2012 by performing at one of the parks in London during the Games.

Grace is very much acclaimed as an artist-singer-performer in the United Kingdom, and is currently expanding her musical talents to new horizons in the United States. She has signed with Global Journey Media USA! The year 2014 looks so promising!

As a favorite Latin act, Grace Rodson performs every Friday at “SARASTRO”, one of the most distinctive and must see restaurants located in the heart of Theatreland in London.
