After her recent Joy Party Tour visiting some of the United States’ sunniest locales in celebration of the launch of new record GO TiME: Brooklyn, young saxophonist-singer-songwriter phenom Grace Kelly is ready to kick it up a notch with the second installment of the innovative combination video/audio album, [GO TiME: Brooklyn 2]. The official album release show will premiere at the musician-founded multimedia art venue (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York City on July 26, 2018, with special guest Elliott Skinner of Thirdstory.
“I’m extremely excited to be preparing to release [GO TiME: Brooklyn 2], which features the latter half of the GO TiME: Brooklyn live show inside the Systems 2 recording studio. Fans on our tour and online loved the dynamism and audio quality of the music in the first CD, plus the ability to watch the professionally filmed video footage online whenever they want,” Kelly says. “This second album keeps those same core elements while pushing the envelope musically to explore the sonic world where jazz meets electronic, contemporary, and pop influences.”
Songs from [GO TiME: Brooklyn 2], which will include “Gracified” covers of classic Rolling Stones and Ray Charles hits, have already been seeing significant traction online. BuzzFeed Video’s Facebook clip of “Fish and Chips,” a dancing saxophone duet with Leo P of Too Many Zooz, has garnered over 395,000 views since mid-May. The new album will include the full track and video of “Fish and Chips” as well as the soulful fan favorite “Feels Like Home,” which was recorded as a duet with the aforementioned Elliott Skinner.
Featured by Vanity Fair as a millennial shaking up the jazz world, Grace Kelly’s genre-defying music and inventive digital content are pushing her to the forefront of the fusion scene, alongside names like Snarky Puppy, Jacob Collier, Cory Henry, Robert Glasper, Jon Batiste, and Too Many Zooz. Her snackable PopUp video series combining soulful sax solos with unexpected and exotic locales has over 2 million views, further establishing her brand as an artistic veteran with a digital native’s flair for innovation. [GO TiME: Brooklyn 2] is Kelly’s 12th album as a bandleader.
