Whether she’s performing her dynamic show; editing a music video, a documentary, the Evening News or for Primetime television, Grace Cosgrove presents high quality entertainment with creativity, originality, good story telling and integrity.

Grace grew up with music in her heart and a song on her lips. As a young child, she would visit her grandmother’s apartment in Queens, New York, and head straight for the intercom used to communicate with the building’s doorman. She’d then proceed to belt out her version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or “My Ship.” She doesn’t remember how old she was but says she “could barely reach the buzzer.” She would just press the button and sing away.

She grew into a fiercely independent young artist who desperately needed to express herself. Grace’s career started in the 8th grade when she was offered the opportunity to lead the singing in church with her guitar. She then began singing in other venues around her hometown in Larchmont, New York, until she left for Los Angeles to attend UCLA. After graduating, Grace became a background singer in the recording studios and returned to New York to sing commercial jingles and perform her original shows in front of live audiences.


Her shows are as distinctive as her voice, combining judiciously chosen material with witty juxtapositions. “I am not a human jukebox!!” Grace says, and when you hear her sing, you hear a range, a sense of dynamics, delivery, and control that is the opposite of the highly processed music we are used to. She has a tenderness, a depth of emotional sensitivity and gift for expressing a song’s meaning in subtle yet powerful ways. She sings straight from her heart -- not just with talent, but integrity.


Respected critic Bob Harrington of the New York Post described one of Grace’s shows as “so creatively conceived and fascinatingly juxtaposed that it approaches performance art….a unique presence…she’s challenging, intelligent and enormously entertaining…Grace Cosgrove doesn’t defy being categorized, she transcends it.” A short time after this review Grace won her first Backstage Bistro Award – an award tradition founded in large part by Harrington.

After a break from performing so she could raise her son, Grace has returned to the stage with some wonderful shows. Among them are: JUMP/CUT – an eclectic and unusual mix from the old and new American Songbook, WISHIN’ AND HOPIN’ – A Burt Bacharach Songbook, COLORS – The Music of Laura Nyro and now, under the generous mentorship and direction of legend Marilyn Maye, her new show SPEND AN EVENING WITH GRACE.

This year, Grace will release her first solo CD on her own label CHANTOOZ.
