Dylan talked about his mysucal journey to VoyageLA in 2019:
”I was a child jazz piano prodigy growing up in the small town Wimberley outside of Austin, Texas in the early 2000s. Had a mentor Jimmy Neeley (1927-2015) who was a jazz master from Harlem, NYC (Played with Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Gene Krupa, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong). Used to go over to Jimmy’s house after high school every day and play in the dark, study music theory, learn to arrange and write music. Got my first paid music gig when I was 14. At 18, I moved to NYC and started school at the New School Of Jazz and Contemporary Music. Luckily I have been blessed with only having music as a job my entire life. I have played thousands of gigs at this point. What sets me apart from others is I am an eccentric jazz musician from Harlem in the 1940s who lives in 2018 and is absorbing all the music that has been written since the 40s up till now and has access to modern technology and using all of these tools to make music in present-day 2018.” (VoyageLA jan 2 2019)

Profile on VoyageLA

As a rule, we only have bios on artists that Grace has worked with or who have had a part in the creation or production of her music. The amount of information on each of these artists varies greatly, dependent on how much has been readily available. We have tried to identify the artists correctly, but sometimes it has been difficult to determine who exactly is behind the name. Unless otherwise stated, the bios are based on data retrieved at the start of 2021.
