Ben Taylor
Ben Taylor
Son of music legends Carly Simon and James Taylor, Ben Taylor has a way with melody and a mastery of the understated lyric. Although he was hesitant to follow in their footsteps, his music shows the influence of both his parents. Taylor's folk-rock-pop melodies accentuate his smooth and effortless vocal quality and his immaculate guitar skills.

Originally from Milwaukee, Grace moved to New York six years ago to attend NYU and now lives in Brooklyn. Although only 24, Grace has had an amazing journey so far. As a 10 year old in Milwaukee, she decided that she wanted to sing in an inner city gospel choir and years of doing that shaped not only her soulful voice but also gave her a worldview much broader than your ordinary kid growing up in a suburb.

Grace had multiple brushes with fame as a teenager, having sung on the famed “Showtime at the Apollo” in Harlem, at the Kennedy Center, The Ella Awards, and on The Today Show. She was recognized by the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and their YoungArts program, naming her a National Winner in Popular Voice and a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. She even graced “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” handpicked by Oprah from over 400,000 video contest entrants to perform on the show. The Oprah appearance threw Grace into a tornado of the major label music business for which she was unprepared, and ultimately she walked away from the “hit making machinery” to chart her own course. At NYU she started to seriously pursue a career in music in a number of different combos before deciding to go solo in 2010 and embark on the path of recording an album of her own material. Enlisting the aid of Grammy Award winner producer Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, Diane Birch, Dionne Warwick) her debut album, “Hope & Heart,” on which she wrote or co-wrote every song, is a musical statement of a young artist and citizen of the world coming into her own.

In the short time since the September 13th self-release of Hope & Heart, Weber has won over a sizable fan base, and achieved significant milestones such as appearing on the prestigious NPR’s Mountain Stage and having the video for first single, “Everything to Me,” debut on the home pages of VEVO and AOL Music. The album achieved Top Ten status on the singer songwriter chart of iTunes in the U.S. and Japan and her music has been featured at Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and U.S. Airways. Grace is currently in pre-production for her much anticipated Sophomore album.
