“at once smart alluring and evocative”
– Mike Joyce, Washington Post

“The stuff of imaginative talent on the rise”
– Los Angels Times

“These days you see unusual simpatico between jazz artists and the once-hostile world that seemed to encroach upon their esoteric ideals and 11-minute improvisations. It seems there is now a place for such sophisticated artistry, especially if blended cleverly into new hybrid concoctions. Kathleen Grace sipped at the deep well of jazz for years before veering off her chosen path into the countryside, where she now frolics in a space where all tastes are safe, be it country, bluegrass or jazz. In her most recent album, No Place to Fall, Grace’s bright, clear voice reflects simple beauty and subtle wisdom, traits shared by all memorable singers from Billie Holiday to Emmylou Harris.
– The LA Weekly 2017

“Singer mixes styles to create her own sound… (a) hybrid of country, jazz and classic torch songs.”
– San Francisco Chronicle

“an instinct for classic country charm… a gorgeous album”
– The Tucson Weekly

“Kathleen Grace learned an appreciation for music among the tumbleweeds of Tucson AZ and something of that ethereal desert town coats each tune on this album with a layer of dust. Echoes of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris’ Tucson indebted Western Wall reverberate on this record.”
– Downbeat

“this stylistic turn fits her so well there isn’t a weak cut on the album…[Grace's] compositions stand up well against the elite cadre of artists she draws from… this intimate in-studio album sounds as natural as Kathleen’s voice.”

“Genre-blurring dexterity…The airwaves should be full of Grace.”
