Grace McLean — Vocalist
Grace McLean brings her “whip-smart” songwriting (New York Times), “electrifying” presence (Huffington Post) and “cringey” journal entries (Grace’s mom) to Little Island this summer. Fresh on the heels of the release of “Reckless,” this first single and music video from her forthcoming debut full length album, expect wildly original music, re-imagined covers, special guests, stories about boys and probably bubbles.
Called “electrifying” by The Huffington Post and “phenomenal” by The New York Times, Grace McLean is a multi-hyphenate actor-singer-writer. In addition to performing in the New York theater scene on Broadway and off, Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music.
Grace is a Writer In Residence at Lincoln Center Theater where her first original musical IN THE GREEN was commissioned and produced, received a 2020 Richard Rodgers Award, and a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical. She has had two artistic ambassadorships with the US State Department touring Pakistan (2015) and Russia (2018), and her band performed in both the 2015 and 2016 Lincoln Center American Songbook series. Grace is a Broadway Women’s Fund’s Woman to Watch (2021), Jonathan Larson Grant recipient (2021), a member of The Civilians R&D Group (2019-2020), MacDowell Fellow (2018) and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Emerging Artist (2017). Grace McLean & Them Apples have released 2 EPs, “Make Me Breakfast” and “Natrual Disaster,” and are looking forward to releasing a full length album soon. The IN THE GREEN original cast album is available from Ghostlight Records.
