New Age Vocal: Fiona Joy-Grace

Fiona Joy has a new album out titled Signature-Synchronicity. The track of focus is a special one for the artist and I am certain will become one for her listeners.

"Grace" holds a lot of meaning for Fiona. The slow acoustic vocal version of the track is one of elegance and a message to all listeners regarding the delicate balance of life and the healing powers of music.

Fiona said: "Grace" came to me as a gift at a time when I was feeling down. Someone emailed me to say they had a still born baby girl 10 years earlier and listened to my music to help her recover. She named the baby Grace. Now, 10 years later she has a daughter called Sophie Grace and together they sit and listen my music to remember her baby sister. The message to me was that my music had stood the test of time and that the most important thing I can do with it is to touch and help others. 

Fiona's angelic and comforting vocals and the eloquent piano she plays are the perfect combination on this track.

  1. Thanks Keith, great to be able to share this back-story about 'Grace'. The song was first heard on the Grammy winning album Winds of Samsara in 2014(Wouter Kellerman/Ricky Kej). Writing lyrics seemed like a good way to add to the story for the version on my own album.
