Called “electrifying” by The Huffington Post and “phenomenal” by The New York Times, Grace McLean is a multi-hyphenate actress-singer-writer-teacher on the rise. In addition to performing in the New York theater scene on Broadway and off, Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music, writing for her band Grace McLean & Them Apples. With a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, Fiona Apple's irreverence, Kimbra's sass and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs' rhythm, McLean adds up to one beautiful weirdo. Manhattan User's Guide writes, "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart,” and Stephen Holden of the New York Times says “Ms. McLean’s voice [is] a flexible instrument with unexpected reserves of power...Behind her playful adventurousness lies a well of passion.”
Grace McLean's first original musical IN THE GREEN was produced by Lincoln Center Theater this summer. She was a headlining performer and vocal instructor at the SingStrong a capella festivals in DC and Chicago in 2014, 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 has developed work at CAP21, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Goodspeed, The Orchard Project and The PiTCH. Grace received the 2017 Emerging Artist Award from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and is a 2018 MacDowell Colony Fellow. Grace McLean & Them Apples have released 2 EPs, “Make Me Breakfast” and “Natural Disaster,” and are looking forward to releasing a full length album this year.
The Broadway Buskers concert series is curated and hosted by Ben Cameron.
