In May 2010, Grey released her first solo album, Grey Matters. She has since performed with Paul McCartney and Tom Jones.[2]

BackgroundEdit

Grey was born in Barnet, north London, England and left school at age 15. With lots of promise, and the loving support of her family, she moved in with musicians John and Paul Williams, who encouraged her to follow a career in music. Grey released 'How Did You Know' with Kurtis Mantronix, and maintained her jazz group The Vodka Martinis. After Paul Williams died of pancreatic cancer, Grey formed a partnership with lyricist Cori Josias. A few years later, she met drummer, and now husband, Steve Vintner, who encouraged her to release her music, leading to the release of two albums, 'Grey Matters' and 'Chasing Tigers'.[3]

Musical style and influencesEdit

Brought up on all types of music from Neil Young and Joni Mitchell to James Taylor and Earth, Wind & Fire, Grey claims that those artists "never fail to inspire" her when it comes to writing her own material.[2]
