Gracie (Coates) and Rachel (Ruggles) are a remarkable new Brooklyn-based orchestral pop piano and violin duo with a tendency towards stark contrast in both sound and visuals. With strong vocals, a heightened sense of drama, and plenty of musical skill to make good on their pop promises, they are aiming high leading up to the release of their debut album. Joined by a live percussionist, they dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to give us a preview.
Gracie and Rachel’s self-titled debut full length LP will be released June 23, 2017.
