Sounds on the Terrace
– Grace Cooke

Experience the magic of Circular Quay from the prime vantage point of the MCA Sculpture Terrace, enjoy the sounds of talented performers over dinner and drinks from the MCA Cafe.

Grace Cooke is a singer-songwriter from Sydney.

Grace’s elegant compositions pair an alternative country vibe, with strong Karen Carpenter-like vocals that demand attention and will beautify your aural cavities. Many years of vocal support to folk and country artists, chorus lines and ventures into the Sydney pub rock scene, have molded a mature, reflective artist.

Waiting, is Grace’s debut EP release. Her tracks will draw you into her thoughtful reverie in the ever-present and universal expression of frustration, fear and impatience, in the pursuit of love. Grace’s vocals will send shivers down your spine and soothe your spirit.
