Grace Evora

Grace Evora was born on February 2, 1969, on the island of Sao Vicente in Cape Verde. Since childhood Grace has displayed an immense interest in music both as a singer and drummer. Thanks to a musically gifted family, which is highly respected within the Cape Verdean music industry, it is no surprise that this talented musician and singer has reached such stardom.

At a young age Grace and his parents emigrated to Paris for a short time, and then took permanent residency in Rotterdam, Holland. Grace's big break came in 1989, when he was invited to play drums with the group Livity. This opportunity lead to a number of appearances with other groups such as Rabelados, Koladance, Cabo Verde Show and Splash!. When Livity approached Grace he was already established as a reputable drummer.

As luck would have it, the band decided to allow Grace to record one song entitled "Bia" on their second release. This song which represented the sensual and sentimental side of Grace immediately captured an audience that resulted in him becoming a solo artist.

Grace has released three Compact Discs titled "Total Love I, Total Love II" and finally, the much anticipated "Romance". In 1999, Grace collaborated with RB Records, Inc. to release "Romance". RB Records, Inc. from a label perspective decided to align Grace with recognized Cape Verdean musicians as well as allowing him the very best in production and engineering. This collaboration resulted in one of Grace's best work to date. Today, thanks to RB Records, Inc. Grace Evora is enjoying a thriving musical career both as a solo artist and also as a prominent drummer with the group Splash!.
