Sybil Grace is a recording artist on a mission to help the world 'grow every day.' Her surrealistic musical works transport the listener to a genre bending world of guitar virtuosity, deep emotional connection, and aesthetic development.
Sybil was born on an active volcano in Washington State. Her youth was spent exploring the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest and playing any instrument she could get her hands on. Early in life she was mostly self taught on her father's homemade guitar. At age 16 she bought her first guitar, a blue B.C. Rich Warlock.
As a teenager Sybil was drawn to the music of guitar virtuosos such as Al Di Meola, Glen Campbell, Luca Turilli, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker, Lita Ford, Marty Friedman, Hizaki, Mark Knopfler, Jennifer Batten, Brian Setzer, Herman Li, Sam Totman, Hide, Chet Atkins, Prince, Les Paul, and many others.
