2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the Jeff Buckley masterpiece “Grace”. Released on 23 August 1994, “Grace” continues to captivate audiences worldwide with its hauntingly beautiful melodies and powerful lyrics.

To commemorate this milestone, acclaimed musician, solo artist and TAXIRIDE frontman, Jason Singh, along with his full band, will pay tribute to Jeff Buckley and this iconic album on its 30th Anniversary, 23 August, at MEMO Music Hall. Singh’s performances will be a celebration of Buckley’s life and music, showcasing the enduring impact of “Grace” on music lovers everywhere.

A timeless masterpiece, “Grace” showcases Buckley’s extraordinary talent as a singer-songwriter. The album features a mix of original songs and covers, each delivered with Buckley’s signature emotional depth and vocal range. Highlights from the album include the mesmerising “Hallelujah,” the soulful “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over,” and the anthemic “Grace.”

Singh’s connection to Buckley’s music runs deep, as he released a cover of Buckley’s “Last Goodbye” in 2018. Singh’s heartfelt rendition of “Last Goodbye” received high praise, with Buckley’s manager Dave Lory praising it as the best cover version of Last Goodbye he’s heard; further solidifying his status as a fitting vocalist to honour Buckley’s legacy.

Jason Singh is well aware of the task ahead of him in honouring this album and is excited by the challenge it brings “As crazy as it may seem to take this on, it’s a challenge I am excited for and looking forward to honouring. I know this album inside and out, every word, every note, every breath.”

Singh’s tribute will be a must-see event for fans of Buckley and music enthusiasts alike.
