Vibrant Young Singer-Songwriter's Debut Album Produced By Don Gilmore And John Fields


Alana Grace, a young singer-songwriter, has been signed by Columbia Records, with plans to release her debut album in 2005.

Music fans will get their first taste of the music of Alana Grace when they hear her original song, "Black Roses Red," a key track on the soundtrack of the upcoming teenage coming-of-age film "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," from Alcon Entertainment/Warner Bros. Pictures. Based on the New York Times young adult fiction bestseller by Ann Brashares, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"--starring Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel--opens nationwide on June 3, 2005. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants soundtrack album is in stores on Tuesday, May 24 from Columbia Records/Sony Music Soundtrax.

An extraordinary singer and charismatic performer, 17-year-old Alana spent the past five months (December 2004-April 2005) in a Los Angeles studio with producers Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Good Charlotte, Eve 6) and John Fields (Switchfoot, Pink, Andrew WK) creating one of the most eagerly-anticipated recording debut albums of the year.

She's cowritten all of the songs on her as-yet-untitled debut, which is mixed by music industry legends Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, the Cure, Aerosmith) and Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Hoobastank, Alanis Morissette).

Alana Grace is managed by Jon Landau Management and is represented by Creative Artists Agency.
