|"a sonic hologram"

"pronounces the truth like a Delphic oracle"
Simon Harper, Music World Roundup
"poet and voice artist...Grenier's metaphors are dripping with irony,
hauntingly recited, naked and pure, a fine conjurer of sinewy imagery"
Raul Da Gama
Captivating and lyricaly gifted, spoken word artist, Grenier's work is rooted in the music, lyrics and times of the '60's. Calling for action through the spirit of art, activism, unity and peace, her writings are a voice of dissension...socially relevant and politically challenging.
She performs solo, in a duo with bassist/composer Albey Balgochian, and in various ensembles from acoustic to electric bands. Poetically gracing the stage with many noted artists from spoken word...to musicians...to dancers; Miguel Algarin, Amiri Baraka, Ann Walden, Steve Dalachinsky, Namaya The Jazz Poet, E.J. Antonio, the lovely Fay Victor, Yuko Otomo, Ken Filiano, Charles Gayle, Fracois Grillot, Reggie Scanlan, Sabir Mateen, Mayo Yamaguchi...
