Complete with exclusive images and interviews.
To celebrate 25 years of Jeff Buckley’s first and only album, Grace, music biographer Jeff Apter and acclaimed photographer Merri Cyr have joined forces to document the record’s release in detail with 25 Years of Grace.
When released in 1994, Grace was hardly a hit; it was only three years later that Buckley’s debut record would become the legendary release it is today. In the years since, the album has made its way onto Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and 40 Greatest One Album Wonders lists, where it’s heralded as “a masterpiece of songwriting, musicianship and vocal prowess”.
The 240-page book features new interviews with those close to Buckley, revealing details about his creative direction, songwriting and selecting his songs for the record. What’s more, readers will catch a glimpse of previously unreleased photos by Cyr, Buckley’s official photographer.
25 Years of Grace is out now via Black Inc. For more info, head to the publisher’s website.
