Released on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Jeff Buckley’s iconic “Grace” album, the new album features new studio versions of a dozen songsco-written by Gary Lucas and his late partner Jeff Buckley during the time they worked together as Gods and Monsters in 1991-92.

Recorded in Rome in late 2018 and produced by Francesco Arpino, the new album showcases Lucas’s formidable guitar playing and songwriting paired with the angelic vocals of Italian singer The Niro.

Their new album includes the Buckley/Lucas anthems ”Grace” and “Mojo Pin” which open the “Grace” album, plus 5 Buckley/Lucas songs never before officially released.

Reviews incoming have been superlative,
