Tim and Jeff Buckley’s legacy has inspired generations of musicians and listeners. A State of Grace celebrates their brilliant, complicated lives and music, bringing together images and stories with six stellar singers and musicians with close connections to both.

This is a moving, definitive portrait of two of the most beloved voices in rock, overseen by Gary Lucas, the legendary New York guitarist / composer who worked closely with Jeff, co-writing the immortal songs Grace and Mojo Pin.

Assembled to recapture the magic of Tim and Jeff Buckley’s songs are musicians with the depth, breadth and empathy to do them justice: Martha Wainwright, Casper Clausen (of Efterklang), Willy Mason, Camille O’Sullivan, Steve Kilbey and Cold Specks led by guitarist/producer Gary Lucas with his band Gods and Monsters.

Jeff Buckley completed only one studio album in his too brief life – drowning at 30 – but it made him one of the most influential musicians of the 1990s and beyond. Grace, that fragile yet ferocious miracle of an album, moved millions. Jeff only met his father a handful of times – Tim died in 1975, aged 28. But the musical legacy Tim left behind, a wildly eclectic and brilliant collection of eight studio albums, served as Jeff’s musical touchstone. Tim and Jeff’s music becomes a point of departure for a soul-stirring reinterpretation and exploration in this premiere event.
