Biography

Grace Falls is a rather cryptic name for a band, like one of those oxymoronic phrases such as ‘jumbo shrimp’ or ‘military intelligence’. However, the name also implies something of a yin and yang balance, as well as the image of an angel falling from heaven.

While Grace Falls’ founding member and guitarist Dean Taylor-Levey isn’t exactly a fallen angel, he certainly has a dark side. In a past life, Dean carved out an international reputation making frightening real replicas of horror movie props. For legal reasons he is unable to divulge exactly which replicas he made from exactly which movies, but suffice it to say that Dean is on a first name basis with actor Robert Englund who played Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street. Dean has given up attending horror film conventions since immigrating to New Zealand, focusing instead on his music … Grace Falls in particular.

With an accessible rock sound that sits somewhere between the Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters and Counting Crows, Dean says that everything surrounding the band’s formation was guided by a magical intertwining that was equal parts coincidence and destiny. “We all crossed paths or connected in some way before Grace Falls without knowing it,” he says. “I read about the band’s assistant producer in the book that inspired me to move to New Zealand from Liverpool, England, without
knowing I would end up working with him.”
