Grace Ethel Knight is an English-born, Australian vocalist, saxophone player and songwriter. She was a mainstay of Indie pop group Eurogliders during the 1980s which formed in Perth. Knight later became a solo jazz singer and musician based in Sydney. In 1984, Eurogliders released an Australian top ten album, This Island, which spawned their #2 hit single, "Heaven". "Heaven" also peaked at #21 on the United States, Billboard Mainstream Rock charts and appeared on the Hot 100. The song, written by Euroglider's guitarist, Bernie Lynch, and vocals by Knight, was their only hit in United States. Knight and Lynch married in 1985 but separated soon after. Another Australian top ten album, Absolutely, followed for Eurogliders in 1985, which provided three further local top ten singles, "We Will Together", "The City of Soul" and "Can't Wait to See You". Since Eurogliders disbanded in 1989, Knight has had a successful career as a jazz singer. Knight made a cameo appearance in the 1990 TV series Come In Spinner and sang on its soundtrack, Come in Spinner, recorded with jazz artist Vince Jones, which peaked at #4 on the Australian Recording Industry Association albums charts.

Eurogliders briefly reformed with Lynch and Knight in 2005 to release two additional albums by 2007, Knight returned to her solo career and released Willow in 2008.
