“Jolie Goodnight is exactly the kind of voice us vocal jazz lovers hope to hear from the new generation.”
- Esther Berlanga-Ryan, Something Else! Reviews
Jolie Goodnight is a creative tour-de-force, an international jazz and rockabilly singer who is, “…steamy and seductive in a lovably old fashioned way.” (Knoxville News.) Hailing back to the days of glitz and glamour, Jolie Goodnight has dazzled audiences around the world with classic fan dances and sensational singing. Although she is hailed as “… a tender voice that could melt a stone heart,” (MOJO Magazine) Goodnight is well known for her dirty blues tunes and surprising audiences with a larger than life voice, a voice that’s been said to “drip from her mouth like sweet molasses.” She has been a member of the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue since October of 2010, after performing with Hell on Heels in San Diego from 2007 to 2009. She released her debut album "Say Goodnight Gracey" in 2011 and was Miss Tiki Oasis 2015, 2nd Runner Up Miss Viva Las Vegas 2012, and was the winner of "Best Tease" and "Audience Choice" of the Texas Burlesque Festival in 2011. Luxuriating always in a performer’s life, she is also the bandleader and singer for rockabilly band, Jolie and The Jackalopes, as well as Jolie Goodnight & Her Swing Band. She tours internationally gracing the stages at The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, The Windy City Burlesque Festival, New Orleans Burlesque Festival, Southwest Burlesque Festival, Dallas Burlesque Festival, Houston Burlesque Festival and more!
Daughter of the legendary record producer Joe Gracey and singer song-writer Kimmie Rhodes, Goodnight was born in Austin, Texas into a world-wide showbiz life falling asleep in guitar cases backstage to the lullaby of the voices of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, rockabilly queens and cosmic country heroes. A classically trained actress and dancer at St. Edward’s University and The University of San Diego, she has performed in productions including “Footloose,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” and “The Way of the World.” As a pin up model she has been featured in Rockabilly Magazine, Retro Lovely, Pin Curl Magazine, Bachelor Pad, Pin Up Playing Cards, Texas Women with Texas Tattoos, and The Austin Post. Something Else Reviews describes her as “exactly the kind of voice us vocal jazz lovers hope to hear from the new generation,” simply put, she’s your beacon in the night.
