Libby Grace Job
By profession, Libby Grace is a music composer. She stirred conversation for the first time after collaborating with Joshua Homme’s motley crew Desert Sessions. She gave her vocals in the song “If You Run”, directed by her late husband Rio Hackford.
“If You Run” stars Joshua and DS newcomer Libby Grace as a mysterious hitchhiker, following them on a sinister trip through the Joshua Tree desert, culminating in a freakishly hallucinatory finale set at the famed Rancho De La Luna studio. Hackford’s “If You Run” visualization also stars DS collaborators Billy Gibbons, Dave Catching, Matt Sweeney, Stella Mozgawa, and Carla Azar.
Her husband revealed to DIY, “The video was inspired by Josh bringing an unknown Libby Grace into the Dessert Sessions arena to show her haunting magic to the world.”
He added, “Homme, Sweeney, and I are some of the only people who have heard Libby’s music, so the idea of them introducing her to the players and recording process lit the fuse. The song lent itself perfectly to the lonesome desert landscape and the spell that the Rancho can cast on anyone that passes through its doors.”
Libby joined Desert Sessions as a guitarist, vocalist, and singer-songwriter. She is a family friend of Joshua Homme and invited Libby to join the band to take a break from full-time mom duties and give it a shot.
Libby started playing guitar and writing songs as a kid. But, she has always been put off by the idea of public performance. The laid-back process of the Desert Sessions (DS), and working with people she already knew socially, made it a gentle baptism.
“What it did for me, ’cause it’s so different from what my life is, is that it showed me another version of myself that exists that I need to feed,” Libby told GQ. “That it can exist, and so can mom and so can wife.”
However, many of the fans of the band believed that it was Lady Gaga and Libby was just the face on the video. Fans had a long discussion on Reddit claiming it was the Poker Face singer who sang that song because of the similarity in their voice and Libby’s lack of profile in the public domain.
Whereas, others claimed that it was PJ Harvey (@pjharveyofficial) in disguise.
But, one person on Reddit who knew her personally claimed, “I know her. She’s a very private, talented, down-to-earth, wife, mother, beyond beautiful inside and out.“
