Grace Buford

Not only am I a professional musician and private music instructor, I am also a recent graduate from DeVry University and interested in doing some freelance web & graphic design work at the Jr. Designer level. I really enjoy using the Adobe Creative Suite 5 Software and seek to improve my skills in the programs. I graduated with honors from DeVry University where I received an Associates Degree in Applied Science Web Graphic Design. With the skills I have acquired through my course of study, I believe I would be a valuable team player for any company seeking to employ new graduates.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching music to students and performing, but I am looking to expand my creative horizons by putting my degree to good use. If you’re interested in learning about my music, feel free to read the excerpt below regarding my stage name, Cylindrian Rutabaga along with my three solo self released albums.

Cylindrian Rutabaga

Cylindrian is the virtual representation of Atlanta Singer/Songwriter, Grace Buford, who has been writing songs and performing in Second Life and the regional Southeastern United States with her unique blend of folk, pop, blues, and soul wrapped up into the phrase of Modern Acoustic Folk. Grace’s desire is to emotionally reach and enrich peoples lives through her music around the world one listener at a time.

    Hey Baby Gurl,

    Now you are veteran traveler…write a song about
    airports! Let Juel show the freedom of being
    on your own and drinking something besides off brand
    Mountain Dew! Maw says…be wild and free!
    Wish I could hear the two of you singing and laughing
    and having crazy fun.

    Love and hugs,

    Your SL Maw

    I just had to stop by and drop my 2€ cent… heheh…. i Love your voice… reminds me a bit of Tori Amos, someone i used to hear a looong time ago, and now thru SL i rediscover the wonderful peace and feelings a voice like yours is able to “Grace” our ears with…

    I just have an itsy bitsy complaint….. i’m in Europe… so i can’t attend as many live shows as i’d like to…
    whish you could perform live around the clock….. :s hehehe… kidding 🙂

    Thank you


  24. I heard you at a club (sl) a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed your music. Now today I got a group notice informing me that you were performing in Roswell. Such a small world. I am about 1.5 hours southwest of you. Unfortunately my work schedule conflicts prevent me from seeing you live in person, or live in sl.

  25. Grace rules. Grace rocks. Grace is amazing.


  26. very interesting, but I don’t agree with you

  27. Oh, and did not know about it. Thanks for the information …

  28. Thank you so much for adding Second Life Africa as a ‘benefit’ on your website. We appreciate it very much. I adore your music.
