"A little bit folk, a little bit country/Americana, and a whole lot of soul." - I wish I knew who coined this description for Grace, but I don't. It's a perfect description that finds its way into pretty much everything written about Grace and her music.
Originally from Alabama, Grace lived in Austin for awhile (where we first became familiar with her music), and now splits her time between Nashville and Ireland.
We first became aware of Grace's music through BettySoo. Grace, BS and Rebecca Loebe make up the sometimes trio Nobody's Girl, and it was a Nobody's Girl show that got us following Grace. Grace has released four full-length albums, the most recent being Working Woman (2021).
Asked about her conscious choice to work with an all-female/non-binary creative team for Working Woman, Grace explains, “As a feminist, I can't complain that the industry is unfair to women if I'm not actively working onwhatever level I'm at to change it for others ... Here in the US, women make up something like 22% of chart-topping artists, across all genres. We are 2% of the producers credited on those charts, and just about 12% of the songwriters. Less than 1% of chart-topping songs are written without men. Meaning, we are literally not hearing women. The fact is, women like me work our tails off. We have to, to carve out our place in the world. It's past time to recognize and honor women’s contributions. This is our time and we will make the rules. We are not asking for respect anymore. Now, we are demanding it."
