“Having recently witnessed Grace on stage and heard her perform material from her debut album as well as yet to be recorded compositions, I can attest that Grace weaves words and melodies into memorable songs with a regularity that you’d only expect from a seasoned troubadour.”

-Arthur Wood, Maverick Magazine 
Grace has solidified her reputation as an accomplished songwriter with her recent win at the 2011 Kerrville New Folk Contest, as well as being asked to perform at the2011 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist Showcase.  

In the fall of 2009 Grace released her self-titled debut album recorded at the renowned Blue Rock Studio in Wimberley, TX.  After releasing her album she splashed on to the music scene winning NPRs 2009 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, where her, “Nine to Five Girl” was selected for the “Best Song” award.  

Grace carried this momentum when she performed as an “Official Showcase Artist,”at the 2010 International Folk Alliance conference, where she captured the attention of John Platt, Rich Warren and many others as one of the young standouts.  Later that spring Grace won the Wildflower Performing Songwriter Contest Grand Prize, and the “People’s Choice” award.  

Grace went on to join the Storyville Coffee “Freedom Tour” with the likes of Willie Porter, David Wilcox, and Pierce Pettis.  After touring with Storyville Coffee in the summer she continued to tour in various arrangements from solo, to duo performances with Pierce Pettis, to trio performances with Billy Crockett and Dirje Smith.  

Grace is now gearing up to record her highly anticipated second album, which will be released early 2012.  In the meantime Grace will be touring across the country building on her ever growing fan base.

The Show starts at 8pm/$7.   With special guest Curtis Prince.
