Grace Love IS soul music. And I tell you this with no hesitation - in the next five years, this Seattle vocalist will be a household name. We're incredibly lucky to have encouraged her to come across the water for a couple of shows, so please come out and show your support for this incredibly talented singer and her band.

Grace has been performing professionally for 10 years now, and grew up watching her mother sing in the church choir in Memphis, Tennessee. She knew she had an affinity for performing when at just four years old she was asked to sing “This Little Light of Mine” in front of the congregation. As she grew older she realized her inspiration no longer came solely from the church, but from soul and rock and roll artists like Ray Charles. “There’s sound and inspiration all over if you are quiet enough” while listening to all the sounds within the space. Sometimes she’ll use the creaks and groans of the apartment to find inspiration for melodies. Her voice is unique indeed. While still among the greats like Etta James and Mahalia Jackson, Grace presses the bounds of conventional crooning, altering her voice from low and gravely to bright and gospel-like within the same breath.

Grace has performed and recorded everywhere from Manchester, England to New York City, finally finding her home in Seattle. Grace has performed at numerous regional and national festivals and clubs, including Seattle's Bumbershoot Music Festival, and is headlining the upcoming Cannonball Soul Weekender in Milan, Italy.

Do NOT miss this show. This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the best soul singers in the world in a small, intimate setting.
