Join Grace and friends for the release of her highly anticipated new album, Two Birds, produced at Blue Rock Studio by Billy Crockett.
With stories in her soul, a dash of courage, and a smile that melts walls, Grace Pettis is busy doing what she was born to do. Of course, the life of an independent touring artist is tons of hard work. Somehow she makes it look easy.
In her short career, she has built a reputation as a respected songwriter among artists, industry, and fans. While a senior in college, in 2009, Grace released her self-titled debut album recorded at the renowned Blue Rock Studio in Wimberley, TX. After releasing her album she splashed onto the music scene winning NPR’s 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 presenters and radio programmers as a young standout. 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” across the US with Willie Porter, David Wilcox, and Pierce Pettis. She then continued to tour in various formats from solo shows, performances with her legendary songwriting father Pierce Pettis, to trio performances with her producer Billy Crockett and cellist Dirje Smith.
Grace’s recent successes include a win at the 2011 Kerrville New Folk Contest, an Official Show Case at the 2012 New Music Seminar. Her fans highly anticipate her second album, Two Birds. Meanwhile, Grace will be touring across the country, singing her heart out and making it look easy.
