Crush of the Day: Grace Potter
Grace Potter is a talented and gorgeous musician who fronts roots rock outfit Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. And when we call here talented, we mean it – Potter sings, writes, and she plays guitar, the electric piano, organ and several other instruments.
The soulful blonde twenty something recorded her first solo album in 2004, and she released her first album with the Nocturnals in 2005, two years after they formed in Vermont. Potter has since written and sang on eight albums, seven with the Nocturnals, including two live LPs, this year’s ‘Live From the Legendary Sun Studio,’ and 2008’s ‘Live in Skowhegan.’
Potter and her band have cultivated a growing following with a steady stream of releases, tours, and late night TV appearances. They’ve opened for Dave Matthews Band and the Avett Brothers, played numerous festivals, including Bonnaroo, and have collaborated with members of The Black Keys, Kenny Chesney and Govt. Mule.
