Tommy Oakes: Grace Potter

Grace Potter, a 28 year-old college drop out, is now doing it big. After being discovered in a local cafĂ© venue by future band-mate, Matt Burr, the two musicians created the five-man band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. The band has been producing and touring since 2005 and have had much success on the way. In 2004, however, Grace Potter released her album, "Original Soul," her only solo project in which she plays the organ, piano, guitar, and all the while sharing her incredible voice. It has a little more of a rich and soulful feel than her more recent music with the Nocturnals, which tends to lean on the more electric and grunge side of music, although Potter’s voice remains pure as gold. Here is a track from "Original Soul" and be sure to look out for more from her and the Nocturnals. Enjoy
