ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GRACE ADELE & THE GRAND BAND

Imagine a perfect blend of Nashville and Vaudeville, incorporating sensibilities from Music City with Radio City, and you'll find the dynamic female-fronted Americana group, Grace Adele & The Grand Band. With a distinct vintage style, Grace Adele sets her stage with traditional American roots drawn from classic country, western swing, bluegrass, folk, and contemporary indie rock.

A native of Ohio, Grace Adele originally had her heart set on becoming a Rockette after years of classical training in ballet. Traveling between her hometown in Columbus to New York for auditions at Radio City Music Hall exhausted precious resources. The time she was at home, Grace Adele spent much of her time singing, eventually cuing a move to Music City. With the help of Keenan Wade, she assembled The Grand Band, a string band consisting of violin, double bass, guitar, and mandolin.

What's most striking about this collection is the authentic depth of sensibilities and tasteful approach Grace Adele and The Grand Band bring to studio sessions outside their touring schedule of more than 100 dates each year. Though this four-piece stands shoulder-to-shoulder with now-famous contemporaries in the genre, Grace Adele and The Grand Band don't attempt to emulate those on the front lines of the Americana movement. Moreover, Grammy-winning producer, Phil Harris gave rein to Grace Adele's confident vocal range alongside the band's ability to complement her. The CD features guest appearances by Chris Scruggs, Buddy Spicher, David Mayfield, and Ketch Secor.

The Grace Adele brand stands for an elegant feminine vintage style hailing back to old country music. Eschewing the ubiquitous whisper-thin songbird approach to her vocals, she sets the tone for The Grand Band intersecting the crossroads where country's female pioneers blazed a path more than half a century ago. She reaches in to the dark corners of life's losses as easily as sailing full tilt on uptempo melodies meant for drives along sunny country roads with the radio turned all the way up and the windows rolled all the way down.


"Sweet and Lonesome," "Brown Eyes," "Something to Say," "All My Dreams" and especially "Over You" capture the spirit of Grace Adele and The Grand Band while "Never Lost," "Movin' On," and "Where Will I Go" favor more indie rock and folk-tinged flavors in the full palette of colors on "The Grand Sessions." Grace Adele's songwriting captures traditional themes delivered with an authentic feminine patina. No artifice is needed when classic values are the foundation of intent. There is no question about why the music is important. Long-established storytelling traditions combined with time-honored music styles hold a very special place within the hearts of people around the world.

The Grand Sessions is moderately priced at $10. The full-length CD is available on iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.com.
