““Grace Potter is the best female rock singer in the country right now…” This is according to USA Today and it would be real hard to argue with that assessment.
When she hit the main stage at the KAABOO Festival, she started rocking right from the outset. Her style is her own,and her voice is amazing. Multi-Talented, she played guitar, organ and sang for an a little more than an hour. The band covered all the hits from her first three albums and several songs from her new album “MIDNIGHT.” Grace has toured with the likes of The Dave Matthews Band, Avett Brothers, and collaborated with The Black Keys, Kenny Chesney and several others. Her band, the Nocturnal’s are all great musicians as well. This is a “Must See” show if you ever get a chance to catch her. Her newest album “Midnight” is now on sale.

“Vermont native Potter plays a mean guitar and pumps out vibrant waves of gospel-style organ while wailing over it all with a passionately fiery and notoriously powerful set of pipes. On top of that, the long, tall, blondish brunette is drop-dead gorgeous — not that that should really matter.” – LA Weekly
