In terms of both geography and culture, Vermont can seem like a different world from Tennessee, yet Green Mountain State native Grace Potter creates music that is steeped in the country music of Nashville and the soulful grooves of Memphis. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist first burst onto the scene in the early 2000s with an accomplished roots rock sound. Following a string of critically-acclaimed releases with her band the Nocturnals, including the breakout success of the album The Lion the Beast the Beat in 2012, Potter decided to pursue a solo career. In 2013, she self-released her debut album Original Soul, earning her favorable comparisons to artists like Norah Jones, Janis Joplin, and Bonnie Raitt. That same year, she joined Kenny Chesney on the duet “You and Tequila,” which was nominated for Single of the Year at the American Country Awards. The artist’s latest album, 2019’s Daylight, was deemed as some of Potter’s finest work and praised for its fiery yet stripped-down approach.
