FAME Recommends: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Debut UK album ‘Grace Potter and the Nocturnals’ Released August 16th on Island Records Fresh from crashing into the top 20 of the Billboard US Album chart last week.Named one of Rolling Stone’s Best New Bands of 2010, the five piece group’s 13 track offering transcends their blues based rock roots.

Showcasing soul-studded grooves and moreish melodies, not to mention front siren and multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter’s way with a whiskey sodden wail, this gang of hard rockin’, hard tourin’ musicians’ first UK album cherry picks from the classic rock of Janis Jopln, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Fleetwood Mac.
An established act at home in North America, the Vermont based band have already released three records in US while Grace has worked with the Oscar winning musician, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss producer and Coen Brothers collaborator T Bone Burnett.

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are: Grace Potter (vocals/keys), Scott Tournet (lead guitar), Benny Yurco (rhythm guitar), Catherine Popper (bassist) and Matt Burr (drums).
