If folk, roots, and Americana were on a Venn diagram, Grace Morrison would be squarely in the center.  With a career that began as a backup singer for rock icons like Eddie Money and Joey Molland (of the band Badfinger), Grace has become a regular on the national festival and touring circuit. She has won a number of prestigious awards including the Grand Prize of the New England Songwriting Competition and the WPRI Rhode Show Big Break contest where her music video was played on the season finale of American Idol.  The first half of 2019 is off to a great start for Grace as she was selected to be an Official Showcase performer at the Southeast Regional Folk Alliance (TN), named a finalist in the Wildflower (TX) Festival performing singer-songwriter contest, and selected to perform in the Emerging Artist Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (NY). Her sophomore solo album “Reasons" was released on May 10th and debuted the # 2 Top Album on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Contemporary Country Airplay Chart.

“Brilliant Voice” –Brian O’Donovan, WGBH Radio

“Grace is what they call, ‘a natural’ and you're music library would be remiss without a copy of Reasons!" - Gerg Anidem Indie Scene Radio

“Morrison gets even better with Reasons.” - Bill Copeland, Billcopelandmusicnews.com

“You are left feeling you want more.” - John Reed, Fatea Magazin

“Grace Morrison defies description.” - New Jersey Herald

“Her voice smacks of Jewel, and her style, cadence, song structure is every inch from the school of Joan Osborne, Lisa Loeb, Natalie Merchant. It’s uncanny. Had Morrison been born a decade earlier, she might’ve played Lilith Fair herself. — Lauren Daley, New Bedford Standard Times

“She is folk. She is pop. She’s unbelievably masterful behind the wheel of a guitar. Morrison’s vocal storytelling can make you cry; it can make you sing.” — Emily Clark Old Colony Memorial

“Her songs, vocal delivery, melodies are certain to draw the listener in leaving them wanting more and more and more.” — Jon Stein, WTBQ Radio

“Her songs are natural and pure, clear and silky. She has an ability to pick and choose influences and merge them into a sound that may be classified as “pop folk”, but has far more depth and layers to it.” — Red Line Roots
