ABOUT GRACE PETTIS
Grace epitomizes the term singer/songwriter. As a singer, her voice is both powerful and beautiful, and she uses it like a fine arts painter to color and craft her songs. American Songwriter Magazine wrote “As a decorated songwriter, Pettis blurs the lines between country, Americana and folk. Her soulful delivery of calculated lyric lines helps her tell stories for all generations.” Her songs have been recorded by many esteemed artists, including Sara Hickman and Ruthie Foster. Grace explains, “The songs that ring the truest often come from my own feelings and memories. People need upbeat songs they can dance to, but they need sad songs, too. Hard songs. The songs that are the hardest and most painful to write seem to be the most healing. I write from wherever I happen to be. If I’m happy, I write a happy song. If I’m sad, I write a sad song. If the world is on fire, so are my songs.”
ABOUT MARK CUTLER
Providence, RI singer/songwriter, Mark Cutler leads a variety of roots-rock bands, combines powerful lyrics with memorable melodies and driving rhythm. He spins tales about men who drink alone or hover over a lover. He sings stories about ghosts, midget wrestlers, walking in the woods, being remembered, just being alive and getting used to this. Former Schemers and Raindogs front man, Mark teams up with a variety of musicians and like Travis Bickle he will play “Anytime and anywhere” and sometimes he’ll show up alone with his guitar and he’ll sing whether you want him to or not.
