Grace on Grace
I like to tell stories stories that, ordinarily, people wouldn't think about. My latest CD includes songs inspired by World War II, Anne Boleyn, addiction, and new love. But they all relate. We all feel the same things. Love, hate, anger, shame as a songwriter my job, my passion is to speak for the unspoken, the forgotten. And hopefully do it in a way that has you singing along with me.
