Grace Potter is a Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and internationally acclaimed rock musician from Waitsfield, Vermont. She formed Grace Potter & the Nocturnals in 2002 while attending St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. Grace Potter & the Nocturnals toured extensively, playing festivals and venues throughout North America.
After signing with major record label Hollywood Records, Potter and her band went on to release four full-length studio albums: Nothing But The Water (2006), This is Somewhere (2007), Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (2010), and The Lion The Beast The Beat (2012), with the latter two both debuting in the Top 20 of the Billboard charts. Potter also duetted with country singer Kenny Chesney on the Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling hit “You and Tequila” in 2010.
In 2011 Potter established the Grand Point North Festival, a Vermont-based two-day music festival that has featured The Avett Brothers, Fitz & The Tantrums, The Flaming Lips, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Trey Anastasio, and many more. Potter has played every major US music festival, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo, as well as international festivals such as Byron Bay Bluesfest, Rock in Rio, and Fuji Rock. She has shared the stage with legendary artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers Band, Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Mavis Staples. In 2015 Potter received the ASCAP Harry Chapin Vanguard Award by WhyHunger for her charitable work. She was also honored by her home state with the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, Vermont’s highest honor in the creative sector. Her 2015 album, Midnight, was released to critical acclaim, debuting at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Back in summer 2021, Grace Potter took off on a solo cross-country road trip that would soon bring a life-saving reconnection with her most unbridled self. Heading out on Route 66 from her home in Topanga Canyon, theVermont-born artist spent the coming weeks crashing in roadside motels and taking time each night to deliriously transcribe the song ideas she’d dreamed up behind the wheel, often scrawling those notes onto the backs of postcards and motel notepads. After completing two more trips across the U.S. on her own—and partly navigating her way with the help of hand-drawn maps from self-styled historians of Route 66—Potter flew to Nashville for a series of recording sessions that quickly gave way to her most magnificently unfettered collection of songs to date. Equal parts fearlessly raw memoir and carnivalesque fable, the result is a body of work that goes far beyond the typical album experience to deliver something much more all-enveloping: the original motion picture soundtrack to a profoundly transformative moment in Potter’s life, a fantastically twisted odyssey populated by the hitchhikers and outlaws and other lifelong wanderers who roam through the wonderland of her psyche.
The follow-up to Daylight—a 2019 release that earned GRAMMY nominations for Best Rock Album, and Best Rock Performance—Mother Roadmarks the start of a thrilling new era of a career that’s included turning out seven acclaimed albums, sharing the stage with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Robert Plant, and the Allman Brothers Band, and playing nearly every major music festival (in addition to launching her own festival, Burlington’s Grand Point North). Over the course of its 10 larger-than-life tracks, the album fuses elements of soul, blues, country, and timeless rock-and- roll with masterful abandon, thanks to the vibrant musicianship of Potter and her collaborators: legendary keyboardist Benmont Tench, guitarist Nick Bockrath (Cage The Elephant), bassist Tim Deaux (The Whigs, Kings Of Leon), pedal-steel guitarist Dan Kalisher (Fitz And The Tantrums, Noah Cyrus), Potter’s longtime drummer Matt Musty, and her husband Eric Valentine (a multi- instrumentalist who plays everything from African lute to synth bass onMother Road). Produced by Valentine (who’s also worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Slash, and Weezer) and recorded at RCA’s famed Studio A,Mother Roadfully echoes the ecstatic catharsis of its recording sessions, a process that Potter alternately likens to a tantrum and a haunting.“I didn’t have any real intention of making a record; I just thought I’d get into a room with some friends and mess around with these unfinished ideas I’d been gathering,” she says. “But then an entire album fell out of me, including all the lyrics—the blanks had been filled in, like my subconscious had created finished sentences spoken distinctly from the perspective of all these characters that were living inside me.”
Growing up in Philadelphia on a steady diet of R&B, hip-hop, rock, blues, and soul, Gilfillian gravitated to records that ignited his mind while making his body move. Following his electrifying 2016 debut EP with upbeat singles like “High” and “Troublemaker” in 2018, Gilfillian signed to Capitol Records and hit the road––performing with the likes of Anderson East, Keith Urban, Gladys Knight, Kaleo, The Fray, Mavis Staples, and more. In 2020, Gilfillian released his debut album, “Black Hole Rainbow,” which was nominated for Grammy – “Best Engineered Album.” After civil unrest in June 2020 following the murder of George Floyd, he re -recorded Marvin Gaye’s iconic album, “What’s Going On,” releasing it in fall of 2020 around the election. He performed “Mercy Mercy Me” for Colbert “Stay At Home.” In December 2020, Gilfillian performed his top 5 AAA hit, “The Good Life,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He’s currently writing for LP#2.
