Grace Morrison

Grace Morrison has never allowed others to define her. Over the course of her prolific career, she’s released three exceedingly well received albums — I’m the Apple (2017), Reasons (2019) and Daughter (2021), each of which testify to her artistry and her acumen. 

She’s many things — a singer, songwriter, a mom, Renaissance Faire performer, and yes, even a  cranberry grower. Yet she pursues each activity with an uplifting attitude and authentic enthusiasm. It leaves an impact on her audiences, creating an emotional bond that’s both enduring and engaging. It’s the mark of an exceptional artist that finds her listeners leaving her shows feeling like they’ve found a new friend, met a kindred spirit and connected with someone who has engaged them with touching tunes, gentle humor and remarkable stories that resonate and reflect true life experiences.


Grace has patented a sound she calls "Saltwater Country.” She describes it as the idea that we need the ocean — and all sources of water for that matter — to provide a place that offers cleansing — not only physically, but spiritually as well. She expresses those sentiments in her songs and in her live performances, through the spoken interludes she shares between songs.


So too, her themes incorporate a variety of subjects all shared from a personal perspective — be it life as a new mom, accepting one’s body image, dealing with alcoholism, substance abuse and eating disorders, life in a small town and even by referencing historical scenarios as well.


Grace’s career has been built on one accomplishment after another. “My first concert was the Tori Amos/Alanis Morrisette 5 ½ weeks tour,” she recalls. “I remember sitting there thinking, ‘Someday I’m going to be onstage with those people.” My favorite thing about this record is that my last producer was on that stage. He’s Tori’s bass player. Full circle!”


Nevertheless, she made her initial impact singing back-up vocals for such notables as Eddie Money and Joey Molland of Badfinger before venturing out on her own. “Covid year 2020 was a gift to me in that regard,” she reflects. “Time stopped. I reassessed. Is music-making a career that I really want to pursue?  Would I rather go teach in a public school and have some kind of retirement plan?”


Ultimately, she realized on reflection that writing, recording and performing has put her on the path she was meant to pursue. With her new album, Maybe Modern, that realization comes to full fruition.
