Grace Potter And The Nocturnals
WebsiteGrace Potter And The Nocturnals
She’s still in her 20s, but Grace Potter’s warm, gutsy voice sits comfortably beside those of vets such as Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt. With their touches of classic rock and Southern soul, albums like 2005’s Nothing But The Water and 2007’s This Is Somewhere found a home among fans who miss the good old days of Sheryl Crow’s artistic peak (whenever that was). Unsurprisingly, both “Apologies” and “Falling Or Flying” became staples of TV sudsers like Grey’s Anatomy and One Tree Hill. Seeming intent on being prime-time-ready, the band’s 2010 self-titled album was polished to a much higher gloss than previous efforts, as a result landing the band on Rolling Stone’s list of Best New Bands of 2010. Most recently, Potter has been making the late-night TV rounds with the slinky “Never Go Back,” from the upcoming The Lion, The Beast, The Beat, due June 12.
