Welcome friends! My name is Grace, and I am just a few weeks away from recording my first E.P. here at Grange Recorders in Central Oregon. I have this incredible team of engineers, musicians, and artists pouring their talent into this project; and all we need now is your support. 

I believe in this project with my whole heart because it has been a long time coming. I was born into music. My mother sang over me from the very beginning and taught my sisters and I how to sing and harmonize. It’s like music was the first language of my life, and I feel that these songs are my chance to share this language that I love with the world.

 Jolene, Dolly Parton cover

I’ve been on stage performing and in recording studios for the past ten years, but this project is the first time I’m stepping out to put my name on something. It’s exhilarating, and nerve racking, but most of all it is life affirming. Writing and singing these songs makes me come alive; they connect me with the deepest parts of my heart and they bring me closer to the people I love. 

My hope is that, with your support, these songs will make their way into the world and give you and others the same gift they’ve given me. To make that happen I am raising $10,000 to cover recording, mixing, and production costs. I want to be proud of every part of this project, so I’m working with the best team I know. Casey Parnell is my brilliant producer and helped me write these songs, Keith Banning is a recording mastermind. He and i have been dreaming about this project for the last 5 years. I have a team made up of the best musicians local to Bend. I am confident the outcome will be a beautiful set of songs that stir a deep longing within you. 

So many genuine heartfelt thanks to you for joining me and allowing this to happen. I can’t wait to share these songs with you!
