“I don’t often present artists I knew before they were born, but Grace Pettis, one of the foremost young singer-songwriters today, proves the exception. Exceptional frequently applies to Grace Pettis, whose parents lived in Chapel Hill in the 1980s when her father Pierce’s career as an important singer-songwriter was taking flight. Mom lives in Ireland; dad sometimes performs with his daughter, who won the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest in 2009 and the Kerrville New Folk Contest in 2011 and was an Official Showcase Artist at the 2012 New Music Seminar. Grace’s sophomore effort Two Birdsearned rave reviews. ‘If you purchase only one album this year, Two Birds is absolutely it!’ wrote Arthur Wood in UK’s Maverick Magazine. Her singing or songwriting have already gained comparisons to Ronstadt, Bonoff, and Beth Nielsen Chapman.” -Art Menius, Executive Director at The ArtsCenter
