Grace Potter and the Nocturnals is a young, Vermont based band impacting audiences with timeless, original music. Their creative blend of roots, funky blues, gospel, and rock conjures up a nostalgic sound most likely found in a record collection from the sixties and early seventies.
The band is led by twenty-two year old phenom Grace Potter, whose vocal ability has drawn comparisons to legends like Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, and Janis Joplin. Her unique style behind the Hammond B-3 and piano is captivating audiences across the country. Joining Potter is Scott Tournet (guitar/slide guitar), Matthew Burr (drums/percussion), and Bryan Dondero (upright/electric bass).
The band's new album "Nothing But The Water" builds on 2004's scorching debut "Original Soul", which was well received in national newspapers and magazines and has sold over 5,000 copies indpendently since it's release last march. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are currently touring in promotion of "Nothing But The Water," their powerful sophomore album filled with soul-charged roots, blues and rock - touring with the Dave Matthews Band, Taj Mahal, Trey, and the John Butler Trio.
