“One of the greatest living voices in rock today has returned for a well-deserved moment in the spotlight.” – SPIN
“..her first solo album Midnight, pop rock gets a real kick in the cherry-red pants….With its songs about sex and dancing, self-confidence and risk, Midnight is a mid-career turn for Potter that proves genuinely freeing.” – NPR Music

Heralded as one of today’s best live performers, Grace Potter has played every major music festival – from Coachella to Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo – and is excited to hit the road again this summer for over forty exciting dates. Associated with many artists that exude a soulful rock sound, Potter has previously had the honor of sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones, Robert Plant, the Allman Brothers, Neil Young, Mavis Staples, Kenny Chesney, The Flaming Lips, and The Roots, to name just a few.

Last August, Potter released Midnight, her solo album debut. The record was recorded and mixed at Barefoot Studios in Hollywood with producer Eric Valentine, whose own diverse discography-from Queens of the Stone Age to Nickel Creek-evidences an adventurous spirit and openness to possibility. If Valentine’s studio work has a distinguishing characteristic, it’s his hard-hitting sonic signature, which is on display throughout Midnight’s dozen tracks.

“This music means so much to me because it was hard-won,” Potter explained. It was a terrifying yet fulfilling process of boiling down what I really wanted to say – peeling back all the protective layers of lyrical metaphor and sonic padding that I’m so used to leaning on. Ultimately the process has fueled me to share more, learn more, listen carefully, work harder, love harder… Our time on Earth is far too short to be resistant to beautiful opportunities as they come our way, so when my inspiration took me somewhere new, I did what I always do: stripped buck-ass naked and ran straight into the fire.”
