INFO: Coming from a musically eclectic family gave Grace a launching pad into the world of all things melodic and whimsical. She grew up singing Beatles songs on her father's lap, and listening to him endlessly tap out melodies on an old piano until she drifted to sleep. She took up the mandolin after her first heartbreak, and the ukulele after her second, finding strange beauty in the melancholy nature of brokenness. After a few years of writing songs and melodies she began to play occasional shows for small audiences. In the fall of 2009 she signed onto Whale Heart Records, the home of Pacific Theater, Duchess Leo, and Little Horn. Tall Shoulders is her first EP.
