Grace Pettis is an award-winning Nashville singer-songwriter, hailing from Alabama and Georgia, with Texas musical roots. Grace inked a publishing deal with BMG Music in 2019 and a record deal with MPress Records in 2020.
Produced by singer-songwriter Mary Bragg and mixed by 2x Grammy® award winner Shani Gandhi, Grace’s first album with MPress Records, Working Woman (2021), features an all-female/non-binary band. The rest of the album credits are female/non-binary as well: co-writers, engineers, photographer, and graphic designer included. Guest contributions come from Indigo Girls (“Landon”), Ruthie Foster (“Pick Me Up”), Dar Williams (“Any Kind of Girl”), The Watson Twins (“Never Get It Back”), Gina Chavez (“Mean Something”) and Mary Bragg (“Paper Boat”).
Grace is the winner of NPR’s Mountain Stage New Song Contest and is an ambassador for the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation. She’s also a member (with Rebecca Loebe and BettySoo) of the Austin-based Americana/folk-pop trio Nobody’s Girl.
American Songwriter writes, “As a decorated songwriter, Pettis blurs the lines between country, Americana and folk. Her soulful delivery of calculated lyric lines helps her tell stories for all generations.” Grace’s songs have been recorded by many artists, including Sara Hickman and Ruthie Foster.
