Grace Potter got her start in 2002 as a self-produced indie artist. The band started off playing the jam band music circuit and they were playing as many as 200 shows a year in order to build their fan base. The band signed with Hollywood Records in 2005 and since then, have gained momentum. Grace Potter had a major country hit with Kenny Chesney in 2011 — “You and Tequila” — toured with Chesney on the Brothers of the Sun Tour in 2012 and played Farm Aid that same year. They also opened for Dave Matthews Band  on a few tour dates in 2013 and the Rolling Stones in June 2015 including joining them on stage for a rocking rendition of “Gimme Shelter.”

Grace Potter’s shows have often been described as powerful, sultry and intense. She embodies the spirit of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner and Koko Taylor with a bit of Stevie Nicks mixed in. She is currently on tour in anticipation of her upcoming release Midnight which is available for pre-order now and will be released on Aug. 14, 2015.

Grace Potter will be making a stop at CMAC Saturday August 2 with doors at 6:30pm and show starting promptly at 7:30pm.
