New Music – Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
This seems to be a month for ladies with big……………..voices.
The latest is the great Grace Potter & The Nocturnals who are a Vermont-based band that gained attention in 2007 with their album, This Is Somewhere.
Their next, self-titled studio album was released on June 8, 2010.
The band blends funky blues, soul and rock from the 60s and early 70s as you can tell from this track from their new album.
The lead vocalist is 27-year-old multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter, who attended St. Lawrence University for two years before pursuing music professionally. She plays the Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer Electric Piano and electric and acoustic guitars.
The other members of the band are Scott Tournet, on guitars (including slide guitar) and harmonica, and drummer Matthew Burr. Bryan Dondero played bass guitar, upright bass, and mandolin with the group until his departure in early 2009.
They have since been joined by bassist Catherine Popper and rhythm guitarist Benny Yurco.
Here they are with a cover of a classic Jefferson Airplane track.
Their latest album peaked at #6 on iTunes Top 100 album and #2 on iTunes Rock Albums Chart. The opening track, “Paris (Ooh La La)”, and iTunes bonus track “Fooling Myself” was in the Top 40 and Top 100, respectively, on iTunes Rock Songs Chart.
