Biography

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are like a modern-day version of Tina Turner stroking the microphone in a spangled mini-dress while fronting the Rolling Stones circa Sticky Fingers. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s third album for Hollywood Records, hitting this spring, and marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

What distinguishes Vermont's Grace Potter from the recent run of the female singer-songwriter mill is her affinity for anthems and a powerhouse band that can deliver the goods. Though quieter fare such as "You May See Me" and "Lose Some Time" finds one foot in folk music, her heart is plainly with hard-charging rockers such as the opening "Ah Mary," the melodic propulsion of "Ain't No Time," and the supercharged kick of "Mastermind." Ballads such as "Apologies" and "Falling or Flying" show her soulful side, while the sexually assertive road song "Stop the Bus" provides further indication of her range. The closing "Big White Gate" sounds like a gospel cousin of John Prine's "Angel from Montgomery." --Don McLeese

Product Description

The pride of Vermont, Boston Music Award and Jammie winners Grace Potter and the Nocturals return with their first full-fledged Hollywood Records album This Is Somewhere. Renowned for their fervent and substantial nationwide touring base, GP&TN wowed the crowds at Bonaroo in 2006, and at the 2007 SxSW convention. 2007 has already brought #1 Most Added status at AAA (the already charting first single is Ah Mary ), key TV exposure on Grey's Anatomy and American Idol, an ecstatically received, high profile appearance at SxSW and more touring. High profile dates include headlining venues as large as 4,000 seats, plus select co-headlining and special guest appearances. Upcoming highlights include already confirmed appearances street-week on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Craig Ferguson's Late, Late Show. Check out www.gracepotter.com for the latest updates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid outing from an evolving band August 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what people expect here, but this is a solid outing from an EVOLVING band. As usual Grace Potter and the Nocturnals deliver the real deal. Whereas the first two discs range from easy listening to folkish/blues material, this disc brings the rock that is so missing in today's corporate driven music scene. Grace opens with "Ah Mary" a political song that doesn't sound so political until towards the end where she makes the comparison from "Ah Mary" to "America". Good production, obviously more written to be one of the singles. "Stop The Bus" is a pure rocker from the get go, with hooks from guitarist Scott Tournet that still gives me chills. She slows down on the next song "Apologies" ,that is more like songs off NBTW and her first effort Original Soul. "Ain't No Time" and "Mr. Columbus" come next and ease us back in Grace-fully to the ramped up rockers. After these two pulse lifting numbers, it's back to the bluesy soul of "Lose Some Time" and "You May See Me" that again populates the majority of the first two releases. For me it's the last four cuts off this release that makes this disc a treat to listen to over and over. "Mastermind", "Here's to the Meantime", "Falling or Flying" and "Big White Gate". I have listened to it at least once a day since it's release, and it's still in heavy rotation. "Mastermind" with it's piano opening, morphs into a power rocking pop number that is relentless. Then they don't let up with "Here's to the Meantime" with it's catchy ryhmes and hooks o' plenty. Once we hit the last two closing songs, the first being "Falling Or Flying", which IMHO is the best song on the disc. Such poignant lyrics from someone who is in her twenties. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars SOMEWHERE IS SOMEWHERE ELSE August 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I had been waiting for GP&tN follow up since I stumbled across their brilliant and not overly publicized debut some 9 months ago. 'Nothing But The Water' is simply phenomenal. A pure and raw mix of blues, gospel, folk and soul with a voice that has given me goosbumps like nothing in recent memory.

So I didn't walk, I ran to the local independent record store to grab 'This is Somewhere' the moment it came out. Didn't even bother trying to listen to it first. I knew it would be good.

And it is, but don't look to this for the same acoustic, mellow, laid back, soulfull voice dominated tunes that made the first CD what it was. This is an up tempo-guitar heavy, finely produced, polished edges piece that plays in direct contrast with their previous work. This takes up where 'Joey' (on the NBW) left off. New ground is definately being broken here which is always good. And the tunes are full of passion with some catchy riffs and hard melodies but do not look for songs like 'Nothing But the Water part 2' or 'Ragged Company' (the real standouts for me on their debut) on this outing. Which is quite unfortunate.

I'm sure this will grow on me over the next few listens and I'm not going to criticize a band for going in new directions but first impressions is 'where is the soul that set this band apart from everyone else?' Where is the Hammond organ? Where are the slow tempos? More often than not, Grace's voice exhibits anger with hints of rage at times. It is this volume, almost screaming here and there, along with an overly dominating drum kit that that keeps an innocent, heartfelt and peaceful relaxed demenaor from coming across as beautifully on this endeavor.

Apparently GP&tN were out to rock this time and their producer was going to see to it that they did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent second album June 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Grace Potter has been carving out a very nice place in the singer/songwriter blues/rock/jam scene, and with her band The Nocturnals she has become a staple on many music festivals (more on that later).

"This Is Something" (2007 release; 11 tracks; 49 min.) is a great second album of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals after their 2006 debut album "Nothing But the Water". The album kicks off great with "Ah Mary" (which was released as a single), and "Stop the Bus" follows it with equal rocking-socking sounds. The bests tracks of the album are stacked in the first half, with a beautiful ballad "Apologies", the immediately catchy "Mr. Columbus" (another single candidate) and the pensive "You May See Me". The second half of the album falters a bit, but still contains a couple of great sons such as "Mastermind" and the closer "Big White Gate".

In all, this is quite an engaging album. Hard to believe that Grace is still only 25 yrs. old as she sounds a lot more mature than that. I had the good fortune of seeing Grace Potter and the Nocturnals last weekend at Bonnaroo and they put on a tremendous set that was very well received by the huge crowd. Can't wait to see where this band will go next (a new album should be arriving not too long from now, I think).

5.0 out of 5 stars It just gets better & better August 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Like fine wine, this Vermont-based group just keeps getting better & better with every album that they release. Grace Potter & The Nocturnals do the type of rock music that classic rock bands used to do, before that dreaded instrument called the synthesizer turned all that great stuff into lameo, dead-sounding tech pop (ZZ Top, are you listening?) This band is, definately, going places! You'll get your money's worth when you buy this album!
