Gracie Day is 2017's "Best New Act" according to the New England Music Awards, an organization that acknowledges musical artists across all six states. Based in Hartford, and recently named "Best Folk Band" in CTNow's Best of Hartford Reader's Poll for 2017, Gracie Day is gaining a reputation for her authentic performances and heartfelt storytelling which is highlighted by melodic sensibility and dynamic sound.
The genre "Folk", though a large influence on Day's lyric writing, doesn't quite describe the mixture of rock, soul and country her band has. Her debut E.P released in November 2017, and another record is anticipated for 2018.
Gracie will be performing at the Packing House with her talented guitar player, Lee Sylvestre who adds beautiful musical dynamics and harmonies.
