Gracie Curran
Occasionally a vocalist comes along with such a presence that they command everyones undivided attention. Such is the case with Bostons Gracie Curran. There is nothing subtle in her booming big mama voice. Her band and the addition of a horn section match the soulful energy of her voice, hanging in and driving her along on their musical excursion. Taking a line sometimes trod by Etta, Janis, and Shemekia, Gracie Curran has a powerhouse vocal that drives a high pulse and drains the emotional bucket dry.

Currans influences include Billie Holiday and Sharon Jones, whose Dap Kings albums have a vibiness that sounds like they were made 50 years ago. She grew up on gospel and rock, singing in a church choir directed by her mother and listening to her fathers Allman Brothers records. As a result, Proof of Love possesses equal parts throwback soul and roadhouse swagger: Weight of Her World echoes Tupelo Honey-era Van Morrison, while Jack and Mary Jane is a straight-up rocker, and the sultry With Friends Like These is down- low blues worthy of Janis Joplin. She has appeared with big names like Shemekia Copeland and Monster Mike Welch; Welch returned the favor by sitting in with the High Falutin Band, as did Lydia Warren and Sax Gordon.
