Marcy Grace is an up and coming singer/songwriter from San Antonio, Texas bringing fresh and new ideas to the Americana market. She is known for her big and unique voice. This Texas girl has been playing music for most of her life and is a multi-instrumentalist playing drums, guitar, keyboard, and banjo.
Her first single to radio, “I Wanna” reached #37 on the Texas Regional Radio Charts and was featured on the Texas Music Pickers Spotify chart & playlist. Marcy was also chosen to perform at the Texas Music Pickers Seminar Showcase for new and upcoming Texas artists. Her latest single “Country Livin’ 101” is also on its way up the charts.
After graduating high school, Marcy decided to pursue her career in music. She traveled to Nashville, Tennessee and played at places like The Bluebird Café, Douglas Corner, Two Old Hippies, Red Rooster, and Antique Archaeology. After meeting and networking with the songwriters of Nashville, Marcy came home to work on her Bachelor’s degree in Music Industry at the University of the Incarnate Word. She since has become a member of GrammyU and ASCAP.
In 2014, Marcy released her debut album Fireworks. She’s received praise from music journalist Hector Saldana, who wrote about the release of her album at the Hard Rock Café in San Antonio. Shortly after the release of her album, she was invited to sing at 3 Texas Recording Academy Grammy events. Marcy has opened up for Bart Crow, Sunny Sweeney, John Baumann, Two Tons of Steel, The Americans, and has also been invited to sing with Susan Gibson (Wide Open Spaces).
Marcy has also been an advocate for Any Baby Can foundation. She wrote “We Can” as ABC’s anthem song and will be releasing a recording soon.
Marcy is continuing to write and play with her band. She currently works as an assistant to Grammy Award winning engineer Marius Perron. She also recently graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word, Magna Cum Laude, with a degree in Music Industry.
The unique process that Americana group The Grahams employed in the writing of their debut album Riverman's Daughter resonated so well with the Nashville based band that they undertook a similar technique in the creation of new material, which will come together on their sophomore release on May 19, 2105.
With Riverman's Daughter The Grahams traveled the Mississippi-hugging Great River Road, winding up on a houseboat in the Louisiana swamp where their songs of the river came together. A similar process went into the writing of new material, except this time, instead of following the lazy river, The Grahams rode streamlined rails, jumping aboard almost all the Amtrak cars including the Adirondack Line, the Texas Eagle, and the Sunset Limited, crisscrossing the country as the America that informs their songs whizzed by.
“Our methodology is to follow the paths and revisit the places that inspired our predecessors, not because we want to imitate them or faithfully reproduce their work, but because we are looking for the modern echo of older sounds, and hope to give shape to these enduring reverberations. Nothing can serve that methodology better than riding the rails."
