Jerry Lindqvistin uutuudella bändi pääsee esiin. (Kuva: )

Pari vuotta sitten Jerry Lindqvist julkaisi komean Rivertown-levyn. Vahvasti perinnetietoista americanaa hengittänyt levy sai jatkoa lokukauussa, kun Lindqvist julkaisi The Grace-kokoonpanon kanssa Homegrown Soul -levyn.
Vaikka uusi levy eroaa melko selvästikin Rivertownista, perusasiat ovat tutut. Esimerkiksi Townes Van Zandtin ja Ryan Adamsin ystäviin Lindqvistinkin musiikin luulisi purevan.
Kantria ja americanaa sykkivä levy ei, kliseisesti ilmaistuna, kuulosta lainkaan suomalaiselta. Tämä ei ole ihme. Kun vaihtoehtokantrilla ei edelleenkään ole suuren suuria markkinoita Suomessa, pitää suunnata rohkeasti ulkomaille. Vaikka soittajat uudella levyllä ovatkin suomalaisia, on Lindqvist aiemmin tehnyt yhteistyötä muun muassa Paul Oxleyn kanssa.
Kuten levyn kannestakin käy ilmi, on Homegrown Soul edeltäjäänsä enemmän koko bändin voimin tehty...

...Aight folks, that's all for now.
Welcome out to the shows this week!

Thank you Stockholm

By Stefan Zimmerman

Hey friends!

I had a couple of lovely Sthlm shows at Noels and at Klubb Springfield. Thank you all for your support! I will be back with the whole Grace band in the fall if not earlier. Our show at Fotografiska on August 31st has been rescheduled for October 12th. Sorry for any inconvenience!

We have been working hard on the new album with The Grace and we will start mixing it soon. The album has been recorded in several studios in Stockholm, Turku and Vaasa and we're excited about releasing it in the fall of 2013. It's a cool mixture of Americana, Classic Rock and modern Blues and I'm sure you all will love it :-)

Me and Oskar played some of the new songs in Stockholm. Here's a video from Noels featuring the new tune called Sleeping With Trouble and our live favorite Prohibition Blues...

Jerry and Oskar live at Noels on March 6th

Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming album and new tour dates!
