Episode 44: Grace Weber
Air date: 5.9.2012
Brooklyn, New York-based singer and songwriter Grace Weber is living the dream of many a young girl from countless small towns who dream of making a big noise in the big city. She has come a long way since she joined Inner City Youth Gospel Choir in her hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the tender age of ten. Weber has earned her way with a work ethic commonly found in people with Midwestern roots. With talent and tenacity Weber has racked up an impressive list of credits and a growing legion of fans. She has made appearances on NPR's Mountain Stage and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and even managed to get a song on Starbuck's playlist, which can be found in rotation in the coffee behemoth's 10,000-plus locations in the U.S. Weber's debut album, Hope and Heart, is filled with bouncy, soulful songs with some vocal shades reminiscent of smoky throwback female singers like Adele and Joss Stone.
