About Grace Askew
A sixth-generation Memphian, Grace Askew is a rising young talent who seamlessly melds blues, soul, folk, alt-country, and a New Orleans sound into a husky, soulful melange.
After a star turn on The Voice a few years ago, Grace toured relentlessly around the country, developing a large fan base and an increasingly mesmerizing stage presence. Her latest album, Scaredy Cat, received glowing reviews and landed on numerous Top 10 lists.
Growing up to the songs of Joni Mitchell, The Allman Brothers, Cat Power, and Al Green, studying under a jazz/bossa nova guitar teacher throughout high school, and living in New Orleans for over a year, Grace's sound has developed into a unique blend that is very Memphis. As the millions of people who cheered for her on The Voice learned, she calls it "bluntry" — a unique mix of blues and country.
Grace Askew performs as a solo artist, as a duo, and with a full band.
