Grace Potter

Feb. 8
7 p.m.
Indie Pop, Rock

Recent seismic changes—splitting from her husband and her band (the Nocturnals), remarrying, motherhood—were the genesis of Grace Potter’s current solo album, Daylight. Her lyrics are by far her most personal, baring her soul on confessionals whose raw emotions also elicit some of her most riveting vocals, especially on the spare, anguished gospel ballad “Release.” Pop infiltrations are minimal in favor of soulful Memphis flair, a sparkling countrypolitan ballad (“Repossession”), searing rockers (the Stones-like “On My Way”), and fresh passion that suggests a new dawn. Devon Gilfillian opens.
