[jump] Drawing inspiration from artists like Adele and Norah Jones, Grace embodies the Midwestern work ethics with her unique bluesy aesthetic to come up with her exceptional sound. With the shift in the music industry, Weber quickly caught on to the DIY model, designing her own merch and finding new and creative to get her music to her fans. Social networking has been a double-edged sword, "It's been tough to just live in the moment, because as I'm getting on stage I have to remember, 'Oh yeah, I have to snap a picture of myself backstage, then tweet about it.' Sometimes you have to find that fine line between your personal life and your stage persona."
Along with her hard work, Grace is modest enough to know that she can't do it all herself. "I like to build a team of people around me; people that I can trust. Even if I do everything myself, there comes a point where I just hit a wall, and that's when you need those people to be your catalyst."
Minnesota may lay claim to being the most hipster state in the nation, but Brooklyn has the highest concentration. "When people hear that I lived in New York, they say I must have a lot of fashion sense. I didn't feel like I had to step up my game until I moved to Brooklyn! Everyone has so much style."
From her website:
Grace has already done two tours around the country, and dates supporting the fall release of "Hope & Heart" are being scheduled, kicking off in the NYC area and the Midwest.
