Track Premiere: Atlanta’s Good Graces (+ Album Release Party)

Good Graces 1

Kim Ware & Co. deliver the indie-folk goods…

Our friends at Fort Lowell Records are hosting a special showcase show in Atlanta at Steve’s Live Music this coming Friday (11/21) for the official vinyl LP release party for Atlanta’s Good Graces’ new album Close to the Sun. It’ll feature labelmate (and erstwhile Tucson singer-songwriter, she of no small acclaim) Tracy Shedd, who we’ve enthused about at this publication in the past. We are ready to unveil a new Good Graces track for you right here – it’s titled “Cold in California,” but it just might warm you up in Carolina:

Some details: The Good Graces is an indie-folk collective based in Atlanta, GA. Formed by singer-songwriter Kim Ware in 2006, the band’s third full-length album Close to the Sun is a diverse collection of catchy songs exploring a variety of styles and genres, from folk and alt. country to 90s-inspired indie pop. The band performed at this year’s NXNE in Toronto, and Kim’s song “Under the Weather” recently won the “Searchlight” indie song competition from “In Search of a Song,” a national radio series that interviews world class artists about songwriting.

On September 30th the album was officially available through all digital outlets, such as iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, etc.  Then, on October 28th, the limited vinyl release was made available for everyone. “Close to the Sun is a brilliant collection of acoustic-led tunes across a number of genres.  [Kim] Ware has done an incredible job pulling together genre-subverting arrangements and lyrics with beautiful vocals, resulting in an album that is hard to stop listening to.” ~ Independent Clauses
