Just Gracey is a Mother/son duo consisting of the singer songwriter/author Olivia Gracey and her sixteen year old son Ty Gracey. They began their journey as a team four years ago in Nashville performing at a songwriters fest. Their song "Monkenshine" has quickly become a favorite with rising request. They released their first demo album in 2014 with a studio video of "Monkenshine".
Olivia is the Mother half of Just Gracey. She has been writing songs since she was young being heavily influenced by her very active country music family. Her Mom and Dad were set in Nashville when Olivia was a child with her mother writing for Acuff/Rose and her Dad played lead in her mother's band as they toured the country sharing their music. Even though Country music has always been a big part of Olivia's life she tends to lean more toward the folk and pop genres. When she penned the song "Something" it reawakened her love for songwriting and opened the doors to her creative style. Her passion for writing has since flourished into her new authorship as she pens fiction novels in her spare time.
Ty Gracey is a junior in high school and AP student that excels in anything he attempts. He has a passion for playing and composing music that far outweighs most all of his classmates. At the age of nine, Ty sung Folsom Prison Blues in a talent show for his grade school. With his ease in front of a crowd and loving personification of Johnny Cash, he stole the hearts of students and faculty. Soon after, Ty began learning every song he could by ear on his guitar. He joined his Mom on stage when he was twelve at a songwriters festival in Nashville. By the second show he was hooked and longed to do it again. Ty took lessons to up his level of knowledge of playing his guitar and joined choir to develop his vocals. He has since become one with his favorite guitar, as well as mastered the skills of his Electric guitar, Ukulele, Banjo, Piano, and Cajon. He now gives lessons to those as hungry for creating music as he is. He is the other half of JUST GRACEY that is always going above and beyond to learn new music to share. And never seizes to amaze his Mom.
Muddle Muddle Mess was their first composed song they crafted together. Since then they have crafted many more including "For the Last Time", "I Believe", "What the Good Lord Gave You", and "Riding Shotgun". Olivia gets sassy in her songwriting as in "Not a Lady to Some" or "Drink Until hes Ugly" but Ty brings a Jazz style in just to throw off the genre with "Wishmaker". They have auditioned for The Blue Bird and The Voice. They play venues in Nashville, Alabama and travel out west to Oklahoma playing in festivals and charity events. This family duo continues to drive the interstate to share their music. They play with passion. Their music is joyful. Its heartfelt. Its unique. As Olivia calls it Its a mix of an "Old Chic and a New Generation." The diversity of this duo keeps you engaged and makes it hard to pick a favorite when you hear them play.
