Gracie Curran and the High Falutin' Band! / Bio

Garnering comparisons to greats such as Aretha Franklin and Etta James,
Gracie Curran & Her High Falutin' Band have earned their reputation for jaw dropping blues & soul.

2013 was a breakout year for The High Falutin' Band, earning a nomination Best New Artist in the 2014 Blues Music Awards along with nominations for Best Blues Act for the 2013 Boston Music Awards, and Best Blues Act for the 2014 New England Music Awards.
In addition to these honors, they've been listed as one of the Top 30 Roots/Soul Acts along with Sharon Jones The Dap Kings and Alabama Shakes, and Gracie included on the list of the Top 30 Vocalists with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, and more by Alternate Root Magazine.
In just four years, they have won over audiences across the US, playing to packed houses up and down the East Coast. They have shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, Shemekia Copeland, Roomful of Blues, Sax Gordon, Mike Welch, John Nemeth and Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters).
Their debut album "Proof of Love" received critical acclaim, continues to gather rave reviews from around the world, and can be heard on XM Bluesville and radio stations throughout the United States, and in England, Australia, Ireland, Belgium, Spain and more. Gracie called upon veteran producer Richard Rosenblatt to co-produce and play harmonica, and the album features horn players Mark Earley and Doug Woolverton of the legendary Roomful of Blues, and stalwart keys player Bruce Bears of The Duke Robillard Band.
With appearances at The Gloucester Blues Festival, New England Blues Festival, and The Boston Freedom Rally with more than 50,000 attendees,
