Delbert McClinton remarked “the first time I heard Seth Walker at a small club in Nashville I was impressed like I haven’t been impressed in 30 years, with performance, presence, and great songs.”

 

GRACE PETTIS/SARA DOUGA

In her short career, Alabama songwriter Grace Pettis has amassed bragging rights to spare. She is the winner of many of the nation’s most prestigious songwriting contests, including Kerrville New Folk Contest and NPR’s Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, where she also took “best song” honors. Last summer, she received a grant from the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, enabling her to attend the Chris Difford Songwriting Retreat and to co-write new songs with award-winning, chart-topping songwriters.

Grace’s self-released, fan-funded studio albums have garnered praise from critics, fans, and industry alike. Maverick Magazine enthusiastically endorsed her latest release, saying, “If you only buy one album this year, Two Birds is it!” Sirius XM Program Director, Mary Sue Twohy described Grace’s distinct, unaffected voice as a “wide open prairie, full of waving golden grains before menacing, dark thunderclouds.”

Grace’s songs have been recorded by other esteemed artists, including former State Musician of Texas Sara Hickman and three-time Grammy-nominated blues artist Ruthie Foster. Ruthie Foster covered two of Grace’s songs on her spring 2017 release, “Joy Comes Back.”

Pettis is currently planning the release of her third studio album, “A Little Noise,” produced by Dan Barrett. She plays regularly with her band in Austin (Calloway Ritch on lead guitar, Kurt Rivett on bass, and Ryan Neubauer on drums) when she’s not on the road.

Grace has also recently teamed up with award-winning performing songwriters BettySoo and Rebecca Loebe to form Nobody’s Girl . Nobody’s Girl embarks on a debut 20-city national tour in April of this year. The fledgling group has already been signed by Lucky Hound Music. An EP featuring original songs, produced by Michael Ramos, is expected this spring or fall. (www.nobodysgirlmusic.com)

SARA DOUGA

Hailing from Southwest Louisiana, Sara’s roots lie in Classic Country, Texas Country, and Bluegrass – the result is a modern take on a timeless sound.

Sara’s influence comes from the greats before her like Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Alison Kruass; her own  lessons learned the hard way, and the cowboy culture and wildlife that filled the lands of her upbringing.

Sara finds a way to unite all of her passions; having studied Wildlife Management and since become a published wildlife biologist, a wife, and a mother of two. She is also a featured woman of offshore fishing in publications such as The Houston Chronicle and Texas Saltwater Fishing Magazine.

Sara’s first paid singing gig was at a prestigious hunting club called, The Marsh Club: “I would work the shooting range during the day and at night I would clean up, then play my songs for the guests – it was so much fun!”

Sara’s co-writing career started out with hit songwriter Gordon Bradberry and she has since worked with a roll call of the very best – including Beth Nielsen Chapman, Roddie Romero, Peter Case, Louise Goffin, Guy Fletcher, Bill Lloyd, Gary Burr and Jim Lauderdale.
