New Gracious Me folk/Americana album "True to Life" coming on all platforms in early 2020!

Welcome to the home of Gracious Me on the web!  Gracious Me is an award-winning songwriter who writes and sings southern-inflected, female-perspective literary Americana songs.  Soulful, powerful singing, thoughtful lyrics, and memorable melodies all serve the message of Gracious Me's songs.  Most recently, Gracious Me was a 2019 South Florida Folk Fest Songwriting Competition finalist, and her original song "The Battle's Not Over" was named a finalist in the 2019 Rapunzel's 17th Annual Songwriting Contest.  Gracious Me and the Ingrates is the collective expression of Gracious Me songs and a few tasteful covers, so come see us at one of our duo or band performances.  The new Gracious Me album, "True to Life", will be released in early 2020!  You can also pick up the debut EP, "Introducing . . . Gracious Me" right here on the website under MUSIC, in hard copy at CD Baby, downloads from iTunes and Amazon, and streaming on Spotify and elsewhere.  Thanks for stopping by!
