BIO

"Gracie is a winsome young artist with the professionalism of a seasoned writer and performer. The only thing greater than her talent is the humility with which she maximizes it." – Charlie Peacock

Singer/songwriter Gracie Schram is already a veteran of the music industry. Since releasing her debut album at the age of 10, Gracie has continued to create and record music while developing her signature indie-pop sound that combines soulful vocals with subtle but powerful acoustics and soaring harmonies.

Her latest EP, entitled Dear Fall released September 2016 and features collaborations with producers Rick Seibold and Brad Corrigan (Dispatch). With wistful, achingly beautiful melodies, Gracie explores a new vulnerability as she sings of “stepping out from behind my shadow” in Walls and discovers the freedom of love and partnership in Anywhere You Go.

Dear Fall is just the latest in Gracie’s illustrious music career which includes opening on tour for David Archuleta, as well as performing other opening acts for Ingrid Michaelson, Lauren Alaina and Crystal Bowersox. In addition to playing at numerous music festivals including SXSW, CMA Fest, Middle of the Map Fest, and Summerfest, Gracie was also a Featured Fridays Artist-In-Residence at the historic Hotel Phillips in her hometown of Kansas City. She has performed the national anthem at NFL, MLB, NASCAR and MLS games including all of her favorite KC teams. Always ready with her guitar, Gracie has even performed on Southwest Airlines flights. Her original CD, I Am Me was produced by Grammy-award winner Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, Kris Allen, Lone Bellow, Switchfoot) and released in 2015 while Gracie was still in high school.

But what sets Gracie apart isn’t just her youth, talent, and style – it’s her incredible sense of purpose. Ever since her debut album, Showers from God, a portion of the proceeds from Gracie’s music is given to humanitarian causes amounting to more than $40,000 to date. It is her hope that her songs and her story will empower people to make a positive change in the world around them.

“I want people who hear my music to know that when you are your own true self, you can make a difference.”
