New Music Monday: Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

It has recently become my firm belief that Grace Potter is the definition of a BAMF.

Yes, I went there. Sorry, Mom (Actually, as far as I know, my mom thinks BAMF stands for Butterscotch and Marshmallow Fudge…Hint: It doesn’t).

But how else can you describe the incredible front-woman of the Vermont-based, folk-rock band, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals?


Just take a listen to the single Paris (Ooh La La) (musically inspired by The Kinks) off their self-titled album, and you will see what I mean.

Listen to some of their songs from their first two albums, This is Somewhere and Nothing But the Water, which were drawn more from the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and The Band, and you will appreciate the subtlety of her bada**-ness.

And how can you not love a girl that can do a killer version of Fly Me to the Moon?

Or says something like this:

“We were a homegrown Vermont band for five years. Now we’re a national act that does not want to be f*cked with.” – Grace Potter

If you like rock music with some folk and blues woven through, or if you can appreciate a great rocker-chick with an incredible band, then you should, without a doubt, check out Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.

Yes, siree.
