Artists we play: Gracie And Rachel

Gracie And Rachel at Fanwood Performance Series

Live shows are always the best way to discover an artist. We caught another one in our home state of New Jersey recently (part of the Fanwood Performance Series) and had the pleasure of hearing and meeting Gracie And Rachel.

With Gracie on piano lead vocals and Rachel on violin and vocals, this duo creates "orchestral pop" music that's both lovely and intense. As their website says, their songs deal with "questioning realities, anxious introspection, and self-exploration" - and they convey those themes through the tension and energy in their playing as much as through their lyrics.

We've added two songs from their forthcoming album - the title track, "Go," and "Tiptoe" -- to the Marvelous Mix on Birch Street Radio.

Originally from Berkeley, Calif., Gracie And Rachel are now based in Brooklyn. They've toured on their own and with artists such as Julien Baker, Holly Miranda and Emmy The Great, and have a show this week (Thursday, April 14) at The Gateway in Brooklyn. See more at www.gracieandrachel.com
