Grace Petrie

With a voice, a guitar and harmonica at hand Grace Petrie (UK) uses traditional tools for performing nontraditional music. This is uncommon music in the world today as we are bombarded by pointlessness. Petrie’s frustration over and passion for the world and her fellow human beings shines through in her lyrics.

“And yeah, it’s true God ain’t my thing
But if he was, I’d rather sing
For all of the refugees
Perishing in foreign seas
Those bodies washed up on the shores
Were fleeing our state-sponsored wars
And our leader sees nothing wrong
So I wrote him a brand new song”
