Vermont-based singer/songwriter Grace Potter developed a following on the jam-band circuit. However, with each new album she's found a variety of methods to spotlight her powerful vocal abilities. Producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tedeschi Trucks Band) creates an interesting mix of settings, and Potter takes full advantage of them, reveling in the chance to be a hard rock singer, a pop singer, a country artist, and many variations in between. Unlike many artists who find one sound and stick with it for fear of being called inconsistent, Potter proudly tries on styles with abundant enthusiasm. Her talents are worth it. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach cowrote the album's first single, "Never Go Back," with the band and cowrote and produced "Loneliest Soul," so it sounds like The Nocturnals playing around at being The Black Keys. "Stars" showcases Potter pulling off a power ballad. "Parachute Heart" evokes a pop feel worthy of Neko Case. "The Divide" percolates until the guitars and strings send the track over the top. The album's deluxe edition includes four bonus cuts, including duets with Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson.
GPN is a fresh rock n' roll band!
Through their library, you can tell that GPN not only love what they do, they love the history of music paying tribute to many of the greats. Add in Grace Potter's amazingly talented voice plus their professional musicianship and you have one solid record! If you like rock n' roll, buy it now - you won't be disappointed. They've just rocketed to the top of my favourite bands.
I appreciate their efforts on stage as well - chalk full of energy! Fantastic live. A great band!
In a time where everything sounds extremely generic and electronic based, this album is a breath of fresh air. Every song is worth a download. I recommend this band to anyone!
"The Lion The Beast The Beat" introduces the album very well with its gradual pace in the beginning and builds up to a hard rock sound that totally complements Grace Potter's edgy yet soothing voice. This is the first song on my workout playlist since it gets your heart pumping. The rest of the album is amazing and definitely worth listening to! Also recommend "Stars" and "Timekeeper"
