Grace Love & The Dirty Church
Grace Love & The Dirty Church
Grace has been performing professionally for 10 years now and grew up watching her mother sing in the church choir in Memphis. She knew she had an affinity for performing when at just four years old she was asked to sing “This Little Light of Mine” in front of the congregation. As she grew older she realized her inspiration no longer came solely from the church, but from soul and rock and roll artists like Ray Charles. “There’s sound and inspiration all over if you are quiet enough” while listening to all the sounds within the space. Sometimes she’ll use the creaks and groans of the apartment to find inspiration for melodies. Her voice is unique indeed. While still among the greats like Etta James and Mahalia Jackson, Grace presses the bounds of conventional crooning, altering her voice from low and gravely to bright and gospel-like within the same breath and we are proud she accepted to join the Cannonball Collective in a project which is not only a bunch of releases on vinyl but also live sets, lyrics writing and more. Welcome home Grace!
Carlene Crawford & The City Lights
Carlene Crawford & The City Lights
Based out of Seattle, WA, indie-pop band Carlene Crawford & The City Lights, often pulls from nostalgic 80’s electric guitar and jazz piano influences. Lead singer/keyboardist Carlene started journaling at a young age which has made a big impact on the way she writes; simple, truthful, and to the point. She moved back to the Pacific Northwest after releasing EP New Ground (June 2016) in San Diego. In crossing paths at an open mic in Fremont, her original songs evolved with the creative influences of drummer Chris D’Abreau, guitarist Levi Jess and bassist Dan Ryan.
