Grace Lougen is touring as guitar tech for Joan Baez on her "Fare Thee Well" Tour this year! On her nights off, she will be playing a few shows with Joan's back-up singer, Grace Stumberg! More information on gigs can be found under "Shows" tab.
Grace is featured on the 1st Billboard for The Buffalo Blues Project to benefit homeless veterans! Grace has recorded on two compilation albums for this project and played many benefit shows across WNY. All proceeds go to WNY Housing Coalition to benefit our veterans in need.
Grace's current project, Freightrain (led by Robert Freightrain Parker,) just released their first all-original studio album! “Outside Ourselves” is equal parts soul and funk, blues and roots; an all-original build on “Freightrain Live,” their debut album that brought the band into the spotlight both nationally and abroad. The title track is a choral anthem, with lyrics written by Grace, bearing the message that we must "Be the change" that we wish to see in this world. Each of the original songs on “Outside Ourselves” is unique, showcasing the band’s broad musical influences and pushing the boundaries of their blues beginnings.
