Grace Askew (pronounced “ask-you”), is an incessant songwriter. Since January 1, 2018, she has written a new song every day and performed it on her social media pages.

She maintains this while also continuing to tour across the country, alone, in her Ford F350 diesel truck (“Wanda”) and recording new material in whatever spaces she can find to setup her microphone….motel stairwells, back seat of her truck, friends’ guest bedrooms.

Her mantra “creativity is a muscle; dare to suck” epitomizes her endeavors, as she explores and pushes the limits of her muse.

Grace was a contestant on Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice (Team Blake Shelton/Sheryl Crow). She has won numerous songwriting awards, including Unsigned Only (First Place, Americana), the International Songwriting Contest, and the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize). PBS also continues to air her full-band performance on the show Sun Sessions all over the globe.

Her musical influences include Cat Power, Jeff Buckley, and Tom Waits. Grace has been given the honor of touring with some of her musical heroes as well, including: T-Model Ford, James McMurtry, Leon Russell, Ray Wiley Hubbard, Colter Wall, Lisa Marie Presley, Hayes Carll, and Marty Stuart.
