On Thursday 27th April, get ready for a kick-ass night of female empowerment and musical magic, as Grace Pettis performs her new debut album Working Woman at Durham’s Old Cinema Launderette. Comprised of an all-female/non-binary band and production/creative team, this album is bursting with talent and imagination.

The award-winning singer/songwriter takes musical influence from the vibrant Southern Sounds of the Deep South – specifically Atlanta, Georgia and Mentone, Alabama where she grew up. Having written songs since the age of 5, Grace has always expressed herself musically with constant support from her parents, a travelling songwriter (Pierce Pettis) and poetry scholar (Dr. Margaret Mills Harper). With mesmerising vocals and intricate musicianship, Grace’s new album perfectly showcases her skills.

Working Woman highlights the majestic female influence, with lyricism imagined through her own feelings and experiences. Featuring elements of folk, soul and country rock, the entire album will keep you hooked. It’s safe to say, this is a night you won’t want to miss.
