Something REALLY different for you here.... ! I admit these guys caught my attention initially because Tony is John Paul White's younger brother.... and John Paul White is/was part of my favourite ever duo The Civil Wars.. BUT! getting to know this duo - they and their music have grabbed me firmly in their own right..... Check this out....

You've got punk music in my bluegrass. You've got bluegrass in my punk music. Like Reese's peanut butter cups before them, Grace and Tony are a perfect blend of two great tastes that taste great together. Hailing, from Tennessee Grace Schultz Tony White could very well stand on their on two feet as solo artists, but they combine the lilting melodies and storytelling of bluegrass music with the fierce power of punk rock to electrifying results.

Their album November came out fittingly this past November via Kickstarter and it brings to mind that other dynamic folk duo The Civil Wars (It doesn't hurt that Tony's brother is John Paul White of The Civil Wars) And while that group may be on a permanent hiatus, Grace and Tony are more than capable to pick up the gauntlet that was thrown down. Their voices are the stars here, his pipes showcase a well-worn grit while hers are sweet and smooth. Apart they are great, but it's when they sing together that the listener is truly transported.

On tracks such as the mandolin toe-tapper, "Hey Grace, Hey Tony" they trade verses about how much they can't live without each other, and it's about as sweet and romantic as you can imagine with lines like, "Scooch right up beside me, peck me on my cheek, put your hand in my hand, baby just be sweet to me." And the the title track is musically dark and foreboding but the lyrics are full of the hope of finding that special someone. Again, the mixture of themes fits perfectly here.

Grace and Tony provide instantly enjoyable Americana music with a punk rock edge that will definitely make music fans, regardless of genre, sit up and take notice.

“Every so often I discover an artist, or maybe just an album, that cuts through my veneer of "I've heard everything and there is nothing new that is good out there". This fantastic album, "November" by Grace and Tony is one such album, and Grace and Tony are such artists.”

“Absolutely fantastic music with meaningful lyrics! They have a unique acoustic/vintage sound that is tricky to define, but as the genre would suggest, it mixes bluegrass/punk with folk. To me, I also hear some elements reminiscent of epic westerns and swing/rockabilly (minus the brass). Grace and Tony both offer great vocals and lovely harmonizing”

“This album is amazing. from all of the cr*p hitting the shelves all under their banner of "uniqueness" this album really shines through. the writing is amazing, the vocals are fantastic (especially Grace on La Carrera) and their talent is real. I am going to be following this band very closely.”

“Hope they make it BIG. Would love to hear this song on the radio.”

“Love this song as much as the others. A great addition to my Grace & Tony playlist! Can't wait to see them perform live AGAIN! So much fun and amazingly friendly people.”

“Fantastic stuff!!!! My favourite duo was The Civil Wars. In the process of searching the net, looking to see if John Paul White had any other projects going, I noticed him playing with Grace & Tony, so I checked them out separately. Little did I know Tony White is his younger brother! Damn, those White brothers have talent, along with their counterparts of course!”

“Genuine, original, engaging and new; that is the music created by two amazing musicians. I can't say enough. Bluegrass & Punk blended by your genius. I don't think this style could have worked if ever attempted by other artists. I doubt anyone would have thought of it! But, I'm so glad you did! “
