Anna Grace Beatty is a singer-songwriter based in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. She released her debut EP, “Burns You Up,” on October 12th, 2018. The EP features five songs, two of which were written solely by Beatty and three of which she co-wrote.
Beatty’s sound is a unique blend of Southern, pop, and rock elements, and has an Americana flair. She puts on a strong live show, whether she is playing solo or with her band. In the short time that she has been touring, she has had the opportunity to open for artists such as Larkin Poe, in Chattanooga, TN, and Noah Guthrie, in Charlotte, NC. While she is still currently touring, she is also back in the studio working on her second release.
“Burns You Up” is available on all online music services now. Catch her on tour across the Southeast in 2019 promoting her EP.
Born into a musical family, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist, Heather Taylor is creative to her core. Classically trained in flute, the now Asheville, NC native embraces the gritty soul of Appalachian folk music. Accompanied by her octave mandolin, Taylor draws elements of blues, americana, roots and rock into her songwriting.
After graduating from The Crane School of Music, Taylor’s musical path appeared to unravel. To remedy her indecisive future, she traveled to Ireland where she found an irish flute in a Dublin music shop. In a sweep of synchronicity, Taylor found herself playing flute in venues across Ireland and Scotland. Upon returning to the States with her musical fire reignited, Taylor experimented with new forms of musical expression; she began singing, playing mandolin and writing songs- ultimately becoming an Americana force in her hometown of Rochester, NY.
Shortly after moving to Asheville, Taylor won the Brown Bag Songwriting Competition with slide guitarist Sean Jerome and is now an emerging singer-songwriter in the Western North Carolina music scene. Her most recent record, “Undercurrents” was recorded at Echo Mountain Recording Studio and was released to a sold out room at the Isis Music Hall Lounge, August of 2018.
