MPress Records Releases Grace Pettis' Debut Single 'Landon' Press Release

Posted 19 May-2020 02:06 PM by Smith | 940

New York City indie label MPress Records has released Landon, the debut single by their latest signing, Grace Pettis. Pettis is an award-winning songwriter from Austin, Texas, who is a noted member of the South Austin scene. A little bit folk, a little bit country/Americana and with a whole lot of soul, Pettis has released two DIY albums and the Dallas Morning News has hailed her as "one of the most talented young singer-songwriters in America."

As premiered today by The Bluegrass SituationLandon is a true story-song written as an unabashed apology from the artist to her gay best friend for not being there when he came out. Deconstructing bias with each masterfully poetic lyric, Pettis puts her own youthful, "traditional" values under the microscope, and the result is a transcendently beautiful testament to the power of change, forgiveness, and the inner strength that comes from standing firm in who you are.

Pettis has been steadily garnering attention for several years. Her highly acclaimed, independently released records Grace Pettis (2009), Two Birds (2012), and the acoustic EP Blue Star in a Red Sky (2018) helped pave the way toward winning NPR's Mountain Stage New Song Contest, winning the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk Songwriting Contest, and landing her grants from the Buddy Holly Ed. Foundation. She is also a member (along with Rebecca Loebe and BettySoo) of the Americana/folk-pop trio Nobody's Girl, recently featured on NPR Music.

In lieu of tour dates this Spring, starting today, Pettis is performing a series of "Weekly Webcast" livestream concerts every Friday at 7:30 p.m.
