Gracie Curran & The High Falutin' Band at Darwin’s
Saturday Night, October 4th
2014 Blues Music Award Nominee for Best New Artist for their debut release Proof of Love.
www.graciecurran.com

"Can I get an AMEN! Their debut album, Proof of Love, tears open your chest and breathes into your soul with a baptism of raw power and emotion. A five-alarm stew of blues, gospel and soul that burns in your gut like the first time you heard Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved A Man". Pass the cool water, please."
- Bill Hurley, Alternate Root Magazine

"Proof of Love: Quite a stunning effort for their initial release. Elements of soul, blues, gospel and funk coalesce to create a moving and heartfelt experience that should no doubt lead to a successful and ever-growing career. All the pieces fitwell-crafted band-originals, razor-sharp production and skilled musicianship all giving a rock-solid foundation to the powerhouse that is Gracie Curran. Talent as seen here deserves to be heard. With the right exposure this band should have no trouble in attaining the success that they truly deserve."
- Greg Szalony Blues Blast Magazine
