Grammy-winner Marc Cohn has said of her music, “it’s rare to hear a young singer with such control and understated soulfulness, and even more rare to hear a harp provide such a deep percussive groove. I was immediately captivated by her sound.” Her innovative use of the harp, expressive vocals, and sophisticated but accessible songwriting prowess have earned her grants from the Thomas J. Watson Foundation and the U.S. State Department, a slew of awards, and the fervent support of her fans, who collectively funded Grassie’s third album, “The Hinterhaus,” produced by Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco, Anaïs Mitchell, Erin McKeown), released January 29th, 2013. Grassie graduated cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in 2009 with a degree in Comparative Literature. A natural storyteller, her music is often inspired by literary works and has been featured on radio, film, and television. She has performed across the United States, Canada, Russia, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, and France.
