Three-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Grace Potter heads to The Clyde Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. in support of her album, Mother Road.

The bluesy, roots rock specialist with a powerful voice has become one of the most admired live performers in contemporary music. On Friday, Aug. 18, she will release Mother Road, her fifth studio LP, which fuses elements of soul, blues, country, and rock, thanks to Potter and her collaborators. 

Speaking of which, her tour features Fort Wayne native Jordan West (Trackless, JIANT) on drums and backing vocals. West, who now resides in California, has been performing with Potter for a few years and can be seen in the video for her new single, “Good Time.” 

An evening with Potter and a welcoming home for West. You can’t go wrong with this show!

Local singer-songwriter Jessie Mae will celebrate her birthday by releasing The Rooftop Sessions EP on Aug. 20.

In addition, Mae will release a video of her performing the EP in its entirety on YouTube that day at 9 p.m. Mae will be on the chat during the premiere if you would like to give her feedback or ask questions. The 18-minute video was recorded by a drone on top of a downtown parking garage and from what I’m hearing is top-notch.
