“Rock Salt and Nails”

At first blush, 4:43 for a single, from a folk singer, is usually 4:43 too much.. well, folk. Especially from an unknown singer. But Abel Grace, a singer/songwriter from San Antonio, Texas, gives a performance worthy of a grizzled folk veteran. Let’s skip the music for a second (that, by any account is straight-up blues on a single acoustic guitar, but who cares), this girl can write and sing.

“Rock Salt and Nails” is a tale of hurt, and a plot of revenge, that is so lyrically rich, it would be an insult not to listen to it less than a half a dozen times just to get a full understanding of the story. But the story is only rivaled by this young singer’s voice, a voice that is dripping with sincerity. Sincerity we haven’t heard since a young girl named Tracy Chapman came onto the scene.

I have only one thing to say to Ms. Grace, more please. Head here to listen to “Rock Salt and Nails”. - Frank Ippolito

Influenced by Folk and country legends such as Bob Dylan,, the Carter Family, and Hank Williams as well as  the music of the Mississippi Delta and the Texas Hill Country; Abel Grace (born Isabela Grace Garcia) is a 16 year old musician born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. Garcia grew up in a family of musicians, learning violin at 5, and teaching herself various roots instruments including guitar and mandolin starting at the age of 11. She began writing songs at age 12,  performing throughout the local circuit -both with bands and solo- by age 13, and making analog recordings in her bedroom. 

In 2014, while in town for a music conference, Garcia was invited to join in a performance with members of Whiskey Shivers, Della Mae, and Langhorne Slim at the legendary Station Inn in Nashville, TN. She managed to impress many people in attendance- including Joey Ryan of the Milk Carton Kids and Alex Hargreaves, a well-known and accomplished violinist and graduate of Berkeley University.
