Biography

Grace Stumberg is a creator of clearly accesible original music that grabs ears of all ages and kinds. Singing buffalos "Good Feet" jingle and opening for bands such as Rusted Root, Hawksley Workman, and Haiku Grace has shared her music with many.It is a genre that can be explained as pop/rock/funky/ sometimes folk, but never fully understood until experienced. Inspired by raw simple songwriting that really rocks out, Grace has earned her keep in the Buffalo area.

She has learned the ways of the "touring world" by serving as folk legend Joan Baez's guitar tech and personal assistant; of which has fueled her passion to use music for more than what it "sounds like". She has toured with musicians such as Left On Red singing songs to bring awareness to fair-trade purchases. Grace has also participated in the summer of 2011 "tunes4food" tour across the east coast raising money for local food banks with Nashville singer/songwriter Pete Mroz. When it comes to performing she has a wide range of cover music as well as originals.

Grace has the power to stand up on her own in and acoustic setting such as world renowned Cafe Lena- where artists such as Bob Dylan performed. Don't forget her band comprised of Michael Petrino on bass guitar, Bob James- electric guitar, and Josh English- drums.Stumberg can show up and shake up with this group and get crowds moving.
