Singer, Songwriter, Actress Grace Fae’s CD Release Party w/Cousin Cricket & Friends

Singer, songwriter, and actress Grace Fae, is best known for her leading roles in acclaimed local productions of  “Into the Woods” (Sierra Stages), “Anna and The King” (CATS), “A Streetcar Named Desire” (Paul Emery Productions), and “Crimes of the Heart” (Legacy Productions)This Thursday at the Miners Foundry, Fae will step out in a way we’ve never seen her before.  She will front a nine-piece band and perform songs from her new album “From the Apple”.

“From the Apple” effortlessly navigates between Billie Holiday-esque jazz ballads, swing and boogie-woogie a la the Andrew Sisters, and folk songs inspired by Kate Wolf, Joni Mitchell, and Joan Baez, all in an original and compelling sound that is sure to delight Fae’s theatre enthusiasts and local music fans.

“I’ve been singing other people’s songs for 20 years,” says Fae.  “It’s very empowering to get up on stage and sing my own words.”

After graduating from Yale University, Fae moved cross-country to San Francisco.  Six years ago, after living in the Bay Area and then in Sacramento, she finally made her way to Nevada City and fell in love with the area’s natural beauty.

“Many of my songs were written while living here and are heavily influenced by my natural surroundings,” explains Fae.

What’s up next for the songstress?  She will star as Cleopatra in Synthetic Unlimited’s production of “Anthony and Cleopatra” this July and August at the Nevada Theatre and hopefully lots of touring.

Classic Western swing band Cousin Cricket opens the show.

“It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
~ NPR’s Morning Edition

2016 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially succesful album Hot.  Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable.  Thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations, Hot sold over 1.3 million copies.  In honor of the 20th Anniversary, Squirrel Nut Zippers have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor.

“It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival!” commented band leader Jimbo Mathus.  “The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way.  But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.”
