Grace Theisen and her band make their return to The Livery on Saturday, June 10th!

7:30pm / 8:30pm show – $10 admission


Grace Theisen is a Kalamazoo-based independent Blues/Americana artist. Grace’s love for music started in her childhood living room, harmonizing to folk and blues songs with her family. Inspired by a variety of artists from bluegrass/folk singers like Patty Griffin and Alison Krauss to 1950’s & 60’s Beatles and The Supremes to the King of Blues, B.B. King.

She graduated from Hope College with double major in Psychology and Women’s Studies. As her love for musical composition evolved throughout her college career, she realized singing and songwriting were having a far greater impact on her life than she anticipated.

From 2012-2018, Grace co-founded and ran a nonprofit called Songs Against Slavery. They worked to fight sex trafficking in the United States by raising money and awareness through benefit concerts and musician partnerships. They ran 28 benefit concerts in eight states and raised over $375,000 to aid in the fight against sex trafficking. SAS closed their doors in 2018 because Grace wanted to focus all of her energy on music.

Grace lived in Nashville, TN from 2015-2018 to run SAS full-time. In that time she opened for Emmylou Harris, played the infamous Bluebird Cafe, participated in songwriter rounds at The Listening Room and opened for Matthew Perryman Jones at The Nashville City Winery.

Grace just released her first single, Brightest At Night. This will be the first of five songs from her 2022 EP, Dance With The Shadows. The record was produced by Jake Rye of the Social Recording Company who is also the producer for fellow Michigan artists: Michigander, Brother Elsey, Leland Blue, Jack Droppers & The Best Intentions. This single was co-written with international award-winning songwriter, Katie Pederson, who hails from Michigan but just moved to Nashville, TN. This 5-song EP will be a mix of Blues, Pop, and Americana. She recently won Cari Cole’s Best New Artist of 2021.
