Indie Spotlight: Gracie Schram

Posted in News on June 12, 2015

At 16, Gracie Schram is a wise-beyond-her-years singer-songwriter who fully embraces the awkwardness of youth while making music with a message. Not surprisingly, her brand of uplifting indie-pop is connecting with a wide audience. Showcasing Schram’s vocal range as well as her endearing personality over country-flavored acoustics, her newly released debut studio album I Am Me was produced by Nashville’s own Charlie Peacock, known for his work with contemporary folks acts The Lone Bellow and The Civil Wars. On songs like “We Are The Change” Schram asks, “We can’t do everything, but what if we all did something?” Speaking to the power of her generation to spark change in the world is something Schram has been doing since the tender age of 10. When she recorded her first EP, the proceeds went toward helping underprivileged children in Haiti and Africa. These days, giving back continues to be central to her craft. “That’s the reason I got into music at all,” she says. “And as I started to perform more and more, it was great to see people inspired by my music and connecting to my songs.”
