Most of us have those special family memories of summer vacations. There are certain smells, songs and pictures that can take us there in an instant. Singer/songwriter Grace O’Shea takes us to her family vacation spot in Sebago, Maine. She conjures up memories through poetry put to music in her stunning new single. Listen here, and get to know my Local Catch of the Week, Grace O’Shea from Milton, Massachusetts.
Having spent the last 6 years in Nashville, O’Shea has found the inspiration and home she sought when leaving New England. Her friendships, the musicians, producers and the community have lead her through tremendous growth. Her latest release, “Sebago” is a reflective journey that takes us from her roots here all the way to Nashville. We all know change is necessary for growth. For Grace, like all of us, it took leaving to miss what she had. With “Sebago” she can always go back
The song “Sebago” is a slow burn. It takes it’s time unfolding and painting pictures. It isn’t following any other path than to creatively lay out the yearning to go back in time, and the musical evocation of a special place. O’Shea will be releasing her debut EP on November 1, and this gem will be featured on it. She certainly has a gift for drawing emotions and delivering lyrics is a beautiful, soulful way.
Listening to Grace and other local musicians is a great way to support their art. You can also do so by going to see them performing live and getting to know them through internet searches, their social media sites and of course, here.
