Grace Petrie’s unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered, have won over an army of loyal fans across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes.  She’s toured to arenas with Frank Turner, supported comedians Robin Ince, Josie Long and Hannah Gadsby, and has done a prestigious live session on the BBC Radio 2 Jo Whiley Show.  Her frequent festival appearances have included Glastonbury, Latitude and Cambridge Folk Festival.  In October 2020 she will tour for the first time with a band line-up with Grace Petrie & The Resistance Band.

Her current album, ‘Queer As Folk’, was released in Sept ’18 and was a Mojo magazine top 10 Folk Album of the Year.

 ‘She’s the urgent, pulsing, compassionate talent this world desperately needs.’  The Observer

‘She writes the sort of songs you want to pin the lyrics of on your bedroom wall, or on the office door, to remind you and everyone else who might read them what is important and true’ Buzz Magazine

    A folk singer, songwriter and activist from Leicester, UK, she has been writing, recording and touring relentlessly for ten years. She has racked up tour supports with Emmy the Great and Billy Bragg, and in 2019 supported Frank Turner on his UK arena tour.  She has also made her mark in the comedy scene regularly supporting comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long on tour.  She’s appeared at Glastonbury four times at the invitation of Billy Bragg, as well as an eclectic genre-crossing mix of festivals Latitude, Musicport, Blissfields, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Greenbelt and more including of course Cambridge Folk Festival.  And she has collaborated with some of the most respected names in folk, including Leon Rosselson, Roy Bailey and Peggy Seeger.

    Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered, have won over audiences everywhere, across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes, amassing her over 18,000 Twitter followers and 7,500 followers on Facebook and has individual Youtube videos with over 50,000 hits.  

    She has quietly become one of the most respected songwriters working in the UK today. She has been a frequent guest on BBC Radio 4’s the Now Show, has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts and has been featured in The Guardian, Diva Magazine and The Independent On Sunday’s Pink List of influential LGBT figures.

    Diva magazine nominated Grace for their 2018 Activist Award, presented to an LGBT activist whose work highlights inequality while advocating for positive, meaningful change.  She is currently nominated for Musician Of the Year in the 2019 Diva Awards.

    In May 2018 a Kickstarter campaign for her first full studio album, after five previous available-at-gig-only albums.  She raised £10,000 in just 24 hours and went on to achieve £18.000 in the two week campaign.  The album, ‘Queer As Folk’, was released in September 2018 and has gone on to be named a top 10 Folk Album of 2018 by Mojo magazine..
