“It is rare to see a performer with such power over a crowd. She captured and held everyone’s attention all night with every lusty howl, every devastating smile, every sway of the hips…” – Charleston City Paper

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ self-made 2005 debut album, Nothing but the Water, revealed a musically sophisticated young band inspired by the music of the late ’60s/early ’70s and fronted by a then-21-year-old dynamo whose nuanced singing, organ playing and songwriting belied her age.
Now, seven years after hitting the radar, GPN take an exponential leap with the widescreen opus The Lion The Beast The Beat. With this musically combustible and conceptually dazzling work, the Vermont-based band forcefully takes its place alongside the best of its peers while building on the rich legacy of its inspirations.
The Lion The Beast The Beat represents a rite of passage for a band that is knocking on the door of greatness. “This process was more painstaking than on any other record we’ve made; a complete labor of love and hate. I credit the Nocturnals for courageously jumping off that cliff with me,” Potter acknowledges. “We all took a risk and I hope that resonates when people hear the album.”
