Though she didn’t ultimately take the championship, Grace Askew nonetheless captured audiences all across the globe with her run on the massively popular competition show The Voice. Working with country star Blake Shelton, she turned out some fierce performances, including a fierce take on the classic “These Boots are Made for Walkin’”. In a recent interview, Rolling Stone dubbed her the “number one most robbed” contestant of that season of The Voice, but Askew isn’t letting her experience on that program cloud her music.
Instead, she’s progressing forward, and in some particularly gutsy ways. Her latest LP, Scaredy Cat, which you can stream below, was recorded in one four-hour session at Memphis’ reputed Sun Studios. Music clearly comes naturally to this talented singer and songwriter.
