About Grace:
Mixing seemingly effortless musicality and original storytelling, Grace Morrison turns deeply personal and historical stories into song for listeners from all walks of life. ”With a crystal clear voice and songs that land squarely in your heart, Grace has something truly special,” says producer/performer Jon Evans of Brick Hill Studios. And Jon should know, he has spent his career playing with the very best singer-songwriters of our generation: Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Ben Folds, and Paula Cole.

2017 marks a turning point for Grace as she released her first full length CD: ”I’m The Apple”. The deeply personal album is full of catchy choruses, history, emotion, and storytelling; all key elements of her unique style.

Grace is a regular on national festival circuit and has won a number of prestigious awards including the Eventide Arts Songwriting Competition and the Big Break contest where her music video was played on the season finale of American Idol.

Grace on Grace:
I like to tell stories stories that, ordinarily, people wouldn’t think about. My latest CD includes songs inspired by World War II, Anne Boleyn, addiction, and new love. But they all relate. We all feel the same things. Love, hate, anger, shame…as a songwriter my job, my passion is to speak for the unspoken, the forgotten. And hopefully do it in a way that has you singing along with me.

Others On Grace:
”I am in awe that such a young woman would do a tribute to those of us who served, and particularly to those who fell. Thank you!” Congressionally chartered Vietnam Veterans of America regarding the song and video ”Taking Johnny Home”

”Her voice is honest and crystal clear and the songs are clever and inspired. As a side note, it is a testament to her talent that Morrison sounds as good live as she does on her record.” Mark Gorman, Newport This Week

”Grace’s captivating stage presence and flawless vocals take only a back seat to her perpetual charm. The combination of laser focus and positive spirit makes her quite an exceptional musician and person.” AMVCreative CEO, Armen Varadian

”Grace’s voice is a reflection of herself–pure and true. She is an incredible talent.”
Bongo Beach Productions, Grammy nominated recording engineer, John Mailloux

Greg Johnson Joins 7522 Beach Mountain Radio With His Cape Cod Music

Cape Cod has long been known for its pristine beaches, the local surf and art cultures and the live music scene. For three decades, Greg Johnson has been a central part of the Cape’s local color as a Nauset Beach lifeguard legend, professional artist and musician. His James Taylor Tribute Band ‘SHOWER THE PEOPLE’ draws full houses and rave reviews at every show.

Greg comes from a long line of Johnson family artists and has recently made a name for himself as an aquatic artist. He studied art at Ohio Wesleyan and the University of New Hampshire, and is self-taught as a painter. Looking into one of Greg’s large acrylic paintings gives the viewer a feeling of being immersed in the water with the whales and dolphins. For Greg, the aquatic life he paints represents spirituality, peace and freedom.

The inspiration for his work comes from a variety of sources, including his family and aquatic muralist Bob Wyland. Greg also gives motivational credit to the years he has spent at Nauset Beach, where whale and other marine life sightings are an everyday experience.

His work is displayed in galleries, private homes, libraries, banks, coffee shops, and local business offices. Most recently, Greg has opened a gallery and studio in East Orleans.

Greg Johnson is excited that his music is heard on 7522 Radio.
