Featuring the big vocals of lead singer Paris and the rock jams of the Nocturnals, the band's latest release has garnered heavy rotation on MTV.

The Vermont based group formed in 2002 when Matt Burr noticed Potter performing at St. Lawrence University. They coined the name Grace Potter and the Nocturnals the following year and released their indie album Nothing But the Water. While the release wasn't a national hit, the band went on to receive nominations at the Boston Music Awards in 2005 for Best New Local Act and Best Local Female Artist. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals extensive concert schedule certainly paid off in 2006 when they were awarded the Best New Groove award at the Jammy Awards.

The band returned to the studio and released their sophomore set This Is Somewhere in 2007. Grace and the Nocturnal tour dates were booked on the opening stage for Gov't Mule for their North American tour. While their albums were not making an impact on the charts, their singles were heating up on shows such as All My Children, ER, and Grey's Anatomy, where they appeared in dramatic sequences. The band also booked performances on Jay Leno and Good Morning America. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals tour dates were scheduled on their largest stage yet when they opened for Dave Matthews Band in New York for their three night stint at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

In 2009, the group hit the studio with legendary producer Mark Batson, to produce a new album. In the meantime, Grace and the Nocturnals tour dates were booked at the 2009 Bonnaroo Music Festival where they debuted their lead-off single "Tiny Light". They released their third album Grace Potter and the Nocturnals in 2010. It immediately debuted at #20 on the Billboard 200 and became their first album to chart. The band garnered mainstream attention with the single "Paris (Ooh La La)". To prove that success hasn't changed them, Grace and the Nocturnals concert schedule remains as active as ever.
