Lead Vocal, Guitar, and Lyricist
Born in Tampa FL and raised in Odessa FL, Gracie fell in love with the magic of all music as a young girl. Anxious to explore her voice, she began singing with her elementary school choir and continued throughout her schooling years. In her twenties, after playing around with the acoustic guitar, Gracie had a few songs under her belt that seemed to get peoples toes tapping. She met A.J. Topp in 2006 and they created Sunset Bridge Band.
