Grace Weber Presents The Campfire at the Bowery Poetry Club on Sunday, Jan. 31st (Indie Soul)

Indie soul singer Grace Weber is presenting 'The Campfire' next Sunday at Bowery Poetry which features acoustic sets from The Relatives, Grace Weber Band, and Isaac Gillespie.

The show starts at 7PM and the evening features "some good ol' acoustic music around the campfire, complete with free cookies and a special campfire menu including s'mores, chili, chorn bread, and hot chocolate provided by the celebrate cafe".

Grace Weber, 21 years old, is a veteran to the stage who participated as a finalist on Oprah’s Nationwide Singing Contest. Among Grace's accomplishments include singing on the famed "Showtime at the Apollo" in Harlem, NY, at the Kennedy Center, the Ella Awards, and appearing on the Today Show. Grace's ear for soul music was present at a young age and continued to grow after joining the Inner City Youth Gospel Choir in Milwaukee, WI, where she performed at churches and revivals around the city.

After moving to New York in 2006 for music school, Grace met her band mate, Julian Pollack, and formed, "Grace and Julian," along with Jayme Silverstein and Adam Jackson. After two years of performing at NYC clubs, such as The Bitter End, The Groove, and The Bowery Poetry Club, Grace and the guys decided to change the name to the "Grace Weber Band" and they have been gaining momentum since. The band did two summer tours, performing at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI and at the Mendocino Music Festival in CA. They have also performed at colleges around the country and are continuing to gain recognition in the indie circuit as well as from major players in the music industry. "Grace and Julian" released two all-original albums and the "Grace Weber Band" is currently working on new material for the next album.

The Relatives is a band comprised of three members --siblings Katie Vogel, Ian McLellan Davis, and Gabriel Gall –who created their band in November of 2007. Their music has influences from Folk, Chinese Traditional, and Tango.

Isaac Gillespie is an accomplished musician who has self-released a record “1971.” His music is a blend of Folk, Country, and Soul.
