FEATURING SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY NOMINEE
Seven-time Grammy nominated Natalie Grant is known for her powerful, soaring vocals, heart-gripping lyrics, passionate performances, and has remained one of the top-selling Christian & Gospel artists since her 2005 breakout RIAA Gold certified album, “Awaken.” She has since gone on to have nearly 4 million in career sales. The Gospel Music Association has named her Female Vocalist of the Year 5 times and she has had multiple number 1’s on the Billboard singles and albums charts, including her most recent record titled, “Be One.”
More than just music and awards, Grant has used her platform as an outspoken advocate for victims of human trafficking since 2005. She cofounded Hope for Justice International, which identifies and rescues victims of trafficking and then provides them with complete restorative care. The organization now has 23 locations spanning 10 countries and 4 continents.
In addition to her philanthropic efforts and impactful music career, Natalie is the author of several books, including a book series for tween girls titled “Glimmer Girls.” Her fashion and jewelry line, NG by Natalie Grant, has also seen great success.
Though she’s grateful for every career accomplishment, her passion continues to be connecting with people, and one of the most powerful ways she accomplishes this is through her unique and personal use of social media. Her real, authentic and personal interaction with her fans puts Grant at the top of the industry with fan engagement across all social media platforms.
Though she is a Seattle native, Natalie makes her home in Nashville, TN with her husband, producer/songwriter Bernie Herms and their three children: twins Grace and Bella, and their youngest, Sadie.
BLUE WATER HIGHWAY BAND
Blue Water Highway comes from the working class, coastal town background that has informed the work of so many of rock’s greatest writers and artists. They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas to Galveston, where the cops, the teachers, the baristas and the chemical plant workers travel to work hard and to play hard, blowing off steam, dancing to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack for their lives. “Best Friend” is the first single from their upcoming album Heartbreak City, coming out on Blue Water Highway Records/Thirty Tigers on June 8th. With a hook that’s a mile wide, it chronicles the lives, loves and friendships that sustain us. Blue Water Highway was started by two “best friends” from high school - Zack Kibodeaux (lead vocals, guitar) and Greg Essington (vocals/guitar). Zack then turned to Catherine Clarke (vocals/keyboard) to complete the three-part harmonies the band would soon be known for. They were then joined by Kyle Smith (Bass) and Jared Wilson (drums).
