Althea Grace is a young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Chicago area. Althea’s music can best be described as new age blues with heavy doses of jazz, funk, and soul featuring her powerful, soulful voice and guitar skills to match. Growing up the daughter of music lovers and in a city filled with talent, music quickly became her sole passion in life. Before even learning to drive, Althea began sharing the stage with many notable bands such as X Ambassadors, The Shins & Sylvan Esso. Michael Kaiz of Jambase described Althea as “One of Chicago’s rising gems”.
In 2016, her duo “FUTURE STUFF” released their debut EP. She has spent much of the last year touring the country with “Future Stuff” opening for blues legend, Doyle Bramhall II and Grammy award-winning band, Los Lobos. — Quote via Sheryl Crow (Twitter/Instagram): “Saw a young duo called future stuff last night at City Winery Nashville. They blew me away! Check them out!!”
