In other news, she’s announced a special performance at White Oak Music Hall in Houston Feb. 24 that will benefit the American Heart Association, with tickets going on sale Jan. 20th.
“We are thrilled to welcome Grace Potter to Ten Atoms and look forward to working with her on the next phase of her already outstanding career,” Ten Atoms founder and president Ryan Matteson said in a statement.
An announcement from Ten Atoms notes that Matteson and the company’s Brendan O’Connell will work as the day-to-day managers for Potter.
Potter has released four full-length albums with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, which she formed in 2002 while attending St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. Her latest solo album, 2019’s Daylight, earned two Grammy nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance.
