Gracie Schram Releases New EP on September 30th
New collection of songs produced by Brad Corrigan (Dispatch) and Rick Seibold
NASHVILLE, TN— Singer/songwriter Gracie Schram will release her new EP Dear Fall on September 30, 2016. The EP is a collection of four wistful, beautiful melodies that showcase her vulnerability and soulful vocals. Dear Fall features music produced by Brad Corrigan of the band Dispatch, as well as Rick Seibold.
“Gracie is a lightning rod of joy and creativity and her songs are all drenched in real and tangible hope,” said Corrigan. “She is a young, strong voice of leadership and grace that the world so desperately needs today!”
Dear Fall is the latest accomplishment in Gracie’s impressive and purposeful music career, which has included opening for American Idol star David Archuleta, as well as performing opening acts for Ingrid Michaelson, Lauren Alaina and Crystal Bowersox. In addition, Gracie has played a number of significant music festivals, including SXSW and CMA Fest. Her debut studio album I Am Me was produced by Grammy-award winner Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, Kris Allen, Lone Bellow, Switchfoot) and released in 2015 while Gracie was still in high school.
“Dear Fall is deeply personal. It’s the story of my experience as I’ve prepared to transition to a new chapter. I couldn’t be more excited to share these songs with my fans,” said Schram. “My hope is that Dear Fall will help inspire, comfort and encourage everyone who listens."
The release coincides with the launch of Gracie’s new website www.gracieschram.com. The updated site features the latest tour dates, videos, photos and blog content.
Dear Fall will be available for purchase on September 30, 2016. The same evening, Gracie will perform a live show on @CokeMusic’s Periscope channel. To learn more about Dear Fall, visit Gracie’s blog, where she shares a behind the scenes look at the EP and exclusive content.

Dear Friends and Dear Fall,
I’ve been dreaming about fall of 2016 – dreaming of my first semester of college, of leaving home, of starting something completely unknown. It was always exciting and terrifying to wonder about how new it would all be and now it’s finally here.
My music career has been growing and I was scared that if I went to college it meant putting my career on hold. I realized that career and college are not mutually exclusive – I can and will be doing both. Having a “college experience” matters to me. It’s hard to write songs about things I haven’t experienced and I know college will be another crucial chapter that shapes me. I learned a lot about myself as a musician and as a person through the search for the right college and it led me to Nashville, to Belmont University, a place I will come to know as my second home.
I am INCREDIBLY EXCITED to announce my new EP “Dear Fall” coming out 9/30!!! It is hard to put into words how proud and ready I am to share these songs with you. It is going to be a crazy year and through music, I’m writing a yearlong letter to myself and to you. And it starts with “Dear Fall.” I hope these songs lift you up and inspire you and fill you with happiness as they’ve done for me. I hope you see yourself in this music and find comfort in knowing my stories are just like yours.
Thank you for your support and belief in me. If you like the music, PLEASE BUY “Dear Fall” on iTunes on 9/30 and tell your friends to do the same! How cool would it be if we charted on iTunes (fingers crossed!!!!!). You are wonderful!
