"I wanted to be a woman from day one. ‘Paris’ might have been the first time I actually realized it in a song. I think people thought I was this earth mother type, but if you look at video footage of me dancing to Paula Abdul when I was ten, you’ll know what was going on." grace potter

"A show needs to feel like something that doesn’t stop. A lull might happen before a song and it might sound like we’re taking a break, but really, if you listen closely, there’s a drone on the organ and I’m building up an intro into the next song. So it’s a journey. I like to write the set like it’s a movie, same as a song. It has to have a beginning, middle, and end." grace potter

"I was always a musician, let’s start with that. My mom said that I was singing before I was talking. Apparently, I would make up fake words when I was about one. It was a long time coming." grace potter

"I think what I’d want to tell people, if they don’t know us, is to not believe everything they’ve heard. I think a lot of people have me pegged as a Janis Joplin wannabe, or the diva of the jam band scene or whatever. But, I think there’s a lot more to it than that…You can’t be confined to a two-sentence paraphrase in Rolling Stone." grace potter
