A native of the Tampa Bay area of Florida, Lorna Bracewell, 24, is a seasoned singer-songwriter with a powerful and distinctive alto voice, a fresh and timely perspective on life, and a resume that reads like that of someone twice her age: she has performed more than 1,000 engagements; she has released 5 full-length CD's on her own label, Braced Well Records; and she has toured Europe three times.

Bracewell's thoughtful original songs and her fresh spins and insightful commentary on a wide variety of cover tunes have endeared her to audiences and critics alike. The St. Petersburg Times calls her "smart, funny and, quite possibly, the outspoken heir to the Ani DiFranco throne."


Bracewell has also earned the respect of established artists for whom she has performed opening sets: Amy Grant described her as "a spirited young artist with a lot to say," and Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) called her "a beautiful person and a spirited player."

David Jenkins, Executive Director of Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce, Florida, perhaps summed her up the best. After hosting Bracewell for a co-bill with a major national artist, he described her as "a totally engaging voice, a prowess on acoustic guitar that allows her to paint with many colors, and an easy, intimate manner with her listeners. A commanding and absolutely fearless stage presence. And offstage, a total professional and a joy to work with."
