Grace Kuch

Whether fronting a band or sitting in with musical heavyweights, Grace Kuch conveys a rare ease and instinct on blues guitar. At 20, she’s already distinguished herself nationally playing renowned venues across the U.S., including the Memphis International Blues Challenge, Greeley Blues Jam, King Biscuit Blues Festival, Big Blues Bender, and more. True to her name, she moves gracefully within traditional blues compositions on both acoustic and electric guitar, while her distinctive solos convey the keen clarity of a gifted young artist on the rise—and eager for more.

Grace’s background includes bluegrass, folk, and pop, but in 2014, blues became her focus when she discovered the expressive possibilities of electric guitar. Since then, she has played hundreds of gigs, attended prestigious blues camps across the U.S., and sat in with celebrated local and national artists. In the Grace Kuch Band, she fronts a group of seasoned musicians on lead vocals and guitar.

Grace was named Best Youth Performer in 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2021 at the Colorado Blues Society Members’ Choice Awards. She won a full scholarship to the hallowed Pinetop Perkins Foundation Workshop, as well as a John-Alex Mason Memorial Scholarship and Generation Blues Scholarships from the National Blues Foundation. Grace has now been promoted to a teaching Intern with the Pinetop Perkins Foundation.  In 2016, Smithsonian Magazine profiled Grace in its article “Keeping Blues Alive,” about the 32nd annual International Blues Challenge. In 2015, she was listed in American Blues Scene Magazine's 10-best list "10 Musicians Under 18 You Should Know".

Grace has recently released 2 albums and a newly released single, Got That Style featuring celebrated living Blues Legend Ronnie Earl. Grace is based in Northern Colorado. To learn more, visit
