Get to know: Grace Woodroofe

You should get ready to hear a lot more about Grace Woodroofe in 2012. This Australian born singer who was discovered & managed by the late Heath Ledger when she was still in High School just unleashed her debut LP, Always Want here in the States. Ledger was so enamored with the singer's music that he passed it along to Ben Harper, who eventually produced the debut. Part sultry, part raw, this now 21 year old singers debut seems wise beyond her years, mixing bits of soul, blues, and folk to create a pretty spellbinding first LP. Check out some of her music below, with the beautiful opening track, "I've Handled Myself Wrong," and her kick ass  take on The Stooges, "I Wanna Be Your Dog" below.
