Singer-songwriter Grace Woodroofe released her debut album Always Want in January and is gearing up to tour in March. Her latest single is the acoustic-guitar driven "Transformer," which she croons in a raspy voice. Woodroofe says the track is about the transformations actors go through on a regular basis.

Random Notes

"At 18 years old, with a few weeks living in Los Angeles under my skin, I started to become deeply fascinated with the lives my actor friends led," she says. "Accompanying them to auditions, watching rehearsals and witnessing the unrelenting desperation outside the casting rooms . . . it put into perspective the lengths people go to fit the mold."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
