Lighting Matches wsg Grace Theisen

Lighting Matches is an alternative-rock band based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Made up of musicians with a variety of musical backgrounds, Lighting Matches stays true to their roots while also setting fire to the lines and limitations of genre labels.  Fronted by dynamic duo Matt Plessner and Rachel White, and backed by the talented Mark Jilbert and Scott Garrison, their music displays lots of what they are best known for:  thought-provoking lyrics and tight harmonies. Special guest artist, Grace Theisen, is a queer Americana artist originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan. After graduating from Hope College in 2014 with a double major in Gender Studies and Psychology, Grace moved to Nashville, TN from 2015-2018 to run her nonprofit, Songs Against Slavery, full-time. Their mission was to raise awareness and fight sex trafficking in the U.S. through benefit concerts. They ended up raising over $375,000 to aid in the fight. In that time, she opened for Emmylou Harris, played the infamous Bluebird Cafe, participated in songwriter rounds at The Listening Room and opened for Matthew Perryman Jones at The Nashville City Winery.
