Recently retired all-star quarterback for the Chicago Force, Sami Grisafe has traded the football for her ukulele and a world of music. She is set to release two new singles, “Tiny Victories” and “Brand New Fairytale” in February 2015.
It’s true Sami has a voice like Melissa Etheridge (Curve, Nov. 2013) and the attitude to boot. As you listen to Sami rock and croon through “Tiny Victories” her voice is gravely and has a hard rock slant that draws you into her story. She declares with feverish enthusiasm that she has indeed got “better things to do” then to ponder love gone—because quite frankly “I’m surprised how long we lasted.” On this track Grisafe has Linsea Waugh on background vocals—Waugh is best known for being half of the Chicago acoustic duo, Acoustic Generation.
