Gracious Vine is a Christian Rock Band with a strong worshipful foundation based out of Long Island, NY. Whether performing familiar songs from Hillsong United, Jesus Culture, David Crowder, Chris Tomlin or our originals, hearts are captivated, minds are encouraged and spirits are energized. Passionate vocals, warm minor tonality and dynamic lyrics, engage and elevate listeners to encounter Jesus Christ. Our sound is a mix of Christian rock and contemporary with ethereal and melodic riffs and solid acoustic and percussion. Joanna's strong alto vocals are reminiscent of Kim Walker-Smith or Lauren Daigle with perhaps a splash of Grace Slick and the raspy Janis Joplin.
