Drummer-turned-songwriter Kim Ware started the Good Graces on a whim in 2006, after purchasing a beat up, old acoustic guitar she named Buzzy at the Lakewood Antiques Market in Atlanta. The songs quickly poured out of her, melodic stories of heartache and hope, set to three chords that she often didn’t know the name of. Since then, Kim and tGG have toured the east coast multiple times, paid musical visits to Texas, over to California, and performed at such festivals as 30A, NXNE, and LEAF, where Kim was a finalist in the NewSong Singer-Songwriter Competition in 2019.

In 2015, Kim's song "Cold in California" caught the attention of the Indigo Girls, who invited tGG to support some midwest and southeast shows during their summer tour. Shortly thereafter, Kim began work on tGG's 4th full-length album, "Set Your Sights," which received accolades from the likes of No Depression and Noisey. The follow-up LP, "Prose and Consciousness," was released on October 11, 2019.
