Our good friend Ryan Russell has a great acoustic performance series titled Nervous Energies, and we’re big fans of it here on AbsolutePunk. Today, we’re premiering part of a session Ryan did with acoustic singer/songwriter Grey Gordon, who is currently out on the Vans Warped Tour, performing at the Acoustic Basement all summer long. Performed on a nylon stringed guitar, “Grace” details Gordon’s frustration with someone who has inflicted pain on those around them. You can check the song out as part of his split with Chris Farren.
