Following Carter’s death in 2002, Grammer made the decision to play solo at several of the dates that they had scheduled, most notably an engagement at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Taking into account Carter’s expressed wish that eventually she would sing all of the songs, she continued playing Carter’s music.
Her first solo album, The Verdant Mile, was an EP containing her first original composition, the title track, a eulogy for Carter.
Her second solo release, Flower of Avalon, consisted of ten tracks, nine of which were written by Carter before his death, and one of which is a traditional folk song arranged by William Jolliff. The album was co-produced by Grammer and John Jennings. Featured artists include Mary Chapin Carpenter, who provided many backing vocals, and Jim Henry, Grammer’s touring partner and Signature Sounds label mate.
Her third album, Book of Sparrows, was released in November, 2007 and is a seven-song EP featuring covers of songs by Tom Russell, Kate Power, David Francey, Dave Carter, and Paul Simon. The EP was co-produced by Grammer and Jim Henry.
