Bio

Grace has been singing and writing songs since she was 8, when she first learnt piano. She was lucky enough to find herself immersed in the Melbourne song-writing community from a young age. After workshopping with Ben Salter and Helen Gosling in 2015, Grace then developed her childhood dream into something more, and began planning her trip to USA for 2016. Grace recorded a mini-album in Portland Oregon in November of 2016, whilst she was also attending high school in the area. With producer Adam Selzer of Type Foundry Studios, she recorded six songs before coming back to Melbourne to launch it in early August. She worked with the elite musicians of Portland; Luke Yditsie (Blind Pilots), Jon Neufield, Ben Nugent and Aliah Farrah (M.ward) and shared a recording space with those such as 'Snow Patrol' and 'She and Him'. Her captivating combination of jazz and blues mixed with pop influences create a distinctive sound, complimented by her powerful vocals. With Influences varying between Missy Higgins, Lake Street dive, Melody Pool and Ella Fitzgerald and her songwriting inspired by the Indigo Girls and Ainslie Wills, Graces songs of love, loss and longing are relatable to any passing listener. Graces songs depict maturity beyond her 18 years.

I love how much this reminds me of early 2000s rom-com movie soundtracks. Continue fleshing out your melodies and reigning in that powerhouse voice, and I think you'll be a star!

Ok look I was not expecting that explosion around the minute mark and once I got over the shock, I was super impressed and my heart became full. This is such a jazzy and smooth track all over. This feels like twilight walking along the river with a close friend.
