Bio

Grace Turner grew up on Lake Macquarie North of Sydney. Her music career began the day she won a talent quest at her school concert wearing a lion suit singing 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight'. Her father is a poet and mother a painter and she grew up with early obsessions with The Beatles and Bob Dylan and the belief that a life should be lived creatively.

Her songs capture a time and place, they are haunting, honest and the perfect middle ground between melancholia and hope. Her melodies stick in the mind and heart, refusing to be forgotten.

"I wrote ‘Angry’ when I was in the back of a strangers car, hurtling through the back waters of France. I’d been at a farm stay that went terribly and was missing home. It basically came from a period of me tearing my life apart in order to find something different. A heavy topic however I hope it leaves the listener with a sense of hope and peace of mind."

Is everyone talking about this? Why haven't I heard about this song? Why am I just hearing this song? In the future I want songs like this played to me first. This song is wonderful
