2019 has been a year of self-discovery amidst hard work and mind-blowing fun for Grace Carter.
From being swathed in accolades at its helm, to performing at festivals all over the world and completing her first Asia tour with shows in Japan, Korea, and Bali, to releasing new music and to somehow finding the time to focus on developing her song writing and engage in exciting sessions in both London and LA.
‘I’ve spent the past 2 years of my career reliving my childhood and forgetting to live in the moment. This new music is about me growing up, discovering new parts of my self and finding forgiveness and peace in some of the situations I’ve encountered in my life. Fired Up is a song I wrote about falling in love for the first time. I feel stronger than ever - I found strength through my vulnerability.’
Having previously toured with Haim, Dua Lipa, Jorja Smith, Mabel, Dermot Kennedy + Rag N Bone Man (with shows at Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy), Grace grew up in Brighton listening to the likes of Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone, which is evident in her powerful songwriting, which shows emotional and musical maturity. She began songwriting during her school days, and at the age of fourteen was already performing her own material in public. One year later, Grace had converted her bedroom into a makeshift recording studio and when she reached Music College she taught herself the piano by watching YouTube videos.
