Soft, but certain and quietly confident - meeting Grace
you're greeted with an energy akin to a breath of fresh air. The Cronulla-based musician is known for her honey-dripped vocals and dreamy melodies, and she's currently in The Bay exploring an exciting new sound - recording with the lead singer of one of our fave local bands, Tora
(now that's a musical love child we are super excited to listen to!) Get to know her...
Describe your ultimate space for writing music in....
My ultimate writing space has to my white room with my acoustic piano and guitars laying everywhere, but it has to be night and lit up with all my candles! I find this is when I am able to breathe and get everything out on paper and song.
My number one musical muse will always have to be Joni Mitchell, but lately I've been exploring new styles of writing and an influence has been some old school Drake. I never limit myself to one style of music!
Tell us about a book that changed your life...
A book called 'The Book of lost Things' somehow managed to change my state of mind when I was about 12 years old and refused to read. I ended up falling in love with the book and the fantasy world and would take it into the bath. I can't even remember what the book was about but its how my love of books sparked and now I don't leave my house without a book in my bag.
What's next for you?
I am heading to Byron Bay tomorrow morning to start another 2 weeks of recording with my good friend and now producer from an amazing band called Tora. I'm taking up a new style that's more electronic, soul and chilled out. I cannot wait to finish recording and surprise everyone at the end of the year with something completely fresh. It'll be a good way to finish off the Europe holiday I will be having, touring with my boyfriend and musician Hein Cooper.
So much exciting new paths I'll be exploring this year
