Now, Grace offers a fresh perspective on relationship power imbalances in stunning new single ‘Easy I Fall’. Already this song has captured praised from all around, receiving rotation on triple j, taking out the Unearthed slot on Grow Your Own Festival, touring with Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson, and flaunting across numerous festivals and venues throughout Australia.

A true artist who showcases stunning intensity, Grace Turner writes with clarity, integrity and delivers with purpose. A captivating troubadour, Grace often has her audiences at a standstill, with those present hooked on her every note.
