Championed by BBC Introducing, 20-year old Grace Carter grew up
in Brighton listening to the likes
of Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone, as evident in her powerful songwriting, which shows emotional and musical depth & prowess. 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. Grace has a voice second-to-none & is already drawing comparisons across the press, blogs & socials with some of history’s greatest soul & pop singers including Adele.
Armed with emotionally exposing songs and a once-seen-never- forgotten live presence, 2019 looks set to be Grace’s breakout year.
