'Saving Grace' is ample proof that it's gonna be Grace Carter's year
She also recently announced her debut headlining show in London at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on June 6
Right after supporting Mabel, Dua Lipa and Rag N Bone Man on their UK and European tours, Grace Carter has released her new track, 'Saving Grace.'
The track is an empowering anthem from the talented 20-year-old, London-born singer/songwriter. Listen to "Saving Grace" here.
Talking about the song, Carter says, “’Saving Grace’ is a song I wrote for my mum and the strong women who helped her raise me. I spent my whole childhood focused on what wasn’t there and this song is about the moment I realized the most important people have been right in front of me this whole time.”
The confessional track features thunderous percussion, ethereal piano, and powerful vocals from the British rising star.
Carter continues to gain momentum with her touring profile and significant airplay on BBC Radio 1. She also recently announced her debut headlining show in London at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on June 6.
Carter grew up in Brighton listening to the likes of Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone, which is evident in her songwriting, displaying her 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.
A year later, she had converted her bedroom into a makeshift recording studio and when she reached music college she taught herself the piano by watching YouTube videos.
Numerous critics of the music world have also taken notice, with Refinery29 raving, “While you're waiting for that next Adele album to drop… fill the hole in your soul with Grace Carter… Sam Smith should probably watch his back,” while The Fader commented on the “focused approach to her music that her more-experienced peers should be envious of.”
Grace’s debut EP is due for release sometime later this year. Armed with honest, masterful songs, a dynamic live presence coupled with formidable vocal talents, it looks like 2018 is all set to be Grace’s breakout year.
