Brighton-based singer-songwriter Grace Carter shares her latest song “Why Her Not Me”.
Brighton-based singer-songwriter Grace Carter has shared her latest song “Why Her Not Me”. The song received its first play during Apple Beats 1 with Julie Adenuga. It was written by Mike Kintish and Grace Carter and produced by The 23rd and Stephen ‘Koz’ Kozmeniuk.
Grace says of the song, “I wrote ‘Why Her Not Me’ in 2016 on the day I realised I had been lied to and I wasn’t the ‘only one’. This song may mean something to me but I hope you can connect it to your own lives and stories the way that I do.”
The song will appear on her upcoming project, featuring further contributions from Fred Ball, Martin Sjolie, Om’Mas Keith, Justin Parker, Max McElligott, and Fred Cox. The project is expected to be released later this year. Carter started making music when she was 13. She released a debut song “Silence” last September and supported of Dua Lipa and Dermot Kennedy’s tour. Her debut EP “Saving Grace” was released on June 15 2018.
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.
Armed with emotionally exposing songs and a once-seen-never-forgotten live presence, 2018 looks set to be Grace’s breakout year.
