We last caught up with singer-songwriter, vocal powerhouse and now-producer Grace Davies in 2020 when she released her debut EP, “Friends With The Tragic“. She’s on number three now, “It Wasn’t Perfect, But We Tried”!
Her new collection is Grace’s most authentic and accomplished body of work to-date. Five smart, sassy, genre-crossing songs that find the 25 year old confidently claiming control of her own career and destiny.
Grace co-produced the EP with collaborator Toby Scott (Becky Hill, Galantis), completely self-producing two of the tracks, “Windows & Walls” and her previous single release “Already Gone”; the EP proves Grace a true multi-hyphenate.
“It Wasn’t Perfect, But We Tried” includes the new single, triumphant showstopper, “Breathe” – a lesson in pop mastery featuring Grace’s signature powerhouse vocal, crashing drums and a hook-driven, belter of a chorus. Grace’s third EP spans five years of her whirlwind career. The first cut, “Wolves”, along with “Breathe”, the first song Grace wrote after The X Factor, are the oldest songs. The most recent is the sensual, woozy, electronic “Supervillain”, written over Zoom last year after a lockdown relationship turned sour.
Meanwhile, previous release “Already Gone” saw Grace sat in the producer’s chair for the first time. The record is the follow-up to last year’s EP “I wonder If You Wonder”, a personal collection of tracks which marked the artist’s astounding progress since embracing the journey into releasing independently, previously being signed to the now-defunct SYCO (Sony Music). Standout release “Roots” reached the Top 3 in the UK iTunes Single Charts, entering the Official Chart Company Top 100 and the UK big Top 40, as well as gaining plays across BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, Heart & Capital FM along with a raft of regional support.
Grace’s music is resonating more than ever, especially when it comes to modern relationships. Striking a chord with fans, her songs are also finding homes within current pop culture; Grace had four syncs on the 2022 season of ITV2’s Love Island, soundtracking key moments in the popular reality TV show. Fans were able to experience Grace showcase these songs live – plus debut her new music – at a sold-out show at St. Pancras Old Church, London back in August, her first ever headline gig.
Ever pushing herself, Grace Davies is an all-encompassing musician and a fearless young pop talent who with her latest record has pushed her artistry firmly into sixth-gear.
