ACT NAME: Grace Carter
GENRE: R ‘n’ b, Pop, Soul
HOME TOWN: Brighton
MUSICAL FAMILY TREE: Alicia Keys, Emeli Sandé, Tei Shi
WHY CARE: At just 19 years old, Grace Carter has a slick and focused approach to music rarely even seen in those who have been in the game for years. Her natural talent and evident knack for great pop songwriting must be turning the heads of all of her peers. Her debut single “Silence” sees her delivering a mesmerizing vocal performance over drums and sparse piano, drawing attention to the raw energy in her voice and her soulful r ‘n’ b inspired hooks. If her first effort is anything to go by, then her forthcoming full-length is definitely one to look out for, with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe recently heralding it as a “monstrous” and “amazing” record.
