hmv's Next Big Thing... #77 Grace
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising soulstress Grace...
Who Is She?
Grace is 19-year old Australian songstress Grace Sewell. After racking up 43 million views and an appearance in the latest Suicide Squad trailer with her cover of Lesley Gore's 'You Don't Own Me', she takes a full bow on Friday with the release of her debut LP FMA.
Who Does She Sound Like?
She takes after the big-voiced divas, singers like Janis Joplin, Shirley Bassey and Amy Winehouse, but with production that's far more minimal, with slinky guitars and hip-hop beats.
Why Should I Be Excited?
She's got a powerful, elegant and intoxicating voice and some great tunes.
Can I Hear Something?
Certainly. You can hear 'You Don't Own Me' below and pre-order FMA on the right-hand side of the page now.
