Hannah Grace grew up in South Wales, surrounded by music from a young age and is one of the brightest rising stars to come out of Wales in recent years.
Eager to learn more, she accepted an influence that came her way: from indie to soul, from jazz to rock, she learned something from each song that came her way.
Assembling it into a style of her own, Hannah Grace has been patiently waiting in the wings of the music industry for some time for the right time to make her entrance. I certainly am very pleased that she has finally arrived on the scene, with her incredible soulful voice.
Having caught the attention of one of my other favourite artists Gabrielle Aplin in 2012, she was invited to join Gabrielle’s tour and also sing backing vocals for her UK English Rain Tour in 2013 and Glastonbury set in 2014.
Hannah went onto release her debut Meant to be Kind E.P through Gabrielle Aplins’ Never Fade Records in July 2014 to an overwhelmingly positive response. One of the tracks from the EP, ‘Broke’, was selected as an iTunes Single of the Week in a staggering 12 countries. Support slots with some of her musical idols including Hozier, Gabrielle Aplin and Nate Reussof FUN! fame followed along with festival performances all over the UK, a coveted spot on the BBC’s Horizons scheme and a live session at the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios.
New cut ‘Mustang’ finds the singer stepping out confidently on her own. Hannah explains: “We live in a world where we are often expected to satisfy narrow definitions of who we are and what we want. ‘Mustang’ is about freeing yourself from those expectations, being yourself, and gladly accepting that nothing is Black and White, life and many colours are in between.”
Hannah is definitely an artist to watch out for in the near future. Watch this space!
