Grace Davies is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter hailing from the rural Lancashire village of Langho, near Blackburn.
Growing up, Grace found plenty of occasions to perform across the country, and at 16 taught herself the piano to enable her to write the songs which had started to spill out of her busy brain! Her songwriting is influenced by modern writers Ben Howard, Ed Sheeran and Emeli Sande; artists that inspired Grace’s clever lyrics. Her style has a quirky individuality, which perfectly reflects her down-to-earth personality and edgy 'tell it like it is' sense of humour. Grace’s voice has a rich, smoky tone with a wide range; not surprising from someone who sites their influences as Carmen McRae, Etta James, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. She explains: “I find the writing process lots of fun. Usually, I start a song by messing around with piano chords then I generally scat a load of gibberish over the top which I find helps to set the vocal metre. I’m quite an impulsive writer. Lyrics generally stem from stories I write to myself about recent events. This helps me trap all of the emotions on the page so I can turn these feelings and stories into songs”.
