Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter TRACE was made to create music.
Growing up in Orange County, California, the daughter of Carol Kim (known as "the Tina Turner of Vietnam"), TRACE never planned to follow her mother's footsteps and pursue a career in music. She picked up a guitar for the first time as a teenager, but didn't begin writing songs until her freshman year of college. TRACE found her voice in writing songs, and since then, music has become a personal calling that she hasn’t turned away from.
In 2016, TRACE brought her first project, the Low - EP, to life through a Kickstarter campaign. The 4-track piece earned her comparisons to the “west-coast cool of Lana Del Rey" and the “R&B-kissed ruminations of James Blake,” as well as over 20M streams and her first record deal.
In early 2018, TRACE made her Ultra Records debut with her single “Blood and Bones,” followed by two more singles: "Side Eye” (which was featured on The Fader's fall list of "Best New Pop Songs") and "Anxiety." For the latter, TRACE partnered with the non-profit organization National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) to raise awareness on anxiety in the entertainment industry.
With over 55 million streams across her catalog, and press support from Refinery 29, Teen Vogue, NYLON, Forbes, HypeBeast, C-Heads Magazine, The Line of Best Fit and L’Officiel it’s clear that TRACE is a voice you can’t ignore.
Next, TRACE is set to release her sophomore EP, expected late summer/early fall of 2019.
