London born, Brighton raised singer/songwriter Grace Carter shares her powerful new video ‘Heal Me’. The visual sees Grace reminisce on her younger years, featuring snippets of her as a child. This video comes off the back of coming third in BBC’s Sound of 2019 as well as being tipped by the likes of MTV, YouTube Music, Amazon and Ticketmaster in their coveted one-to-watch lists.
As with all Grace’s songs ‘Heal Me’ strikes the listener to the core. The song’s premise is about feeling the pain of rejection and abandonment, but not letting it hold you back. This is something Grace felt as a child, being raised solely by her mother, as her relationship with absent father grew more distant. This track follows on from previous release ‘Why Her Not Me’, and once again showcases Grace’s expressive vocal. Grace sees her music as letters she never got to write and everything she wanted to say but never could until now.
Having previously toured with Haim, Dua Lipa, Jorja Smith, Mabel, Dermot Kennedy + Rag N Bone (with shows at Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy), Grace grew up in Brighton listening to the likes of Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone, which is evident in her powerful songwriting, which shows emotional and musical maturity. She began songwriting during her school days, and at the age of fourteen was already performing her own material in public. One year later, Grace had converted her bedroom into a makeshift recording studio and when she reached Music College she taught herself the piano by watching YouTube videos.
Armed with a one-heard-never-forgotten voice and beautifully crafted songs, it’s time to make way for Grace Carter.
