London-based, British-French Artist, Producer and DJ Gracie Convert shares ‘Comme Avant’, a bilingual love letter to the inconsistent lover, soulfully blending R&B and Jazz with elements of Bossanova. This is the second offering from her forthcoming debut EP ‘Eau Secours’, a 4-track project dropping August 18th 2023 via AWAL.
Already championed by BBC Radio 1, Notion Magazine, Colors Berlin and Jyoty, this will be the first time the songstress integrates French into her music, providing a more personal insight into her story, upbringing and culture. Lyrically vulnerable yet strong-willed, Gracie explains: ‘This song is about craving the affection of someone who isn’t good for you, acknowledging the emotional repercussions that come with staying with them, but staying anyway because it feels good in the moment. I think we’ve all had a phase of falling for the ‘wrong’ type of person, especially when first finding our feet in love, I certainly used to’
Gracie’s unique storytelling and catchy soul-drenched melodies, paired with Jack Segal’s distinctive production style, are a mere taster of what’s to come from the multi-faceted artist, who is also becoming a household name within the London nightlife DJ scene, supporting the likes of Matt Jamm Lamont, Kitty Amor and Sef Kombo, as well as curating her own line ups for venues including Brixton Jamm and Soho House Group.
Further support includes Guap Mag, High Snobiety, Rinse FM and Reprezent Radio, and Editorial playlist support on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Jazz UK, Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds R&B.
Gracie was raised under the sun in the South of France and South Africa for most of her upbringing before moving to the UK at age 17. Since she launched, Gracie has been making a name for herself with her signature honey-dipped vocals, thought-provoking songwriting and versatile DJ sets, positioning herself as one of the most exciting artists to watch in 2023.
