#WHO: Grace Sewell is an 18 year old, Australian singer-songwriter with a fresh sound that’s as retro as it is innovative R&B.
#WHY: We love Grace because her voice is not only powerful, soulful, and mind-blowing, but she manages combine the rhythmic stylings of R&B and Hip-Hop with Jazzy vocals. Listening to her music definitely brought to mind artist like Amy Winehouse, Lauyrn Hill, and even some poppy belting like Christina Aguilera. She brings spunk and attitude, immediately commanding the track with her “take no mess” voice.
#WHAT’SNEW: Grace’s remake of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” has propelled her to the top of both iTunes and ARIA’s charts. What’s even better is that the legendary Quincy Jones even produced the track, just as he had for Gore… she’s got quite a seal of approval. She is currently signed to RCA Records and has released and EP entitled “Memo” featuring personal favorites “The Honey” and “Dirty Harry“. Not to mention her big brother Conrad Sewell is doing pretty major things himself, topping the charts with “Hold Me Up” and taking the industry by storm. She is certainly an artist to watch!
