Baker Grace is an artist who puts no limitations on herself or her music, who desires to make the world a more peaceful place, and who sees music as a way to heal and bring people together.
Born into a musical family, Grace remembers first falling for music while getting lost in the sounds of the radio while on long car journeys as a kid. Before long, she was singing along with her father playing on piano and guitar, and writing her own songs. By age 14, she knew that music was going to be her life.
"That's when I started dealing with negative emotions and thoughts that were really strong and taking a hold of me. I was getting really frustrated with the deceit and injustice I saw in the world around me and music was my only way to make sense of it and feel like I had the power to make a difference."
She turned those feelings into an album that she recorded with her dad in the basement of her home, and started releasing music and winning fans under the moniker of Bitter's Kiss at age 15. A year later, she signed a major record deal with Republic as Baker Grace and started working with acclaimed producer Scott Harris (Shawn Mendez, Dua Lipa, Chainsmokers, Chance The Rapper).
Grace used those years as a period of further self-discovery. She would go on to work with the likes of Cautious Clay, Scott Effman and Ayokay, and further showcase her identity on the refined 2017 singles 'Am I Talking to You?' and 'Day I Die', before becoming independent and coming into her own on her 2019 EP 'Girl, I Know', Across these releases she dropped anthems on finding true friends ('Wrong Kind of People') and hoping for a better world ("Handcuffs").
Her last EP 'The Show Is Over' was Grace at her most honest, conscious and confessional – an articulate collection of songs that makes for an authentic soundtrack to coming of age, making sense of the world, and learning to love yourself. Her follow up single "Midnight Thoughts" was a reminder to stay present and appreciate all the love that's right in front of you.
Now, after releasing a movie soundtrack with lead single "Lullaby" for the film "Last Survivors," starring Alicia Silverstone, Drew Van Acker and Stephen Moyer and touring in Mexico with artist Charlie Rodd, she's ready to release her boldest and most revealing statement yet on new song 'ShakeThe Earth' coming March 2022.
Equally as inspired by Kanye West as Carole King and choosing to focus on her art over fame or streaming numbers, Grace has been honing her production skills, musical chops and her message to showcase the real her.
Through the lessons she's learned on her own journey, she wants others who may have dark moments to face to know that there's a way out through awareness, consciousness and tackling your demons proactively. She doesn't want people to fall victim to the opinions of others or ideas of who they should be because they are afraid to trust themselves.
"I've done a lot of healing over the past two years. I've gone through a pretty rough time. I'm ready to just embrace myself and embrace life and I'm sure as hell done holding back. I've got one life and I'm ready to live it to the fullest. That's obviously easier said than done and I'm not expecting it to be smooth-sailing, but I know if I can do it, it shows everyone else that they can too, and that motivates me to keep going."
