“A very talented musician & multi-instrumentalist” Alan Raw / BBC Introducing
“Hull’s answer to Lucy Rose” Hull Daily Mail
Having been discovered by local talent guru & BBC Radio Humberside presenter Alan Raw when she attended a BBC Introducing Live Masterclass, Beverley born singer-songwriter Grace Christiansen now releases her new single Summertime – a beautifully textured & mesmeric song about wanting it to be summer and the life-affirming feeling of joy associated with that thought.
Recorded at Hull’s Tyrannosaur Paddock (great name for a studio huh!) & produced by Dan Spooner (Jack Conman, Alice Clayton) all instruments on Summertime are played by Grace, who explains how the record came about: “The song’s about wanting it to be summer. I had a holiday booked with my partner when I wrote it at my kitchen table in mid-winter. The weather was pretty awful & I closed my eyes & pictured being on a beach with nothing else to do. Everything’s so much better when the sun’s shining & you have an ice cream in your hand! Even though I wrote this song before the pandemic, the lyrics have become more relevant since & now I so want to go on adventures again & see the world”.
