Grace Carter shares stunning new ‘Why Her Not Me EP’ Including previously unreleased song ‘Waiting Room (Demo)’ Confirms Electric Brixton headline show 28th March 2019 Previous tour support for Haim, Dua Lipa, Mabel, Jorja Smith, Rag N Bone Man + Dermot Kennedy Fresh off the back of a sold-out headline UK and European tour, rising star Grace Carter shares the Why Her Not Me EP, including a previously unreleased track Waiting Room. Having previously toured with Haim, Dua Lipa, Jorja Smith, Mabel, Dermot Kennedy + Rag N Bone (with shows at Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy), Grace Carter’s current single ‘Why Her Not Me’ continues to strike listeners to the core. Although it’s message could be universal, the meaning behind it is in fact much more personal. Previously playlisted on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2, ‘Why Her Not Me’ tackles the notion of jealousy and abandonment Grace felt for her father, who’s lack of presence in her early life inspires a lot of her music. Grace sees her music as letters she never got to write and everything she wanted to say but never could until now. 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.
