Singer/songwriter Baker Grace will be performing for New Faces Night at The Basement in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday, February 13th, 2024.
With her debut EP in 2019, “Girl I Know”, Baker Grace emerged as an artist with undeniable confidence. She stretches the boundaries of pop music and with each new release shows a new level of musicianship and introspection while maintaining her integrity and singularity. The 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Weehawken, NJ is working to create her own charming reality aside from the masses. Her sophomore EP, “Yourz Truly” illuminated her inner world and personal philosophies more freely than ever, sharing her story with equal parts boldness and dreamy sensitivity. Each song represents either a letter to herself or to someone else. “Yourz Truly” was followed by collaborations with rising star Cautious Clay, Grammy-nominated producer Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers, Dua Lipa, Chance The Rapper, Kygo), and Mexican pop singer-songwriter Charlie Rodd. Following a slew of singles in 2021, Baker wrote four songs on the soundtrack for the feature film Last Survivors starring Alicia Silverstone, which topped the charts on Hulu, featuring the breakout track, “Lullaby”. Splitting her time between NYC and Los Angeles, she continued through 2022 with singles “Shake The Earth” and “Pressure”, and collaborative song “Little Magic” with Sabino along with stunning music videos to accompany them.
Baker Grace’s latest release “State of Mind” is about embracing the internal emotional struggle and knowing that it’s ok to feel sad sometimes. “State of Mind” is the first single release of 2024 and is from an upcoming April 2024 EP, and Baker Grace will be releasing songs monthly up to that point.
In the words of Baker Grace:
“ “State of Mind” is about coming to terms with the fact that pain is a part of life. We all go through hard times in our life, and it can feel really lonely. It’s easy to want to get rid of sadness in the quickest way possible or pretend the bad feelings don’t exist, but I think we should acknowledge and celebrate every emotion because it is all part of what makes us human and being human is a beautiful thing. I think I always felt like I wasn’t allowed to be sad, and my problems didn’t matter because I have been very fortunate in life. At the same time, I have always struggled with a lot of self-doubt and my mental health. I realized the more I pushed down my feelings, the more they grew. My depression and anxiety became worse because I blamed myself and was ashamed of myself for having those feelings. Once I was able to accept them and learn how to deal with them with more love and more self-compassion, it was really freeing.”
