“Five Minutes With” Toronto singer/songwriter GRAE

Writing music since the age of 10, GRAE began her musical journey after relocating to Australia for 9 months and building local buzz through a series of stand out shows at a number of intimate cafes and tiny venues. Now with a growing following she is ready to share her unique sound. GRAE’s debut EP will be coming later this year, produced by UK based singer-songwriter KYAN. Expect infectious pop hooks, smokey vocals and an infusion of jazz, doused in female empowerment.
