The Story So Far

Grace's Journey

It was 2008 when Grace Mae received a pink microphone for her 3rd Birthday, the rest they say is history. Fast forward to 2013 when winning her first talent quest led her to start taking her love of music more seriously.

"I remember performing in the end of year show in kindergarten and thinking that music and performing were going to be an important part of my life."

Two years later and Grace graduated the prestigious Junior Academy of Country Music in Tamworth as the youngest vocalist and bought her fist Cole Clark guitar and in January 2016 she set off for the Tamworth Country Music Festival. The vibe, the people and all that the festival bought started her on her journey as a music artist.

With her acceptance at a performing arts school and further years of experience in performance, winning multiple awards at Country Music Festivals, recording and playing live Grace returned to the Junior Country Music Academy in 2019 and subsequent 2020 festival, appearing on stage for 13 performances including the Tamworth Songwriters Showcase as a finalist, Junior Academy Showcase and sharing the stage with Amber Lawrence at her album launch for 'Spark'.

For over five years Grace has been gigging up and down the south coast of the Illawarra, leaving audiences amazed by the talent of this young artist and captivated by her unique sound and emotive performances of originals and covers.

2020 was a very reflective year for Grace and the pandemic and spare time allowed her to develop some of the materials that she had been working on.

'The Music Goes On' and 'Skipped a Beat' are representative of a young wave of country music that we can relate to and introduces Grace Mae as the 'girl next door' artist that everyone wants to get to know.

Grace Mae has had the most support and guidance of some of country music's most accomplished artists and this is increasingly evident in this new music. Together with Grace Mae's high energy, honest and down to earth personality, she has the talent, drive, and ambition to become one of the next new voices in Australian country music.

Biography

Grace's Story

Grace Mae is a young aspiring singer, songwriter and musician who has a love of all things music. The NSW South Coast based artist supports local children’s activities with music performances and workshops and sharing her story, encouraging others to also have big dreams and chase them.


The aspiring country singer is a multi-award winner, but winning an open mic night in Wollongong in 2017, allowed her to develop one of her original songs, Not Today, into a single that was released on Apple Music and Spotify in August 2018.


Since then, she has continued to develop her own unique style of writing and performing, her song; It Doesn’t Matter Anyway was a finalist in the Tamworth Songwriters competition
in January 2020. Grace graduated from the CMAA Academy of Country Music in 2016 as their youngest vocalist, attending again in 2019 she co-wrote her song Red with Fanny Lumsden, and in January 2021, attended Academy X online.

 

The singer-songwriter has performed at a number of venues during the Tamworth Country Music Festival and was the youth finalist for the TASMA Entertainment Awards, but the final was cancelled due to COVID-19.


The pandemic has bought about plenty of time to write new material, and Grace has been busy recording with Josh Schuberth at Endomusia Productions preparing for a double single release towards the end of the year.

 

Grace is very excited to be booked to play at the 50th Tamworth Country Music Festival this year. You can connect with Grace on socials @ Grace Mae Music.
