Singer-songwriter and vocal powerhouse Grace Davies marks an exciting new era with the release of ‘Wolves’, a rip-roaring power-punch to the past and a life-affirming ode to owning your mistakes. Co-produced with Toby Scott (Becky Hill, Galantis), Grace continues to take the reins as a fully independent artist, showcasing a rawness like never before while maintaining her flair for heavyweight pop songwriting. ‘Wolves’’ is a stomping singalong with a soaring, handclap-backed chorus ready to claim anthem status. Listen here.
Of the track, Grace says: “This is about owning your mistakes and using them as ammunition to power through life. ‘You can run, you can hide, but you need to find your way through the fire’. It’s a power anthem about recovering after a world of shit was thrown at you and believing that if you can get through that then you’re invincible and can get through anything. Having lived with this song for five years, I was excited to get stuck into the production as I’d always had a strong vision for the track”.
‘Wolves’ was written back in the Summer of 2017 (co-written by Grace with David Sneddon and Anu Pillai) the year Grace became the first contestant – and finalist – in X Factor history to showcase original material which also gained numerous Top 10s throughout the competition. Performed in the semi-final, ‘Wolves’ has been a fan-favourite ever since. Grace releases ‘Wolves’ independently, being previously signed to now-defunct label Syco (Sony Music).
The release of the track follows last year’s long-awaited second EP ‘i wonder if you wonder’, a personal collection of tracks which marked Grace’s astounding progress since embracing the journey into releasing independently. Standout release ‘roots’ reached an the Top 3 in the UK iTunes Single Charts, entering the Official Chart Company Top 100 and the UK Big Top 40, as well as gaining plays on BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, Heart & Capital FM along with a raft of regional support. The EP saw Grace reach 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
2020 EP ‘Friends With The Tragic’ confirmed Grace’s reputation as an undeniably talented songwriter. Released via The Orchard, it was written between the UK and Sweden alongside heavyweights Adam Argyle (Dua Lipa), Andrew Jackson (Rag N Bone Man), Duck Blackwell (Louis Tomlinson, Lost Frequencies) and Lauren Aquilina (Rina Sawayama, Demi Lovato, Little Mix).
Grace’s impeccable songwriting talents artfully document the human condition, and with a poet’s ease, her honest lyrics come alive through her unique vocal and haunting melodies which have seen her gain acclaim from the likes of The Times, BBC, PopJustice, Official Charts, MTV, NOTION, Wonderland, DORK and The Line of Best Fit. As well as penning her own tracks, Grace has also undertaken extensive time in the studio writing for her peers, collaborating with the likes of Frances, Lauren Aquilina and Lostboy among many others.
Ever pushing herself, Grace Davies is an all-encompassing musician and a fearless young pop artist who’s showing no signs of slowing down. Stay tuned.
