GRACE MITCHELL
GRACE MITCHELL
Grace is a force to be reckoned with. She has two major defining physical features that make her immediately recognizable, be it in the low light of a crowded East Village Bar or a bungalow at the Chateau Marmont. Amazonian in height, she glides above the crowd, with a stature suited to her larger than life personality and commanding stage presence. A head above the rest, her voluminous red hair frames her statuesque features and piercing blue eyes. She is a lean lioness on the prowl, the likes of which would have made Jim Morrison swoon. She is slinky and mysterious, yet approachable and charismatic. Her witty, youthful spirit and wise composure perfumes her with the sweet nostalgia of a John Hughes movie. Turning heads across rooms, clad in her well-worn leather jacket, she draws in bystanders like a moth to a cigarette flame. Captivated by her swift, decisive movements, and undeniable charm, you can’t help but think you’ve seen her before on television, in a tabloid, or on the cover of your favorite vintage Playboy. 
Looks and character aside, her golden voice is incomparable. She sings with total conviction and absolute sincerity. Her voice is both archetypal and androgynous. She sings with the fire and passion of a true rock and roller and with the beautifully constructed, effortless melodies of the most seasoned pop performer. Her husky, warm inflection sounds like falling back into a plush velvet couch with a whiskey rocks in hand. She uses her uniquely dynamic voice to project devastating, impassioned notes and calls, and then in the next second, dramatically croons like a Southern harlot. She slips in and out of mysteriously alluring and colorful characters all while maintaining the utmost sincerity. Her inflections never feel like a put on, but rather, with each note she invites the listener to peel back the many layers of her endlessly fascinating mind.
This same multidimensional quality can be applied to her vast musical prowess. The music is daring, fresh, and free of era. She is a force to be reckoned with both as a writer and a producer in the studio. Grace marries chaotic, at times schizophrenic synth-based production with live instrumentation and melodies reminiscent of the best 90’s grunge, and indie-rock heroines. Mitchell’s music takes you by the hand and leads you on a trip through space and time. Listening, you could find yourself in a neighborhood coffee shop, hungover and alive with your memories from the night. Groggily tipping back black coffee and sorting through the foggy morning. Next you might find yourself in the basement of a Brooklyn Warehouse; speakers blaring post-apocalyptic guitar strokes with hip hop overtones. The kaleidoscope of Mitchell’s sonic intuition folds together into a precise materialization that is her first debut album. Across the tracks of her record, the prolific artist presents an unrelenting set of boundless, genre-defying pop songs. She captivates listeners with fully immersive anthems provoking in their catchiness and alluring in their tastefulness.
