Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Grace has been singing and playing piano since she was 3. Music was a big part of her life growing up. Her father, Jim Spencer, a long time songwriter and producer, has had a key influence on her decision to write and record. When Grace was 7 he took her to many of the recording sessions for one of his albums, which sparked a deeper interest in music. And when she was 15 she began writing music and decided she wanted to record.
Her first release was an EP in 2015, followed by a full-length album at the end of 2016 titled, Where I Belong. She then continued to write and pursue her solo music, as well as tour with and play in her family’s band, Spencer Family Music, and perform some of her songs in their concerts.
In 2018 she released a single each quarter, 4 songs total. Grace feels like that experience was a pivotal point in her career. It allowed her to hone in on the style of music that fits her voice and writing best, and grow in her knowledge of how to release songs in the ever-changing music industry. A few of the singles also received radio play on stations around the US, and Strength and Here With Usť were added to Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian playlist which has over 100,000 followers.
Grace has been anticipating and working towards a sophomore album for a couple of years, and that album is now on the verge of releasing. With You, her second full-length studio record, is set to release May 31. These new songs touch on a wide variety of subjects such as confidence, not wasting our lives, letting go of the past, and much more.
She is very passionate about the messages the album contains and is hopeful this release will expand the borders of her music to more people than ever and bring joy, encouragement, and hope to those who listen.
