Grace Gillespie is an artist and producer based in London who started out as part of the live line-up for 4AD’s Pixx. We have covered her music before - she takes influence from the indie folk and dream-pop traditions, with a twist of wistful lyricism and delicate melodic poise.

Grace released her debut EP "Pretending" in 2019 with support and funding from PRS’s Women Make Music, and the release received widespread critical acclaim from tastemakers like The Line of Best Fit, Clash, and Earmilk. Her tracks have appeared on Spotify’s Fresh Folk playlist and received extensive support from Apple Music. "Goodbye" is a roots-driven pop jam that features acoustic guitar, organic live drums, and a sense of poetic introspection that exudes confidence and restraint. With an unforgettable voice that is equal parts whisper and weep, Gillespie explores a narrative of personal redemption and delivers the nugget of hope that we all so desperately need.

But here I’ve made my bed
And from the ground the sky is bluer than I can forget
But here no place to rest a heavy head
But I’m not tired I am not sleepy
I’m not broken yet
