At the tender age of just seventeen, Lily Grace is an extremely talented artist, songwriter and storyteller. Already turning industry heads, collaborating with iconic Australian artists, supporting artists such as Vance Joy, and drawing strong crowds, this Gold Coast Australian native is one of the most exciting female artists to emerge in recent years. With her relaxed, easy-listening style and warm and natural stage presence, this vibrant songstress leaves audiences transfixed by her talent, her young age, and her unique style.
Naturally gifted, Lily Grace began singing at 10 years of age. She dived deeper into music five years ago when she was gifted her first guitar. Her determination led her to performing at local markets, and soon after, attracting her to local cafes, restaurants, events and festivals. Her love for performing and following her country music dream came true when she released a collaboration with acclaimed Australian artist James Blundell entitled Annie June. The excitement around the track helped it reach the Top 10 on the ‘Australian Country Radio’ chart, #17 on the ‘Hottest Australian Country Hits’ chart, #9 on ‘Country Radio Charts,’ and #31 on the ‘Countrytown Hot 50 Music Chart’. The official music video was played in high rotation on Foxtel’s & Fetch CMT TV channel reaching #3 in ‘Today’s Top 15,’ and was also featured in ‘Official Top 30,’ ‘Fresh Country,’ and ‘Aussie Country’ programs.
Off the heels of this successful release, a debut solo single, Sixteen Wishes, was next. Within the first week, it was the #1 streamed and downloaded song for Australian radio airplay. This song also rocketed to #3 on the Australian Country iTunes Chart and #27 on the Australian All Genres iTunes Chart. The official music video caught the attention from CMT in Australia, which led to adding it to their playlist and the song charted in the CMT Official Top 30, reaching #13.
Inspired by the likes of Dan + Shay, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban, Luke Combs, Maddie & Tae, Taylor Swift and Maren Morris, this wholesome artist strives to embody their innovative style, work ethic, and sound in her own unique way. With several years of stage experience already under her belt, she recently opened for Vance Joy at his Australian Brisbane Riverstage concert, and she has performed and toured with several big names in the Australian country music scene including Amber Lawrence, Catherine Britt, Tania Kernaghan, and James Blundell. She thrives for the moments when she connects with her fans. “My songs revolve around storytelling.” Lily takes her dreams, first-hand experiences and stories she hears along the way and turns them into songs that connect with her audience.
When she is not strumming her six-string or on the road performing, this teenager is in school. While balancing school and music, Lily understands and prioritises her time while making sacrifices to allow her journey and music career to unfold. Recent winner of the 2022 Gold Coast Music Awards ‘Peoples Choice’ award, and finalist for ‘Breakout Artist of the Year’, Lily Grace is already headlining her own shows, and rapidly earning the recognition she deserves, having performed on main stages of the 2022 Gympie Muster, the 2021 Groundwater Country Music Festival, and Tamworth Country Music Festival. She exhibits an undeniable warmth as an artist, and her strong, 80,000+ loyal fan base is evidence of this.
A finalist in the Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards in several categories this year, including Best Female Vocalist, Most Promising Future Star and Best Video, she was awarded Best Video for her single ‘Annie June’. Earlier this year, she was nominated in 9 categories of the 2022 Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards and took away awards for both ‘Country Song of the Year’ and ‘Country Rock Song of the Year’.
With determination, confidence, and passion to create real and honest music, she released her latest single ‘The Two Of Us Meet’ in Australia and to the USA, growing her international following significantly. Her successful release has seen the song hit over 1 million streams, reach #1 on ‘iTunes Australia Country Chart’, #11 on ‘iTunes Australia All Genres Chart’, #1 on ‘Country Thunder’, #5 on ‘Australian Independent Record Labels Association Chart’, #6 on the ‘Oz Country Music Radio Tasmania Chart’, #9 on ‘Hottest Australian Country Hits’ and #12 on ‘Country Radio Charts.’ In the USA, the song debuted on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart at #78 and rose into the Top 30 on the Music Row Indie Chart, placing at #23. CMT Australia added the music video to high rotation and the track rose to #11 on the CMT Top 30 Chart.
The demand for her music in the USA has drawn her over to Nashville this year, where she spent over 6 weeks doing radio interviews, television appearances, podcasts, songwriting, recording, and performing. She performed at Live on the Levee in Charlston, West Virginia, and toured with the Davisson Brothers Band, as well as performing at the Barefoot Country Music Festival in Wildwoods, New Jersey; Freedom Fest in Monterey, Tennessee; songwriter’s rounds at the iconic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee; and other well-known Nashville songwriter venues. The future of this young artist certainly looks bright.
