About Gracie Abrams
Specializing in a stylized, moody modern pop -- a subtly shifting sound partially indebted to Lorde -- singer/songwriter Gracie Abrams cultivated an online following through a steady series of single releases appearing toward the end of the 2010s.
The daughter of movie director J.J. Abrams, Gracie Abrams was born on September 7, 1999. Abrams began playing music when she was eight, starting with drums. Eventually, she picked up guitar, ukulele, and piano. As she entered her adolescence, Abrams built a following through social media, her fan base leading to connections within the industry who were attracted to her early songs "In-Between," "Deep Red," and "And She Will Miss You." After graduating high school in 2018, she enrolled in Barnard College with the intention of majoring in international relations. She maintained her musical career, releasing an EP around the same time.
Abrams began releasing singles on Interscope in 2019, beginning with "Mean It"; "Stay" appeared before the end of the calendar year. In 2020, she issued "21," "I Miss You, I'm Sorry," and "Long Sleeves." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
