Australian producer, singer-songwriter Jack Grace is making his US break through. Since his first release “Hills” in 2015, Jack Grace has been making waves, receiving love from tastemakers like Pigeons and Planes, Triple J, Indie Shuffle as well as artists like Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), Flume, Kllo and more for his “gorgeously subversive and off-kilter” (Pigeons and Planes) music that sits somewhere between James Blake, RnB and Arthur Russell.
Preparing for the release of his sophomore EP If I Tremble out April 13th via Of Leisure, the momentum behind Jack’s unique blend of melancholic harmonies and footwork beats continues to grow. Written between Grace’s Sydney home studio, upstate New York and Marseille, France If I Tremble is a study in solitude; discovering lightness through the dark.
Classically trained in piano and jazz, Jack attributes his stylistic decisions to his early childhood piano teacher. “I had a piano teacher who would make me explain why I had played every note I had played… If I couldn’t explain why I had played a note I would have to omit it from the chord even if it sounded ridiculous. Ultimately this approach filtered through everything I did. He taught me how to be intentional and that really affected me.”
Alongside his solo work, Jack Grace is a frequent collaborator working as a producer, arranger and music director, for artists like Ngaiire (‘Blastoma’), BUOY (Immersion + Break eps’) and Christopher Port.
If I Tremble available worldwide April 13th
