American singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams rose to fame through her emotion-filled music and lyrics and has been nominated for Best New Artist for the 2024 Grammy Awards.

American singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams rose to fame through her emotion-filled music and lyrics and has been nominated for Best New Artist for the 2024 Grammy Awards.

 Abrams was born and raised in Los Angeles and began songwriting and playing music at eight years old. She then started releasing music to SoundCloud when she was 13 years old. Abrams grew a following on social media by posting covers and original songs. After, Abrams signed to Interscope Records in 2019 and released her debut single “Mean it” the same year. Her first EP “minor” was later released in 2020 and her song “I Miss You I’m Sorry” from the EP is currently her most streamed song on Spotify. Abrams quickly grew in popularity with her latest album “Good Riddance,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers albums and has over 10 million streams on Spotify.

Abrams’ songs fall into the genre of “sad girl indie” and her debut album “Good Riddance” is a collection of melancholic songs that delve into themes of complicated relationships and personal accountability.

“I think a lot of my songwriting in the past almost placed blame on others before reflecting on my own role in a situation,” Abrams said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “With Good Riddance, I wanted to grow out of that really desperately. I wanted to be more thoughtful and more accountable.”

She has also opened for popular artists including Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift. Abrams has big things ahead of her with her Grammy nomination and upcoming tour, where she will be accompanying Taylor Swift again on her “Eras Tour” as an opener later this year. Her fans are excited to see her future work and how she progresses in the industry.
