Über Isaac Gracie
21-year-old British musician Isaac Gracie has the world at his feet. Growing up in Ealing, the son of poet, Judith Gracie, Isaac wrote his first songs at the age of fourteen. Inspired by familiar greats in the Buckleys, Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan, Isaac had an instinctive knack for writing a devastating melody, and a voice honed to precision.
Studying English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, Isaac uploaded a self-produced Garageband demo to BBC Introducing in the Summer of 2015 (the latter day equivalent of farming out CD demos or MySpace links to ‘the industry’). The song in question was called Last Words, a dusty lament aided by the crackle and hiss of inexperience, and some 100,000 plays later (+ top spot on Spotify’s UK viral chart), its creator’s journey is about to get started.
Over the course of his debut EP, Songs From My Bedroom, released on ltd. vinyl in May, you get a very real idea for who Isaac is, and ultimately where he will be going. It sounds exactly what it is, recorded at home with the same limited equipment that made Last Words such a moment, and with the same sense of tenderness and atmosphere.
Isaac Gracie is the real deal. No question.
