Emerging Artist

All in the family! Grace (Debut #24) is the also-talented-sister of fellow Emerging Artist Conrad Sewell (#35), who we profiled on January 21st. Grace’s debut EP, Memo, came out via RCA Records last spring. The Quincy-freaking-Jones-produced single You Don’t Own Me (ft. G-Eazy) was a big-time hit Down Under last year. Now that the cover of the classic 1963 Leslie Gore (and Jones-produced) song is making its way to U.S. audiences it has the extra boost of featuring the red-hot Bay Area rapper.

Puff Daddy also played a hand in her initial Atlanta recording sessions and her debut album, due out this spring, features writing and production contributions from some other big names. The cut Dirty Harry shows a grittier flow for her strong voice, she straight raps on The Honey, and Boyfriend Jeans further showcases her R&B chops.
