Bright beams of enlightenment and vulnerability stream in through indie folk-pop artist Graci Phillips’ music. Her elegantly expressive songs burst forth with pop hooks, sweetly lush orchestral touches, playful and impressionistic lyrics, and broadly resonate themes such as relationships, self-growth, and issues of mental health.
Previously, the Nashville, Tennessee-based artist released her debut album, Catastrophe (2011), which was themed around a high school “first love” breakup. She followed her first release with the six-song collection, Burning House EP. This release’s organic and raw instrumental approach will set the tone for future releases, including her sophomore album which she is currently tracking.
Graci grew up immersed in the freewheeling life of a musician, as her parents are singer-songwriters and took her along on their performing adventures. Graci got her start in a family band, but quickly set out her own distinct path and has grown to be a seasoned live performer in her own right. Select onstage career highlights include performing at the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon for 52,000-plus runners and spectators, and performing for several thousand people in LA at the 2012 ASCAP I Create Music Expo. When she’s not onstage or in the studio, Graci gives back by being a mentor to young female writers through the non-profit Girls Write Nashville.
