Named an artist to watch by Pigeons & Planes, Fader, and iD — and crowned one of seven breakout female musicians by Vogue UK — Gracie Abrams considers herself a songwriter, first and foremost. After writing her first song at the age of eight, she went on to earn a devoted following on the strength of her indelibly personal lyrics and magnetic vocal delivery. Through the years, Abrams shared homespun clips of her songs on social media, amassing over 390k followers on Instagram before she’d even released her first track. In October 2019, Abrams made her official debut with the intensely vulnerable song “Mean It.” Released in July, Gracie’s debut project minor features her beloved singles “21,” “I miss you, I’m sorry,” and “Long Sleeves.” The seven-song project drew praise from outlets like Ones To Watch, who noted that “Abrams encourages her listeners to acknowledge every ugly feeling that bubbles up, revel in it, and accept that it's okay to feel this way.” Executive-produced by Slatkin, minor also found Abrams collaborating with producer/songwriters like Joel Little, Benny Blanco, Jim-E Stack, Sarah Aarons, and Caroline Pennell.
