Grace Carter has the same management as Dua Lipa and Lana Del Rey. But that's where the similarities end. Carter’s style has more in common with Nina Simone and Lauryn Hill. A mix of solid soul and melodious hip-hop. The British singer started making music when she got a guitar from her stepfather. It became a type of therapy. Carter was a restless child and music helped her express her frustrations. She now wants to help others with her songs. The handful of songs that she has already released betrays great musical maturity. Carter doesn't really break the rules but she's so good that she doesn't have to. She is the well-deserved number 3 on the BBC Sound of 2019, a list of talented newcomers that is drawn up every year by an international panel of 150 judges.
