By age 16, Grace Mitchell broke with her downtempo, R&B-influenced cover of Hall & Oates’ “Maneater” for the soundtrack to THE TRICK Life of Walter Mitty. The Portland, Oregon-born Mitchell — who has tips, drums, and guitars — agreed upon with Casablanca/Republic in 2013 and relocated to LA. Her debut EP, Style, premiered in Oct 2014. Made by Morgan Taylor Reid (Female Gaga, RedOne), the four-song collection got a mature, refined vibe like the alt-pop of Lorde and Banking institutions. Her rich tone of voice carried tracks like “Runaway” and “Your Style” into early Lana Del Rey place. Her follow-up, Raceday, premiered in November 2015. That EP was made by Tag Foster (of Foster individuals) and Affluent Costey (Muse, Traveling Lotus, Of Monsters and Guys) and highlighted “NoLo” as well as the buzzed-about strike “Jitter,” a throwback electro monitor with bounce components as well as some Peaches-esque rapping. In early 2017 Mitchell released a set of singles, the bruising “Children (Ain’t FINE)” as well as the ’80s-design pop anthem “Today,” in expectation from the late-summer discharge of her debut long-player.
