Introducing Grace de Gier originally from Colombia but now based in The Netherlands. She is a singer/ songwriter of Spanish Pop Rock who has a brand new single “No Estas” which is out now.
This lead off single brings her influences together under one tent, transmuting them through her own experience and talents, and thereby producing a uniquely individualistic yet familiar slice of musical art.
“No Estas” has commercial appeal, but it’s far from pure pop – there’s a brightly burning rock and roll flame at the core of the track. She’s surrounded herself with a cadre of top-flight accompanists who play to the song rather than attempting to glom off some of Grace’s moment to shine. Shine she does. “No Estas” more than adequately conveys the confidence and sensuality behind so much of the tune and stands as a wonderfully complete first expression of identity from a singer, songwriter, and performer we’ll undoubtedly be hearing more from in the years to come.
The song has a hell of a production job setting it apart from the work her contemporaries do. Grace sounds like a throwback of sorts, equal parts pop superstar in the making and backbreaker singer with ample soul to burn, and the way she possesses a song is reminiscent of the greatest singers, male and female alike.
We decided to catch up with Grade de Gier for an exclusive interview on Camden Monthly….
