Grace Lachance is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter from Stittsville, Ontario captured the attention of audiences and industry professionals alike when she was named the winner of the 2015 She’s The One contest at the Ottawa Bluesfest. The contest drew some of the top female vocalists between the ages of 13 and 21 from across Canada, and the judges recognized something special in Grace. Her emotive cover of Kodaline’s “All I Want” and her stunning original composition “Try” earned Grace the opportunity to team up with Universal Music Canada to release her debut single, “Anymore.” The track is an infectious introduction to the talented up-and-coming artist, whose voice and songwriting ability evokes a sense of maturity beyond her years. Grace’s style is multifaceted, combining elements of pop and alternative, with nods to prolific songwriters like James Bay, plus a hint of new country to create a sound that’s all her own. Grace’s career may be just beginning to take off, but she is certainly no stranger to the stage. She began performing in front of her family and friends at a young age, and by the time she was 10, she realized she wanted to take her newfound interest even further. Grace soon found herself performing for captivated audiences around the city of Ottawa.
