WOW! – that was the first impression we got after first coming across 16-year-old Portland-based singer/songwriter Grace Mitchell, who we are quite convinced will soon become one of your new favorite artist of 2014 (as she has just become one of ours), especially after you listen to her two, rather intriguing new songs, “Your Design” and “Broken Over You”. Probably best known for her cover of Hall & Oates’ number 1 hit single “Maneater”, which appeared on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty soundtrack, Grace Mitchell has just been chosen by Pigeons and Planes as their Daily Discovery and is rapidly gaining additional support from the likes of Hillydilly, SoulBounce and disco naïveté, among others. Needless to say, Grace Mitchell is a very promising new artist who has a lot to offer and we simply cannot wait to see (and hear) what the future has in store for this talented newcomer.
Grace Mitchell – Your Design
Broken Over You and Your Design are both mid-tempo numbers yet they escalate into huge chorus’ and melody-laden bridges. She sounds far beyond her years, presenting two songs that sit somewhere in between Robyn‘s glowing alt-pop and Lorde’s goth-pop.
