Today, Newcastle singer-songwriter, and Tip Jar song competition winner, Paris Grace releases her long-awaited debut EP. We caught up with the local artist to chat about the recording process and her inspirations.
The release, called Oceans Carry Me Home, features four songs including the single, Oceans which Paris says is inspired by her affinity with the coast that has become synonymous with her life and music.
“The Ocean inspires me because it is my safe place,” Paris says.
The single is a dreamy acoustic number dripping in reverb and showcases Paris’ powerful voice and evolution in songwriting.
“I’ve been constantly writing to improve my craft, taking lessons on instruments such as guitar and piano. Also watching my favourite artists perform and taking inspiration from them and applying it”.
Pairs says working with Jack Tuckerman, who produced all four tracks on the release, took her initial creations to places she never expected.
“Working with Jack was super eye-opening as he is a master of his art. He brought a new flavour to my original thoughts which then created the final sound.” Paris told Newcastle Live.
All four songs from Oceans Carry Me Home are available now on Spotify, Tik Tok, Apple Music, iTunes and Shazam. You can check out the Spotify feed below.
