Gracie Jet has released her new pop ballad called “Bicycle”.
Gracie Jet was born in England, but moved to Ontario, Canada as a young girl. She has spent many years perfecting her craft in the local bar scene, and honing her vocals as well as lyricism. She mainly performed covers of great female artists like Sheryl Crow, Tracey Chapman and the Beatles, amongst others.
“Bicycle” is a love ballad with grand vocals from Gracie, and it builds into a really rich and textured song. It is set with a back story about childhood memories, and reminiscing on the past with a bittersweet lens:
“As a medicine bedside nurse I take care of very ill people but I get to know them and their loved ones. I have watched family members come into the hospital all the time to see their family members who are ill. Some of the admitted patients have dementia, Alzheimer’s or a brain injury and forget the people they love the most which is heartbreaking for the families and staff.”
“If my dad was one of these people, I would tell him of the time he taught me to ride a bike. When I first started learning to ride a bike I fell really badly and hurt my knee. Family’s struggle with the fact that a loved one has forgotten them but they are left with all their memories and scars.”
Gracie has written a powerful ballad about what happens when a family member begins to lose their memory, and the reality of accepting and dealing with it while still moving forward with life.
Many comparisons have been made with Adele; Gracie´s powerful vocals are not only strong, but with a depth and tone that carries a range of emotions.
Equally at home with piano pop and love ballads, Gracie has a passion for her music that really shines through. With a whole album´s worth of original material, Gracie Jet can now launch her career fully as a solo artist.
