Little Grace Q&A

We’re Little Grace.

Where are you from?
All based around the Liverpool area, the majority of us are from a small industrial town called Widnes.

Who is in your band? 
There are five of us;
Ben and Adam Harrison, both of whom bring the vocals, Mike Doyle is the guitarist, Callum Horridge plays bass and Peter Kirby is our drummer.

How would you describe yourselves?
We do introduce ourselves as a pop/soul/R&B band, although recently we’ve been working on a more electric sound, but still we still sit quite comfortably into the pop genre.

Who are your main influences musically?
When it comes to song writing we are heavily influenced by the likes of John Legend, but as individuals our influences range from Marvin Gaye to Mike Skinner.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
At the moment we’re striding to get our music heard, that being by the industry, or by general listeners. But we’ve always been interested in the likes of Radio 1, so it would mean a huge amount to us if we ever had a play on there. We’re also quite into the collaborations, but we would be here all night listing who we’d like to collab with.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Within the past six months we have recorded and released our debut self-titled EP, which has been one of the greatest experiences for us so far, as well as it being an amazing time we all learnt a tremendous amount from it, so its something we’ll never forget. We’re also lined up to play The Great British R&B Festival later in August, which we’re sure will be a great experience.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
There aren’t that many to be fair. There was that one time we set out for a gig in York, and about two minutes into the journey we discovered that a Corsa isn’t built to take a full band (with gear) on a 100-mile round trip.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
We have a tune on Little Grace called ‘Past Time History’, which is most probably the closest representation of us that we have recorded. Although the song isn’t actually written about a personal experience, it’s more based on an idea or a story if you would.

Where can we listen to it? 
All of our music is available from the following links!  (Or @littlegraceuk (same for Instagram))

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
Thanks for this opportunity! It really does mean a lot, keep up the good work!
