At 16 years old, Grace Weber brought the impossibly judgmental Apollo Theatre to its feet. Born and raised in Milwaukee with a naturally soulful voice, and a love of gospel, r&b and soul music, Grace grew up singing in the Central City Youth Gospel Choir of Milwaukee, before gaining widespread recognition for her performance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and later self releasing her album The Refinery, which reached #5 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. Grace has opened for James Blake and Elle King among others, and sang the National Anthem at Giants Stadium to 82,000 fans.
Grace is currently working on her new album with producers Nate Fox, Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal and Peter Cottontale of the Social Experiment, and recently co-wrote and sang with Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, Francis Starlite and the Chicago Children’s Choir on 'All We Got', the introductory track to Chance the Rapper’s critically acclaimed, chart-topping 'Coloring Book'. 'All We Got' charted at number 4 on Apple Music the first weekend after its release, and streamed over 5 million times across all streaming platforms during its first month after release.
Grace is signed to Big Mouth Records, with plans for an early 2017 album release.
"Old soul with new boogie shoes... If Grace looks familiar, you might have previously seen her on Oprah, Showtime at the Apollo, or SXSW."
"What I love about Grace... she has the ability to cross in and out of soul music, hip-hop vibes, gospel music, alternative & singer-songwriter... she mixes it all together."
- 88Nine Radio Milwaukee program director Jordan Lee, discussing Grace's appearance on Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book
"Nate and Nico were working on this record with Grace Weber, who I am in love with both musically and otherwise, she’s the best... I heard this [record], and I said, 'this is it, this is exactly what I need.'"
- Chance the Rapper, talking to Zane Lowe on Apple Beats 1 Radio
