Four years after her Grammy win for penning Chance the Rapper’s “All We Got” (featuring Kanye West and the Chicago Children’s Choir), singer, songwriter and producer Grace Weber’s debut solo album A Beautiful Space (June 11) showcases a powerful independent artist with a sound so poignant it shatters the stratosphere. After parting ways with Capitol at the end of 2019, Grace found her voice. Even her album cover—inspired by The Wizard of Oz—projects an artist who’s at peace and strength, though unlike Dorothy, she’s not lazing amongst the poppies, she’s acknowledging it’s her moment to honor us with her brilliant and gifted light.
“Making this album, I decided that I would let it take us on a journey, instead of trying to force anything,” she says. “I’d love for people to come away feeling like they’ve been taken on a journey too, whatever that might mean for them. Hopefully it’ll help them uncover deeper parts of themselves that they maybe hadn’t understood before — all the little contradictions that make us the complicated and beautiful people we are.”
Here’s a day in the life of Grace Weber.
