In the less than three years following the release of her first EP “Minor” (2020), singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams has demonstrated both growth and consistency in the indie-pop space. Sonically, Abrams’ music has drastically evolved since her first EP, which largely focused on short, repeated melodies and simple lo-fi production. Her debut full-length album “Good Riddance” (2023) represents the personal and musical growth evident in Abrams’ career journey over the past few years, featuring more complex melodies and ballads which combine indie, rock and pop genres masterfully. Abrams imbues her art with vulnerable and direct storytelling, and her performances are not an exception.
