All of a sudden, Gracie Abrams is looking like, and sounding like, one of the most promising and talented artists of her generation. Quite the statement, we know. But the 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Los Angeles has a lot going for her. She's captivated millions of listeners with her honest and heartfelt pop songs, which range from upbeat and catchy to melancholic and introspective, and her debut album, Good Riddance, released on February 24, 2023, has earned both critical acclaim and commercial success. She has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Benny Blanco, Aaron Dessner, and Taylor Swift, for whom Abrams opened (among others) on Taylor's recent tour. She's also headlined her own string of sold-out shows on domestic and international stops.
