Alongside massive, yet still quite seriously overlooked powerhouses Dermot Kennedy and Niall Horan, Robert Grace was only the third Irish male solo act to have a top 20 hit in his native country of Ireland last year – and that is for good reason. While he has been releasing records since 2016, Robert Grace finally seems to be catching on on a massive scale. To be totally transparent, before his new single, “Break the Silence”, landed in my inbox, I had never heard or Robert Grace… and once I heard it I was pissed that I am seemingly late to the party.
With his tongue in cheek lyrics, powerful vocals, knack for melody and (from what we hear) incredible stage presence, Robert Grace it without a doubt a force to be reckoned with. Having already blessed stages at Ireland’s leading festivals including Electric Picnic and Indiependence, Robert Grace’s music and aura have been turning heads over and over again. Signed to Columbia Germany, Robert Grace has been building an impressive catalog, having collaborated gnash, KIDDO, KIN, Jamie Hartman (Rag N’ Bone Man), and Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran) over the past several months.
With a platinum record, chart topping stats, millions of streams and an ever-growing fanbase in tow, Robert Grace is slowly but surely proving himself to be the next major mainstream breakout artist from Ireland. He is now on my radar and I will be keeping very close tabs here. You should to the same!
