UK : So the rumours grow that Grace Savage will be going to Eurovision 2015
It is always one of the biggest questions asked around Europe – Who will represent the UK at Eurovision? We will officially know the answer to the question on Saturday night however one name keeps popping up on social media and that is of the up and coming artist Grace Savage.
So who is Grace Savage?
Grace Savage has twice been crowned the official UK Beatbox Champion. She is quickly establishing a name for herself in the music industry as a distinctive solo artist and since being spotted by producer/songwriter Dee Adam in the summer of 2012, has been working hard in the studio to create the unique sound of her début album.
Fronting a live band Savage has shared the main stage at ‘As One’ festival with the likes of Rita Ora and Katy B, supported Labrinth at Kent Uni Summer Ball, as well as performing a solo set at the Rumshack at Glastonbury festival last summer. Grace supported Newton Faulkner on his UK tour, which culminated in her playing two nights at the Shepherds Bush Empire. #Impressive
Grace has recently been chosen by Elle magazine as one of the ‘Top 100 inspiring women’ as part of their feminism issue, December 2014. You may have seen her on stage in the role of ‘Jade’ in a revival of ‘Home’ at The National Theatre back in 2013.
The Guardian recently ran a feature on Grace and promoted her solo theatre show ‘Blind’, which she co-created with The Paper Birds Theatre Company . She appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a huge success.
The video for the UK’s release was shot recently and will be aired this Saturday. The makeup artists involved in the shoot tweeted
Then following an interview that Grace gave to Pledge Music this tweet was sent out and Grace herself was liking it – Hmmmmmm. Either riding the wave of speculation or subtly not confirming while at the same time hinting 😉
Ad to this that Grace’s new EP is being released in 42 days time – hey that is nice Eurovision timing if I may say so myself!
Now an act like Grace Savage would fit very much into the vibe that Guy Freeman is trying to create with the UK at Eurovision following him taking control of the BBC last year and with selection Molly.
We love this tweet from the Official Eurovision Twitter Account
So what do you think of Grace Savage for Eurovision? Would she be an interesting choice for the contest? is Eurovision and the UK Fans ready for some Beatboxing in Vienna. I certainly hope so!
