The New Graces

Thu 8 Jul

The New Graces weave tales of farmers, mothers, lovers, the ordinary and the mysterious.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Melanie Horsnell, Kate Burke and Robyn Martin deliver exquisite three-part harmonies, with a little desert heat-haze that could only be Australian. Between them, they weave tales of farmers, hippies, mothers, lovers, the ordinary and the mysterious. The New Graces stormed the Australian music scene, with their debut album ‘Seasons’ peaking at #1 on the ARIA Australian Country Album Charts and receiving 4 x CMAA Golden Guitar nominations in 2021.

Flavoured with guitar, double bass, mandolin, fiddle and banjo, their songs tell stories of their Australia; desert country steeped in history, wild bush dances, snowy mountains and remote swimming holes. Generations of family life on the land, waking up in a sunny Sydney bedroom and returning to a favourite old pub to play music with friends.

Their new single ‘How Am I Supposed To Be A Mother’ is the first of 3 tracks from The New Graces Open Heart Sessions. Written by Melanie Horsnell, ‘How Am I Supposed To Be A Mother’ explores life as woman and mother in these current times; a conversational, honest and incredibly human song that captures the balance of a mother’s self-doubt, instinct and hope, all underpinned by love.
