Country up-and-comer Grace Leer has officially released her debut self-titled EP. The project, consisting of seven songs, was produced by Dan Fernandez, Jared Hampton (LANCO) and Daniel Agee. A visualizer for the focus track “The One,” written by Mike Walker, Joey Hyde and Shelby Darrall, was also released.
Three new tracks are available, including “The One,” a heartbreaking ballad reflecting on love and loss, “Meant To Be,” an emotional breakup song, and “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere,” a cover of Dwight Yoakam’s classic track. The project is available HERE.
“It’s been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to record and release music. This is definitely a “pinch me” moment that I get to put out my first project,” says Leer. “These songs are a look at my heart and my life, things I personally went through as well as influences of country music I listened to growing up. So many people went into this project and it is something we are all very proud to share to the world!”
When she isn’t singing her heart out, fans can often find Leer doing something else she loves – spending time creating delicious eats in the kitchen! Back in the summer of 2020, Leer cooked a meal as fans joined her on her Instagram live. The overwhelming response resulted in a new tradition, where she has created a series – named by the help of fans – called “Taste with Grace.” She decided it was only right to release a digital cookbook in addition to her new EP. The cookbook and video tutorials will be released soon.
“Taste with Grace was created by my fans and I could not release this debut EP without releasing my first-ever cookbook to share with them! I can’t wait for people to make these recipes while blasting my songs in their kitchen!”
In honor of her project release, Leer will be celebrating with a fan and industry party at Westin Nashville’s L27 Rooftop Lounge next Wednesday, September 21st.
