Eliza Grace is an Alternative/Indie-Pop artist, viral youtuber and songwriter. The North Carolina native shortened and changed her name after her 18th birthday when she drove from the Atlantic Ocean, to the Pacific Ocean to finally land in Los Angeles, California. To outfit a life in her car and pursue her dreams.
In 2018, she teamed up with producer Cameron Pierce Mizell who’s played an integral role in the post-hardcore genre over the last decade (Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis Mayfire, Slaves) and released "Wormwood". A collection of songs written over a decade during some of the most turbulent chapters of her life. Leaving the record with complete authenticity through lyrics, melodies, and feelings. The album had a featured write up in Alt Press magazine as well as Floated, and New Noise Magazine. Earning an early comparison to Halsey, Lights and Paramore.
Following that record was a collection of singles. “Fossils”, “Ghost”, “Long Suffering” and last but not least, “Love To Hate”. A single co-written and produced by multi platinum award winning record producer, David Bendeth. The song premiered with a music video via Alt Press Magazine ft. Estella Rose. A multi award winning 12 year old dancer from Nashville, TN. Bringing both darkness and innocence to life.
Roughly six months later Eliza comes back with her first full length record “Happysad”. Once again joining forces with Cameron Pierce MIzell. Given her diverse nature, the record was written and tracked from start to finish across the entire country during the Coronavirus pandemic. In and out of airbnb’s, cabins, and hotel rooms. Leaving no room for a lack of inspiration.
“The record can be described as launching your feelings off of cliffs in the best and worst way possible. To me, during the pandemic, the thing humanity needed most was to be cheered up. And that’s what this record is about” the vocalist says.
Aside from her self written, therapeutic lyrics, and melodies. She showcases the multi instrumentalist that lives inside of her featuring the Banjo, Guitar, and Piano. Leaving the album as not an escape around your thoughts, but a way through them.
"Happysad" is Eliza's debut full length record. With that in mind, the record couldn't be a better first impression to the world of her true identity. This record is a complete stream of conscience that endures freedom, loneliness, coming of age and provokes thoughts of what it means to have a human experience. All in the summary of the album title, "Happysad".
Eliza teamed up with producer Cameron Pierce MIzell (Sleeping With Sirens, Slaves, Memphis May Fire),who has played an integral role in the post-hardcore genre over the last decade.) And through this collaboration and influences like Bleachers, Halsey, and Elton John. The two birthed a fun, dreamy, whimsical and sensitive album with a song to sweep everyone off their feet. Or possibly bring them to tears.
