Hi Grace, you just came off stage and opened the last day of Rock Werchter. How was it?
It was amazing and so good. I didn’t know what to expect, because we did Glastonbury yesterday and had an early flight this morning. I was very tired, but was so happy that so many people showed up and some were even singing the words. I’ve been in Belgium once before for a small show and it’s so nice to see that people are enjoying my music.
Do you prefer the intimate shows or the big crowds?
It’s a very different experience. When you’re doing an intimate show, you can see people’s emotion, faces and reactions. Standing on a big stage just feels epic, because in my music, I truly love the big sounds. I feel like it is elevated on a big stage.
Big stages are coming for sure, because you became third in BBC’s Sound of 2019. Did that put any pressure on you?
I just don’t ever think about that. The main thing for me is that I want to have a good time. I’ve been writing music since I was twelve, so it was an honor to get such a place in the Sound of 2019 poll. I didn’t expect it, so I’m kind of taking it day by day and try to have as much fun as possible.
