ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 75 Isaac Gracie

The start of the new year is always filled with promise and expectation, so it is no wonder all the newcomers seem to want to push themselves as far as possible over the next few weeks. Which is probably why we haven't stopped hearing about Isaac Gracie since before 2016 even began.

Despite only a single song to his name so far, that one song ('Last Words') has already grabbed the attention of a number of tastemakers. Being named as 'Track Of The Week' by Annie Mac for Radio 1 and landing Gracie in NME's Ones To Watch list for the year ahead, 'Last Words' is that beautiful fusion between heart-wrenching soul and a solemn pretence that could move some of the hardest heads to tears.

Gaining comparisons to the likes of Jeff Buckley and Kurt Cobain, his voice has this timeless quality that could surely find him as one of the most in-demand artists for the year ahead.
