Gracie Nash is a singer/songwriter based in New York City who counts The Beatles, Billy Joel, Motown, Disco, Joni Mitchell, Carol King and ELO as influences. She was raised on Classic Rock radio and has been in love with the golden eras of the’50s, ‘60s and ‘70s ever since. The songs from this era allowed Nash to escape from the complex school dynamics she experienced by giving her hope, comfort and courage. By tying together poetic lyrics, enchanting harmonies, lush orchestrations, and catchy melodies Gracie weaves musical stories through song. She graduated from NYU Steinhardt with a Master’s Degree in songwriting. She is a featured singer with the string group Little Krupa, as well, and teaches private lessons for guitar/voice/ukelele/songwriting and is a teaching artist with the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
Today sees the release of Nash’s new single and accompanying video for “The Belly Song”. Says Nash, “I wrote “The Belly Song” when I realized I was tired of being ashamed of my beautiful, natural belly! Growing up I struggled with my weight and my body image, and it was really hard for me to truly love and accept my body. I wanted to write a song that helped me & everyone celebrate their bellies and their bodies. I also wanted the song to be kid-friendly, so that when young people listened to it they could feel proud of their bodies! I was highly inspired by the body positive community. When it came to the music video I wanted to highlight our time in the studio. There were so many musicians and singers that came to add to the track–and everyone had such a fun time making music & celebrating their bellies!”.
