Grace VanderWaal

Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, model, philanthropist, high school freshman — Grace VanderWaal contains incredible multitudes. After her star-making turn as the winner of NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2016, VanderWaal has released a best-selling EP, Perfectly Imperfect, and full-length album, Just The Beginning, much to the delight of her millions-strong fanbase and critics alike. Now the New York Times-approved “mature songwriter” and “pop natural” is back with new music for 2019, beginning with a new original song titled “Stray.”

“When I write a song, I don’t really know what they’re about until much later, when I’m like ‘Oh, that’s what my subconscious was trying to say,’” says VanderWaal of her creative process, which begins with songwriting and extends to musical arrangements and visual treatments. “Stray,” which comes with a music video dreamt up by VanderWaal and brought to life with help from director Blythe Thomas, eventually revealed itself to be about “the exhilarating fear and freedom of growing up.” The song features VanderWaal’s soulfully raspy vocals atop a moody, searching sound that’s a departure from her signature airy ukulele riffs.

Introspection and vulnerability have always been hallmarks of VanderWaal’s songwriting, and as she grows older, the unique process of balancing stardom and adolescence has made its way into her work. “I’m maturing really fast and working a lot more, and I feel like when this all first started happening, I almost started to forget how to be myself,” she says. “You only get one you. You get one shot when you’re born, so if you forget, what do you do?” For the time being, the Rockland County raised phenom is handling it all with aplomb. She’s as excited about her upcoming music as she is about her school’s prom, and plans to work at her local movie theater’s concession stand this summer when she’s not headlining another tour, following a string of sold-out headline shows last spring and a summer arena tour opening for Imagine Dragons that she did in 2018.
