About the EP Mckenna says, “I’m so happy to finally be releasing this ep! I’m excited for everyone to finally hear them. Getting into music has really been a dream. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve learned a lot about myself. Music has been a different type of creative outlet for me. It’s way more personal. Writing has been therapy, it’s been really heart breaking and I’ve cried writing and listening to songs, but it has also been fun and has brought me so much joy. I hope ya’ll love this project as much as I do and dance around your house” Of the single release Grace adds, “”Buzzkill Baby” is definitely one of my favorite songs on here, and I’m really excited for people to be able to jam out to it. I hope anyone who listens to my music and can relate to the darker feelings will know that eventually it passes and it’s normal and okay to feel things- happy, sad, angry, lonely, frustrated…just don’t give up.”

The +45M streaming rising musician continues to receive tremendous fan and industry attention, including Mckenna’s upcoming interviews with Brooke Reese on Apple 1 Music. and online profiles in Teen Vogue, People and Paste Magazines. The Bittersweet 16 EP release follows a fast-growing musical fan base for Grace which earlier this month included rave reviews for Grace’s sold-out performance at Los Angeles’ Moroccan Lounge.  To read more here.
