UK native Henry Grace started making music at a young age and was already writing fully fledged songs by the time he was thirteen. His music career, however, did not really take flight until he moved to Los Angeles when he was twenty-one. He started out playing small clubs in Venice Beach before moving on to play many of California's most storied venues. In 2016, he released his debut EP, Crash The Moon, which gained him the attention of Guild Guitars among others. The EP's title track is centered around Henry's long but successful battle with depression during his late teens and early twenties. His sophomore EP, What We Took from the Mountain, was released in 2018 and documents Henry's journey in America—with songs such as Missouri infinitely demonstrating a departure from the English fields of his youth to something ultimately bigger and less familiar.
