Fresh off the back of supporting Haim, Dua Lipa, Jorja Smith, Mabel, Dermot Kennedy + Rag N Bone Man on their recent UK and European tour (with shows at Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy), rising star Grace Carter shares her emotionally charged new video ‘Why Her Not Me’.
As with all Grace’s songs ‘Why Her Not Me’ strikes the listener to the core. Although it’s message could be universal, the meaning behind it is in fact much more personal. ‘Why Her Not Me’ tackles the notion of jealousy and abandonment Grace felt for her father, who’s lack of presence in her early life inspires a lot of her music. The supporting visual follows Grace from a child to an adult, still bearing that pain. Grace sees her music as letters she never got to write and everything she wanted to say but never could until now.
Speaking on the video Grace said:
“I wrote this song about my father choosing another life over raising me. This video represents the literal and emotional journey I took, only to find out he wanted them and not me.Everyone can relate to the feeling of not being good enough and the frustration that comes with that.”
