Listen Now To SAYGRACE – Priorities
Baby girl, it is time to check your priorities. In a song inspired by a choice many women have to make, SAYGRACE speaks out about the #MeToo movement and the hard choices women face on the path to independence and autonomy in all aspects of their lives.
On “Priorities,” SAYGRACE was inspired to write a message of support for women after seeing the power of the #MeToo movement, feeling moved to make decisions about her career that aligned with believing women. While SAYGRACE was contemplating the lack of women behind the scenes in music, especially in the studio, the idea for this song came to her.
“It was written when a lot of things were coming out all at once,” SAYGRACE remembers. “We really need to band together and help ourselves. There usually isn’t another woman there to open the door for them – the men who are gatekeepers have all this power. It makes women feel minimized and then things happen that should never happen. I wrote this song as a letter to myself, to other women, to girls in general,” SAYGRACE reveals. “This world throws everything at you. It can be tough to stay the course.”
Taking from her life, Brisbane, Australia born singer/songwriter SAYGRACE has made the conscious decision to put the version of herself she wants to be into the world with her forthcoming debut EP, The Defining Moments of SAYGRACE: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, set for release February 7th via RCA Records. She thinks of it as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it, that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want.
She set out to make music that tells girls they don’t have to have it all figured out or succumb to pressure to be something they’re not. That it’s okay to just be yourself. And that it’s okay if you don’t know who that is yet. SAYGRACE’s songs follow her exploration of the world as an adult, with all it entails, including her struggle to find her own voice.
