INTERVIEW: Grace Parry Discusses The Release Of The Empowering Single “Silly Girl”!

South Wales-based singer-songwriter Grace Parry brings an array of heartfelt musical releases that delve into emotional depths to create an instantly relatable connection. With each release, Grace illustrates an intuitive & creative disposition that has the power to guide listeners through a musical journey full of sentiment & wonder. 

Grace recently released the new single “Silly Girl”, which expresses a conversation between family & friends where they try to divert the “Silly Girl” from avoiding trusting someone who is no good. 

The song confronts the subject of coercive control & narcissism in modern-day relationships & strives to inspire everyone to stand against control & discover their self-worth.

Grace has kindly taken the time to speak with Fierce & Fabulous Revolution regarding the latest release. You can find the full interview below.

Hey Grace, thank you for this interview. Can you start by telling readers a little bit about yourself?

Grace: I’m a singer-songwriter from Wales! I started writing music at the age of 11 and I’m also a classically trained pianist!

When did you first discover your passion for music?

Grace: I first discovered my passion for music when my auntie gave my dad her piano years ago and I started to learn at the age of 6.

Have you always known that you wanted to pursue a career within the music industry?

Grace: I think I was about 11 when I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the music industry. I started writing songs and compositions to deal with childhood bullying. Music was my escapism. 

How would you currently describe your musical style?

Grace: I’d say I’m a singer-songwriter with a pop / R&B twist.

You recently released the new single “Silly Girl”. What does this song mean to you?

Grace: The song means a lot to Me because seeing people go through the hurt and pain that comes with narcissistic relationships is very triggering but then to have got caught up in one myself was something else. It’s like falling in love with someone who wants to destroy you when all you want to do is be loved. Coercion isn’t love and I want people to recognise the difference before it’s too late.

Did you always plan to release “Silly Girl” as a single?

Grace: No, if I’m completely honest, I wrote the second verse about a couple I knew and it was saved as a voice note on my phone. After my break up, I applied my own story to comprise the rest of the song. I thought ‘ omg this song can be like a conversation ‘

How would you compare the creative process behind this song to some of your earlier releases?

Grace: The creative process to this was so different as this was something completely different musically and lyrically to anything I’d ever written. The song speaks for itself.

What does this song personally mean to you?

Grace: This song I wrote as a three-way conversation. The verse is your friends and family telling you he’s no good for you, the bridge is you arguing back ( the denial ) and the chorus is begging him to stop hurting Me because it’s tearing Me apart. You see so many situations like this where your loved ones are warning you about someone but you’re so blinded by love it’s hard to get out of that situation.

What message would you like to see listeners take from this song?

Grace: I want listeners to hear the song and think ‘ I’m in this now’ if you recognise this as your life, or your relationship then GET OUT NOW. When you’re in love it’s easier said than done. But no one that loves you would ever want to hurt you or see you cry, let alone manipulate you into thinking you’re something you’re not or controlling you.

Finally, is there a message that you would like to share with the readers of Fierce & Fabulous Revolution? 

Grace: Silly Girl is out now! Please download and stream to your heart’s content! 20 % of the downloads will be donated to women’s aid!
