Sundowner Sessions Ezmay Grace, Lusty Glaze Beach, Newquay, Wednesday 23rd June
Ezmay-Grace was born on Tuesday 11th June 1996 in West Yorkshire where she grew up in a small village on the foothills of the Pennines. She started showing an interest in music at the age of 6 when she went along to her sister’s piano lessons. She was keen to try her hands at it, so the teacher, Sumi, made an exception to her usual 8 years or older rule and took Ezmay on. That was the spark that lit her fire. Since then, Ezmay has moved to beautiful Cornwall, and her passion for music has only grown. She has explored many genres during her education, however, when she discovered folk, her heart had found its home and she began to write with inspiration from the likes of Joni Mitchell and Kate Rusby.
