Saturday Night Live? YES, PLEASE?

It has been a dream of mine for the last two years to see Grace perform on Saturday Night Live, and it seems that there’s now a way we, as fans, can make that happen, or at least influence the producers who make the decision as to who gets the opportunity to appear on...

Surviving the Drought

We knew this was coming, but Grace spoiled us rotten for months with a constant stream of public activity we could follow: interviews, photoshoots, awards ceremonies, a huge tour, late night talk show appearances, movie role (starring role) announcements, conjecture...

Just The Beginning’s End (Part II)

…Continued from yesterday’s editorial The album, save for a glowing review in USA Today, and a sort-of review/article in US magazine, went unreviewed by the trade magazines that establish a reputation for an aspiring artist, that drum up the hype that’s...

Just The Beginning’s End (Part I)

Not even a year has passed, believe it or not, since Grace dropped her first full length album (LP) “Just The Beginning”. That’s not to say the album hasn’t been on our minds for over a year. When Moonlight dropped on June 21st, 2017, debuted with an electrifying...

Graceful Timbre: A Musical Analysis

Studies have shown that over the years, the general quality, thickness, and nice-soundiness of music, also known as “timbre” has been going down over the years, with synthesizers, drum machines, and vocals being the only instruments in many songs. Sometimes this...

5 Days of Grace: In The Studio

During her interviews on the 2018 MTV VMA red carpet Grace promised fans that she would be in the recording studio for 5 days following Simon Cowell’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Unveiling ceremony that took place yesterday. What will she record? Apparently, Grace...

Disney Streaming Service: Stargirl’s Role

This is going to be a bit Grace-light, but it’s important information to understand just how different, “Stargirl” will be from other Disney movies and programs that you may be used to. First things first, “Stargirl” is being produced specifically for an exclusive...

Glimmering Glamorous Grace

Let’s get this out of the way first… I am ticked-off that Hayley Kiyoko managed the upset win and not Grace. I would have preferred the nod go to the odd-makers’ favourites, and platinum selling artists, Khalid and SZA. Okay, I’ll put my fan-pouting aside and move on...

Grace Knows Something We Don’t

Okay, I admit it… Grace you’ve beaten me. I have no idea what surprise you’re going to unleash on us next. You’ve been teasing all weekend, and each tease only tortures me further. You’re good, I’ll give you that. 😉 Okay, here’s the evidence/teases she’s...

Lyrical Grace: Maybe (This Could Be Something)

The lyrics, as best heard by Mark Lalonde. Blame him if he got them wrong. 😉 “I’m a go outside, I like the grass, Makes me feel happy in my lungs as the time will pass, I hope when I see you, you could feel the same, Maybe we could be more similar every single day?...

Grace & The 2018 MTV VMAs

Since tomorrow is “Lyrical Grace” Sunday (we have new contributing writer providing that article) I think it’s best to address the 2018 Video Music Awards today. Grace has been nominated in a HUGE field for “MTV Push Artist of the Year”. Here they are (all 15): Bishop...

Let Grace Be Grace

It’s easy to get caught up wishing change, or the absence of change, upon those we love, whether that person is someone you know personally or somebody you’re merely a fan of. I’ve seen a lot of that coming from FanderWaals (particularly older ones), and I’ve been...

Be Something/Find or See?

Yesterday, Grace did another livestream where she demonstrated precisely why I’m a fan of hers to the degree that I am. She was thoughtful in what she said, artistic (insanely creative) creating yet another amazing song written live during the stream (my God, she’s...

Grace’s Surviving Tour-Born Songs

Well, Grace dropped this little note last night… @GraceVanderWaal via Instagram ❤ pic.twitter.com/HrANyMcFRc — Grace VanderWaal News (@GraceVW_News) August 15, 2018 For those of you who can’t see it, for whatever reason, here it is in plain text… (typos and all)...

Stargirl Societies; They’re a Beautiful Thing

Stargirl Societies, after the “Stargirl” novel became a bestseller, popped up everywhere. Organizations, usually begun at schools, where girls were encouraged to promote their individuality and support others in expressing themselves without shame or judgement, where...

Beyond Stargirl

I realize that filming hasn’t even begun for Stargirl, but I’m interested to hear what kinds of roles you think Grace should seek out/accept leading up to and after the release of Stargirl. I personally think Grace should tackle something really meaty in her follow up...

Lyrical Grace: Escape My Mind

I remember the first time I heard this song, it was one of the pre-album released singles, though not officially “pushed” by the label for radio play. I was thrilled by Grace’s vocals, but nonplussed when it came to the fifties doo-wop vibe of the horn section. It’s...

Grace Should Narrate An Audiobook

This is going to be a rather short article, but I think it’s a cool idea, so I’m gonna go ahead and write it. I’m not sure when it struck me, but earlier today, I had an idea: what if Grace VanderWaal narrated an audiobook? Then I arrived at the conclusion that it...

What Follows, Grace?

Grace’s publicist went to great lengths this week to ensure that the story of Grace dumping her planned EP reached as many eyeballs as possible through Teen Vogue, J-14, Just Jared Junior, and other minor news aggregators, while at the same time promoting, through...

The Summer of Grace

The last two months have been an incredible ride, not only for Grace, her family, and her band, but for her fans as well. As fans we were spoiled rotten. There was always something new in the Graceverse happening every single week, whether it was concert footage, the...

Grace at School

As Grace winds up her stint as opening act for Imagine Dragons on the second North American leg of their Evolve tour, it’s important to remember that it’s not only her summer tour, it’s also her summer vacation. While most people her age are focusing on the upcoming...

Eating Crow Gracefully

The problem with theories and predictions is that their connection with reality is often based on little, or – in the case at hand – circumstantial, evidence, hope and wishful thinking. I’m guilty of all of the above regarding the casting of co-starring...

Graceful Image

A photo-edit sparked my imagination this morning. It takes the already stunning photograph by Blythe Thomas of Grace wearing the dress she showed off on her Late Late Show w/James Corden appearance, shielding her eyes from the sun. If you haven’t already seen it,...

What Will The Next Album Be Like?

It seems with each new song and cover Grace’s sound evolves a little (or a lot) more. As we await the next LP, probably coming 2019, let’s take some guesses as to what it’s going to be all about. Ben, Melissa and Dylan. What an awesome band! They’re perfectly suited...

Grace Can Rock, But Will She?

I peruse the music industry trades every morning on the lookout for developments that might impact Grace that I can share with you, and though today’s news did not contain anything specific, the genre charts triggered my radar, specifically the Rock Streaming...

Grace’s Target Tracks

Back when Grace’s first LP “Just The Beginning” was released I was curious to hear the two bonus tracks that were included on the Target exclusive edition of the album (for those outside of the U.S. Target is a large retail department store chain). Target had just...
