A song and video that tells a story about evolving into what you want to be and need to become, ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ is but the latest chapter in the career of a creative musician on the rise, both personally and professionally.
About Nolo Grace
Nolo Grace is a Korean-American artist/producer that made her debut with “Wake Up,” featuring Sean Kingston. A native New Yorker, she moved to Los Angeles in 2017 after living around the world as a digital nomad. Drawing on pop, R&B, hip hop, and experimental genres, Nolo Grace has crafted her own signature form of dreamy electronic alt-pop. Her latest single, ‘Miss Perfect,’ is a celebration of individuality and female empowerment, taking inspiration from her 5-year journey of transforming her life and rejecting past expectations to formulate a new path.
She draws inspiration from a range of sources, from sampling the sounds of everyday life to the Western canon of music, Top 40 radio, and time spent in 40+ countries. Her sound is hypnotic and current—a layer of atmospheric synths, vocal pads, and punchy drums.
She often approaches music like a child, starting tracks spontaneously using her own voice. Her catchy melodies serve up thought-provoking lyrics about personal growth. Nolo Grace grew up playing piano and traveling around the world performing in choirs. Growing up the child of Korean immigrants in a stormy and violent home, security was always an issue, and music became a source of trauma. She left home at 14 for boarding school and established a business career as an executive on Wall Street and in tech before hitting a breaking point. Discovering music production completely changed her life and relationships.
She married music producer Martin Wave / Lars Martin in 2020. Through their relationship and in quarantine, they learned to express and embrace their own voices, gaining clarity into themselves as individuals, creators, and a creative couple.
