About Graycie York
Graycie York is known for her signature turquoise collection of jewelry as well as an electric guitar style ring, but that's not all. Calm, collected, and tousled blonde hair help show she is a true country artist in the rising.
“I’ve been singing since before I could talk. Well, that’s what my whole family says anyways."
Authentic old school country music speaks to this girl’s soul: a true believer in the heartfelt, yet upbeat songs of the past decades; vinyl record music at its finest. “My biggest idol is definitely Patsy Cline or any of the original country female artists, because I think they changed the whole country genre." These famous influences persuaded her to join the genre of country music, but it was her family that ultimately influenced her to have a passion for a melody. “My parents are super into music, so I was around it all the time. But, my grandpa used to play guitar. He actually gave up on it a long time ago, but he was the first person to give me my guitar one Christmas.”
The Texas native plays an array of instruments from piano to the guitar to the ukulele. But just recently, she started practicing the art of storytelling. “I started songwriting after I took a trip to Nashville and that trip was my inspiration to start writing my own music."
A variety of opportunities have already been placed in her hands due to fierce work ethic and passion for the music industry: some very exciting accomplishments that she is praying will continue to happen as time progresses. "Everyone in Texas country music is super supportive. It’s not really a competition. We all want everyone to succeed.”
When playing shows, she says it’s always super fun to get the crowd pumped up. But the sentimental songs like ‘Patsy Kind of Night’, one she penned herself, are always so gratifying. “I love to perform my original songs, because it’s more me and personal. I like to see the reactions of people, but my favorite song to cover is ‘ I Kept the Roses’ by Tenille Townes. It’s one of my favorite songs ever.”
The future is a foggy concept for Graycie. A mere idea of what could happen. Nothing is guaranteed.
“My dream has always been to just do music. There is nothing else that’s ever been ahead of music. It’s just always been a want to be on stage singing every night. I’d be perfectly content with my life. I hope to get music released soon because I do have enough content to get put on an EP or album. I’m trying to be as humble as I can, because that’s how I was raised. I don’t really look much into the future. I’m kind of just taking it day by day. Things are happening really fast.”
“My grandma says this is my year; everything happens for a reason.”
An aura of real confidence and genuine excitement fills her face. A raw talented singer. A voice to be reckoned with. Graycie York is on her way to living a life she has dreamt of since she was a little girl.
