The New Graces single "how am i supposed to be a mother" out now
Here is the music video for HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO BE A MOTHER by THE NEW GRACES, Directed, shot and edited by our wonderful friend Tim Winterflood from the live recording session, recorded with Shane Nicholson under the gumtrees on the central coast on Mother's Day 2021.
The first track from three single release Open Heart Sessions, this first one written by Melanie Horsnell. Melanie says “I wrote it a week before mother’s day, Robyn and Kate had written two beautiful songs for our project and I was sweeping up at work thinking about songs and mothering and a little overwhelmed by it all when the line “How Am I Supposed To Be A Mother” came to mind, in despair and also in a longing to be a really good one. It’s difficult to describe as it’s all in the lyric, but it all came out by candlelight at the kitchen table that night - firstly all the worries one has, and then the beautiful things our children say to us when we really feel like giving up hope.”
