Grace Savage believes that the world has got it all wrong about Beatboxers. “People think of movies like 8 Mile: it’s hardcore – bitches, money, battles”, she says,. “But most beatboxers I know are quiet geeky; just obsessed with sounds, rhythms and voices”. And when Grace Savage beat boxes, you can’t help but be mesmerised by those sounds.
Grace has twice been crowned the UK Female Beatbox Champion (2012 & 2013) and twice the UK Team Beatbox Champion (2015 & 2016) but as one of only two professional female beatboxers in the UK the titles don’t do her justice. Fronting a live band, beatboxing and singing, she has shared the main stage at the ‘As One‘ festival with Rita Ora and Kati B, supported Labarinth and performed solo at Glastonbury, Shambala, Latitude, As One, Lovebox, Roundhouse and the 02 academy. And most recently she has supported BeardyMan at Radio 1’s Academy.
Grace takes over from MC Zani who unfortunately can’t make it over this year as he had initially hoped.
