About Nolo Grace


Nolo Grace is a Korean-American singer/songwriter/producer making her debut with “Wake Up,” featuring pop artist Sean Kingston ( known for his Billboard Hot 100 song “Beautiful Girls” and other hit songs like “Fire Burning” and “Eenie Meanie.”)

Nolo Grace charted an unconventional path into music. After building a business career as a successful corporate executive in New York City, she decided to leave that behind and traveled the world as a digital nomad before moving to Los Angeles in 2017. As she discovered a path of her own outside of the corporate world, Nolo’s love for music was reignited. In 2019 she attended Beat Lab Academy where she has since developed her talents as an upcoming producer and worked with fellow alumni BlakeQuakes. At the start of 2020, Nolo married fellow music producer and collaborator Lars Martin The lockdown of 2020 allowed the couple the space to focus on their creativity, both releasing their solo music projects in 2021.

Drawing on pop, R&B, hip hop, and experimental genres, Nolo Grace has crafted her own signature form of dreamy electronic alt-pop. She draws inspiration from a wide range of sources, from sampling and manipulating the sounds of everyday life to the Western canon of music, Top 40 radio, and time spent in over 40 countries. Her sound is hypnotic and current—a layer of atmospheric synths, vocal pads, and punchy drums. In her process, she tries to approach music like a child exploring sound, often starting tracks spontaneously using her own voice and building from there. Her catchy melodies serve up thought-provoking lyrics about personal transformation and empowerment.
