An Office in Hackney

A pop-up office in Hackney Square park.

Grace Petrie is a singer-songwriter with deep folk roots. Her songs have a strong left-wing and gay-rights flavour. Her voice is soapbox clear and her guitar work is protest tuned, but it’s her lyrics that seize a listener’s attention. Here’s a song about the music industry. About the record labels and the promoters who exploit artists for their own gain, and about how it feels to be a defiant independent musician, resisting those commercial pressures to preserve your artistic integrity.

With an irrepressible Grace on the side of socialism, this is a fight that Hackneyed capitalism can’t win.
