After releasing her third album “Ramona,” last week, Grace Cummings is thrilled to announce her album tour of Australia, which kicks off in July. Prior to this, Grace will be covering some 26 shows in the US, UK and Europe, with performances scheduled on KEXP Live and WNYC, plus a special yet-to-be-announced performance for US late night television. Grace will play her first sold out London headline shows, support King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard on a European tour, and play a series of festival dates before returning home to treat Australians to her formidable live show.

Praise for Ramona:
“Ramona is Cummings’ most accomplished yet, adorning her voice’s devastating force with a deep, velveteen richness. It feels massive in many ways: a tidal wave of emotion, thick instrumentation and operatic bombast.” – The Guardian

“Raw and evocative, with small details that reach deep into your soul.” – Rolling Stone

“Blessed with a voice full of heart-tugging drama and piercing vibrato ache, Grace Cummings favoured ragged immediacy on her first two albums but takes a more lavish approach here. Recorded with producer Jonathan Wilson, Cummings embraces rich orchestral arrangements, sultry laments and bluesy torch songs, showcasing an impressive vocal and emotional range.” Uncut

“Ramona is like a transition from black-and-white to Technicolor; the new record seems poised to be her breakout record and garner a wider audience.” – Forbes

“A testament to Cummings’ sheer power as a performer, her voice a force arriving with force and star power.” – Paste 

“Ramona” is a work of raw truth rendered in its most beautiful form. In a departure from the self-produced approach of her 2019 debut Refuge Cove and its 2022 follow-up Storm Queen—the Melbourne-based artist worked with producer Jonathan Wilson (Angel Olsen, Father John Misty, Margo Price) at his Topanga Canyon studio to dream up a lavishly orchestrated sound that fully accommodates the depth and scope of her vocal prowess.

With its visceral reflection on grief and self-destruction and emotional violence, “Ramona” brings a stunning new grandeur to Cummings’ music while refusing to soften or temper its humanity.


In January Grace unveiled the first track from Ramona – “On And On”-  along with a hauntingly beautiful video and, just last month, revealed a charming visualizer for the track “Common Man”, followed by final singles “Ramona” and “A Precious Thing“.

Also an accomplished stage actor, Cummings imbues all of Ramona with an unbridled theatricality—an element on glorious display in the album’s title track. “I wrote that at a time when I wasn’t doing well and had the sense that other people saw me as a weak little bird,” says Cummings, who mined inspiration from Bob Dylan’s 1964 song “To Ramona.” “I didn’t want to be myself so I decided to be Ramona instead, full of intensity and melodrama. For me there’s a lot of safety in putting on a costume or a mask; sometimes it feels like the only way to express any true honesty or vulnerability.”
