Independent, singer- songwriter TRACE released her debut EP, titled Low, in August of 2016. Since, it has collected over 24 million streams being a sound that echos synth beats over moody pop lyrics. She is said to fall “somewhere between the breezy, west-coast cool of Lana Del Rey and the moody, R&B kissed ruminations of James Blake”.
As the daughter of a Vietnamese pop icon, TRACE spent most of her childhood watching her mom on stage, surrounded by adoring fans and engulfed in her music, or listening to her vocal warm ups through the bedroom walls. Not wanting to follow in her mother’s footsteps, TRACE chose to release her own creativity through a more introspective path and began to write- about everything. After battling this life long incessant feeling, TRACE left her promising career in editorial behind and began to write her EP in the fall of 2014, doing it all out of her small apartment in east Los Angeles- recording everything in a bathroom.
In March of 2015, she released her first single, Heavy Shoulders, which immediately grabbed the attention of the electronic duo, Odesza. TRACE premiered her EP on Spotify, as the cover of the The Indie Mix, following her celebratory single release of Low under Next Wave Records, Ultra Music.
Luna Shadows made a powerful debut in 2016, creating what Billboard called "some of the most refreshingly soulful and haunting indie pop to come out this year." Her tracks have received over 6 million streams on Spotify, reaching #7 on the US and #18 on the Global Viral Chart and have been placed on tastemaker playlists including New Music Friday, Indie Pop, Weekend Beats and Weekly Buzz. Already a favorite on radio stations worldwide, Shadows' track have seen airplay on the legendary KROQ, BBC Radio 1 + Beats 1 and saw her perform a sold out debut show in LA at School Night. Her own new wave of sultry, melancholy alt-pop paired with the single handed execution of her creations from beginning to end, there is no question that Luna Shadows is THE artist to watch in 2017.
