For Grace Amos, the past two years have been a whirlwind.
Grace said she never expected to be releasing her first single this year.
"The song is called Listen Real Closely and I wrote it last year with country singer David Carter at Tamworth," she said.
"I like to tell a story with my music and this song is about my anxiety.
"I think a lot of people my age, or of any age, know what it's like to want to fit in but to not want to change who you are.
"I wanted to let people know that they aren't alone."
The 16-year-old produced the song with multi-Golden Guitar award-winning producer Matt Fell.
"It was kind of insane that he was interested it because I don't tend to think highly of myself," Grace said.
"The first time I heard it played back to me in the studio was incredible because I have never experienced anything like that."
Grace's new single has been added to rotation on Kix Country Network and ABC Country.
Before the outbreak of Covid-19 the talented songstress was due to hit the road for a few live shows.
"I was meant to have a gig where I was supporting Richard Clapton and Daryl Braithwaite and I was booked as a busker at Byron Bay Bluesfest," Grace said.
"I am also going to be opening for The Choirboys on their tour later this year.
"I am glad not all of my gigs have been cancelled because I really miss performing live."
Grace encouraged locals to stream her original song Listen Real Closely on Spotify.
"I think it's something that everyone will be able to relate to," she said.
