Teenage singer-songwriter Filey Grace Robertson has released her third song – a new version of Cinderella’s fairy tale version of love – on Spotify

Filey’s Grace Robertson has just released her third single Fairytale on Spotify

Cinderella is the inspiration behind the lyrics. “It’s a song about love in fairy tale books – like Prince Charming and the birds that help princesses dress – but then goes on to explain how love, in reality, doesn’t isn’t perfect and you don’t need a Prince Charming to save you – that you can save yourself,” she said.

“I really identify with this song. I wrote from the heart about how I grew up thinking I was going to fall in love and everything would be perfect, when in reality it’s not like that.

“You have to love yourself and achieve your goals and not just depend on someone else.” said Grace, who attends Scarborough-based Coast Tuition.

Eighteen-year-old Grace suffers from panic attacks, finds it difficult to go out on her own and finds social situations difficult. Music helps him cope with the crippling anxiety brought on by a bout of glandular fever when he was 10 years old.

She released her first single – You Are My Home – on Spotify and Apple Music late last year and this was followed by her second song One in a Million.

Grace, who lives in Filey with mum Sharon and dad Alan who works at Tesco in the town, plans to focus on a career in music this year.

“I plan to play the streets of Bridlington and/Scarborough to hopefully boost my confidence,” said Grace, who has learned acoustic guitar and records songs on her phone.

“Performances and concerts in local bars/cafes are a goal for the future,” she said.
