TRACE is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles California. Her debut EP “LOW” was released in August 2016 and since then has collected over 20 million streams on spotify. The daughter of a Vietnamese music star, TRACE spent her childhood watching her mother on stages around the world. But it was only a few years ago that TRACE gave up a promising career in editorial work to pursue her own dreams of writing and recording music. Tracking her earliest songs in the bathroom of her small east-LA apartment, she has developed a sound that is resonating with an audience to the tune of well over a million streams every month. Having discovered her music ourselves through a spotify playlist, we were thrilled when she agreed to join us for breakfast and an interview about the foods that have shaped her life. Listen to our conversation above, iTunes, or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also check out her newest single HERE.
TRACE'S VIETNAMESE ICED COFFEE
1 Can of Coconut Milk
1/4 cup of Honey
2oz of Strong Espresso
Bring the coconut milk to a boil on a stovetop; then reduce to a low simmer. Add the honey and cook, stirring occasionally, until it's thickened and reduced - about 15 or 20 minutes. Pour espresso over ice, then add a spoonful of the coconut and honey mixture over top.
