Groves’ body was found by her roommate. No foul play is suspected. Her PR firm Big Hassle Media released a statement from the coroner that ruled out self harm. The singer had not been tested for COVID. Her brother Cody Groves posted a statement on social media that she had some medical problems last fall.
As of now, the consensus is that she died from natural causes but her family is awaiting the coroner’s final report.
Groves was born in Emporia, KS. In 2009 she had success with her songs, ‘A Month of Sundays’ and ‘Life of a Pirate’. She gained a lot of online exposure and eventually signed with RCA Records.
The singer continued to be successful releasing singles like “We’re the S***”, “Love Actually” and perhaps her most notable release, “This Little Girl”. Her most recent music came out in 2015 in the form of an independently released EP called “Dreams”. It was later picked up by Vel Records. Notable songs included “Oil & Water” and “Crying Games”.
During her career, she toured and shared the stage with notable acts like Good Charlotte, Boys Like Girls and All Time Low.
At the time of her death, Groves was working on new music collaborating with the songwriters at the Nashville based publishing company SMACKSongs. She was working on releasing those songs via the Thirty Tigers label in 2020. Groves’ family stated that they are now hoping to release the music posthumously.
"She was so excited to finally be putting out this body of music that she had worked for so long on (over a year)," family friend and working partner Camus Celli, CEO of Vel Records released in a statement. "To get back in front of her fans to play this new music... that was really everything to her, her connection with her fans meant the world to her."
Groves’ family is asking fans to refrain from speculating about her death. They are hoping that she will be remembered for her love of “music, laughter, cooking, tacos and, especially, her family”. In lieu of sending flowers, they are asking Groves’ supporters to make donations to MusiCares and Music Health Alliance instead.
Groves lived a full life but she was taken too soon. She lives on through her music.
