Today we’d like to introduce you to Grace Morrison.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started writing songs around 1998. Lilith Fair was the big tour of the summer and I remember seeing all these women playing guitars and singing songs they had written. I distinctly recall thinking “I can do that”. The rest is history, I’ve been making a living writing and teaching music ever since.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The entertainment business could never be called a smooth road! It’s a daily struggle, you get more “no’s” than you do “yes’s”. Developing a thick skin is essential (perhaps that’s my biggest struggle). Recording high quality music is both a must and quite expensive, so having a good business plan is important as well.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Grace Morrison – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I do two things: I write/perform music, and I teach private music lessons. I’d say I’m equally known for each, but what I am most proud of in both areas is creating space for myself and others to express themselves. My music students learn that their instruments are a great tool for analyzing and dealing with their own emotions and struggles. For me, music has been my primary promoter of self-confidence, and it shows in my students.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I’m currently recording a second album and trying to market it to film and television music supervisors.
