Grammy Nominee Tips for Success
I interviewed Grammy nominees from the children’s music category in 2017 for a special concert held at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood. We discussed their inspiration and tips for making it in the music business. One common theme was the importance of doing what is authentic to you and not doing what you think would work, just because it’s a formula. Almost all of the artists also discussed that they were musicians outside of children’s music first and found it easier to balance family life and music life when they switched to children’s music. Another theme that emerged was the importance of working away at your music career and basically doing the work both musically and on the business end. The nominees were Brady Rymer and The Little Band that Could, Frances England, Okee Dokee Brothers, Recess Monkey and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.
