Indie Singer/Songwriter Uses Millennial Thinking - Delivers 23-Song "Multi-Course" Story

Share Article

Washington Post & YouTube favorite Kayte Grace, (& cousin of 5 time Grammy Winner Victor Wooten) is several albums and national tours deep, and will release the "Chapter 2: Sail There" EP on November 25th, along with an official music video. The EP is the 2nd chapter of her 5 EP "Set Fire to Separate Lives" Project.

"It's a kind of progressive dinner, where I serve new music to fans and friends in 4 or 5 song 'courses' ... chapters really ... over the course of a year or two," says Grace.

In his Fast Company article, "Why Millennials Want to Work for Themselves," Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic writes, " Although millennials are expected to make up 75% of the workforce by 2025, a significant number will never be employees in the traditional sense [...] A new favorite career choice has emerged, which eclipses any other form of traditional employtment--working for themselves or launching their own business."

One such millennial is an independent artist that the Washington Post called "impressive" and "a talented musician" and who YouTube featured as the "Unsigned Pick of the Week" on their homepage: Maryland to New York City to Los Angeles transplant, alternative country singer/songwriter Kayte Grace. Grace, since graduating Columbia University in 2011 with a Creative Writing: NonFiction degree, has built an indie music career from the ground up by taking on the national tour booking, marketing, social media strategy, producing, graphic and web design, branding and music creation herself.
