Grace Hong

Music was a passion of mine when I was younger – I played piano and sang opera/classical and performed in choirs. Unfortunately, sometimes the things you love can be a source of pain and trauma, in part because you care so much. I had several difficult early experiences, and I gave up. And didn’t do any music, not even singing to myself while I was alone for almost two decades.

I continued to have lingering questions and regrets, but I was busy and I was building a successful career in corporate America – working on Wall Street, at think tanks, traveling internally as a government consultant, etc. I was a senior executive at a conglomerate with billions in revenue, and I came to a point where I couldn’t do it anymore. I became a nomad for about a year, and I dug deep and realized very progressively that I wanted to pursue music.

I ended up in LA and started writing songs and producing. Last August, I started learning Ableton, and I am obsessed. I haven’t released music yet, but I am working on several singles and an EP…or maybe several EPs. Anyway, I believe it's never too late to pursue something you're passionate about and to believe you can be successful doing it!

    It is never too late to pursue your dreams! Good to see you getting back into it!
    Very easy to listen to! 🙂 Any particular reason you chose to learn Ableton Live over other DAWs?
