SLAVE TO ECONOMY
Slave to economy is about a little girl who suffers from her parents not having any time for her and how that takes away our most precious human resource, our sense of belonging. There's a new term called 'economic orphan' and it describes children who are left behind or abandoned by their parents out of economic demand! In the end the little girl Sue, from my song, becomes an 'economic slave' herself and so the circle closes.....that's why I have invited children to sing with me: "... We are slave to economy......"
Welcome to my website:) My name is gg, which comes from my two first names grace and gruschenka. I’m a Neohippie artist/producer and film actress.
I come from an artistic and musical family. I grew up in communes around Europe as a child to hippies. My first leading role, in a movie, has been at the tender age of 6, followed by more TV and theatre roles as a child and teenager.
At 17, I decided to leave boarding school which was beautifully placed in the castle along the Rhein River close to the city Bonn in Germany and move to the Lower East Side of New York to study acting at the world-renowned Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and at HB Studios. Parallel to my love for acting I underwent singing and music studies at the Manna Music School in Harlem with the wonderful Gloria Dennard. I was fascinated with all the creativity that surrounded me and participated as a background singer at concerts in the New York underground scene. This early inspiration laid the foundation for my musical development as a singer/songwriter. From then on, I have worked with successfull producers songwriters and musicians across the planet in Nashville, NYC, LA, Germany, London and Sydney to develop my very own musical handwriting.
I write authentic songs about the freedom to choose your own life as opposed to being a ‘Slave to economy’ and about how a mother is born when a child is born and how that transformation has washed away a good chunk of my personality 'edges' in ‘Shine a light’. I love to empower women and I feel very grateful to Alice Schwarzer, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Alice Miller and countless other amazing women who have freed the road for our generation of powerful, intelligent and creative women leaders….
To quote one of my favourite contemporary poets David Whyte : "this is NOT the age of communication…this is the age of woman”
So, it’s only natural that I would love to see every woman in the world put on her ‘Bossy Bootz’ and excuse my language kick ass…..
