Today we’d like to introduce you to Inara George.
Inara, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve been writing, recording and playing music in bands (the bird and the bee, The Living Sisters, Merrick) and as a solo artist for over 25 years. For my last solo release (Dearest Everybody), I decided to put the album out myself. I ended up releasing the record under my own label “Release Me Records.” I had so much fun doing it that I decided to help some of my dearest and most talented friends. So far I’ve signed two artists, Alex Lilly, who’s record is coming out January 11th and Samantha Sidley.
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?
It’s such a new thing that any bumps have been very small.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Release Me Records story. Tell us more about the business.
It’s a very small record label built for the purpose of exposing some very talented people, that I’ve had the pleasure of working with, to the world.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I was born into a musical family, which I think always makes getting into the business a little easier. But that really doesn’t make a career. It’s a lot of work and perseverance, and luck plays a very small role.
But I would say I’m an extremely lucky person. I’ve had some incredible experiences and had the opportunity to work with some insanely talented people.
