1.1 Grace, Sara, and Stockholm's music tech scene
When Australian native Grace McCallum entered an online competition to join the ABBA Choir, she never imagined she would end up uprooting her entire life and relocating to Stockholm. She was soon taken under the wing of music industry veteran Sara Herrlin, and the two have gone on to form Stockholm Music City, a movement bringing together Sweden's two most dynamic industries: music and tech.
Host Samanda Ekman talks to Grace and Sara about how their extraordinary friendship started with a very, very long lunch, how to find the true value in a network and what it's like to be a woman in the traditionally male-dominated industry of music tech.
