Grace Goodwin


Grace started playing drums aged 7 and pursued a music career from an early age in her hometown of Liverpool.

She went on to study BA Hons Popular Music at the Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts where she graduated with 1st Class Honours. She has recently completed her MA in Music Industry Studies at the University of Liverpool. She is continuing her research onto a PhD in 2023 where she will focus on regional gender inequality in the UK music industry. Her research is funded by the Dave Laing scholarship.

Grace also works closely with colleagues at the university on a number of projects including the Liverpool City Region venues map, collaborating with cities across the UK and Europe to consider the importance of live music venues to cultural strategies and communities.

She works as an artist mentor at Future Yard, a music venue based in the Liverpool City Region. She runs advice sessions for emerging artists and workshops on the music business.

At the weekends she can be found playing drums and percussion and her travels have taken her to places such as Greece, Croatia and Italy.
