Today we’d like to introduce you to Dolly Ramirez.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Dolly. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
The first thing I need to say is that music is my life. I can’t remember a day when there wasn’t a song coming out of my mouth. I know it sounds corny but it’s true and I’m all about speaking truth. My name is Dolly Ramirez and I have a band called CoolHouse, a music promotion company called Divine Rebel Music, I’m a vocalist, and I run the social media for a show at Coffee Gallery Backstage called Roadhouse Series Presents.
We had the good fortune of connecting with Dolly Ramirez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dolly, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking.
Taking a risk can go one of two ways: you will either fail or you will succeed. I had no intention of failing when starting my business, but I knew that if I did, it was not the worst thing that could happen to me. There are plenty of people 6 ft under who probably spent their last moments wishing they had taken a risk or followed a dream. There is one particular quote that cracked me wide open about the fear that used to lead me, “Our Deepest Fear” from A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson.
CoolHouse is an L.A. based indie folk duo, Dolly Ramirez and JJ Schoch.
Dolly Ramirez is a vocalist/songwriter and Owner/operator of Divine Rebel Music, a music promotion company. Jean-Jacques (JJ) Schoch is a composer/multi-instrumentalist. Together, they are the Americana duo, CoolHouse.
