For decades Solveig Whittle was a Woodinville suburban soccer mom, working at Microsoft and other tech startups. Now she is pursuing her true passion: music.
“I just kinda had this light bulb moment that I’m really an artist,” Whittle said.
Now Whittle’s band Solveig & Stevie is nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award and is up for consideration for a Grammy. In December, they will find out if they made it through the next round of the voting process to be one of the handful of Grammy nominations in their category.
