A GoFundMe page has been created for Emma Grandillo, who for the last nine years, has worked for Grammy-winning producer/songwriter Jay Joyce at Neon Cross Studios.
Grandillo had successful surgery to remove a benign meningioma in her brain behind her eye. She underwent surgery previously for this condition—the first time was back in 1997. Her brain, incision, and eye are healing well from the recent surgery, but it will take a few months for the swelling to subside and the nerves to recover completely. In the meantime, Grandillo is left unable to drive herself to work or to her doctor appointments, and is relying on Uber, Lyft, and friends for transportation.
Grandillo was a writer, vocalist, and bassist for the band In Pursuit on MTM/Capitol Records. Their song “Walking on a Thin Line” reached No. 18 on the pop AC charts. She also worked at Capitol Records from 1991-2006, and after leaving Capitol, organized special events, including artist and writer/publisher showcases at various Nashville hot spots. She also worked with songwriters Monty Powell and Anna Wilson.
She has volunteered for the Garth Brooks Teammates For Kids Foundation and hosted directors, producers, and actors from films showcased at the Nashville Film Festival. She also recently secured the new single for the group Runaway June, “Broken Hearts (Do Broken Things).”
