It takes someone with experience in all aspects of the music business to understand how to make decisions that will direct the careers of aspiring and established musicians and artists. Debbie Grisham has that kind of varied experience. Beginning with her own career as a singer in a local band in her home state of Maine, she eventually moved to Nashville to pursue her dream, but later found out is more passionate about working behind the scenes with other artists.
Debbie, along with her husband Doyle Grisham (long-time pedal steel guitarist for Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, and session player for artists such as Randy Travis, Dan Seals, Jim Glaser, Dr. Hook and many others), took over management duties for Fireside Recording Studio, which was owned by Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner. Her experience there expanded to include engineering sessions and working with the publishing arm of the company.
Debbie currently represents the catalogs for successful writers such as Jim Glaser and Jimmy Payne who wrote Gary Puckett & The Union Gap’s platinum-selling song, “Woman, Woman.” She also represents Lisa Palas whose credits include songs recorded by Alabama, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, Kris Kristofferson, Chris LeDoux, Lee Greenwood, The Whites, Conway Twitty, The Oak Ridge Boys and others. Her most recent recording, “That’s What Angels Do,” is the award winning inspirational hit on Anita Hall’s debut album, “Send Love.”
Not only does Debbie represent songs, she represents the artists! Before officially founding Deb Grisham Entertainment, Debbie was the agent for Coral Reefer band members, Nadirah Shakoor, Doyle Grisham and Jim Mayer.
“I am very passionate about every one of our artists. They each have their own unique style and its such an honor to work with them.”
Debbie also coordinates the Meet & Greets at the Margaritaville Foods area for the Coral Reefers with the Parrot Head groups at the Jimmy Buffett shows.
At Deb Grisham Entertainment, our mission is simple: to connect quality, hard-working and talented entertainment with quality, respectable, and visible venues for which to showcase their artistry.
