For Marjorie, pursuing her passion was a priority—and she wasn't going to let her age get in the way.

Marjorie got her first guitar when she was just 10 years old, but she didn't write her first song until she was 47! "I wrote 40 songs in the first four months of doing this. It was as if I were taken over by spirits," she says.

With seven children and a successful career as an associate dean at Brown University, you'd think Marjorie wouldn't have time to pursue music—think again! At 54, Marjorie has recorded four albums and has been on tour for about seven years! "Time doesn't wait for you, and I knew that it was now or never," she says.
