I grew up in a military family and was actually born in England. I moved every 2-3 years between the U.S. and Europe and music was my one constant. I have always had a passion for singing, but it wasn't until the age of 13 that I began writing my own songs. We had just moved from South Dakota to Clarksville, TN and I was struggling to make friends. I felt alone and began writing to express that. Soon afterwards I decided to learn guitar, so with a little help from my dad and YouTube I was able to teach myself the basics and grow from there. I have been lucky enough to be invited to play in many establishments all throughout Nashville; to include The Listening Room, Moxy Downtown Nashville, Belcourt Taps, Commodore Grille, 404 Bar & Grill, and The NashHouse Silverspoon & Saloon. I have released 4 originals, but I am now working on releasing a cohesive EP. I am so excited to share my upcoming EP with the world because I feel that it really touches on some of the struggles that we are facing as a nation today: the want to be famous or popular, the drug epidemic, feeling alone... I truly believe that many will be able to connect and identify with these upcoming songs.

I have been singing since before I could walk! I have always loved singing. My big sister sings and she has always been my singing buddy who I look up to. When I turned four, I auditioned for One Voice Children’s Choir and made it in. In addition to my opportunities with One Voice, I have participated in school and community musical theatre productions. I have been in eight musicals and loved each one! I am excited to have more opportunities for songwriting and the ability to record tracks and make music videos. Thank you for all the love and support! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me!
