Being born and raised in East Tennessee, I was always surrounded by country music and country music fans. That being said, I was more inspired by blues, soul, and indie music. I began my music endeavor at a very young age when my grandmother would allow me to watch her play beautiful classical tunes on her piano. As the years went on, I started to pick up some things by ear. My parents were kind enough to buy me my first keyboard. I would listen to the songs programmed into the keyboard and learn them by ear. Eventually, I was placed into lessons. I had my teacher convinced that I was reading each note, when in reality I was playing back what she would had demonstrated. To this day I still play by ear. The same went for guitar, except my father was my teacher. I was always astonished with how effortlessly he would play rock solos, or any song for that matter. I loved the tone of his electric guitar so much, but I had something special for his acoustic. Around age 16, I started writing some songs of my own, for my ears only (thank GOD). My writing began to progress and I decided it was time to make a move. I applied and was accepted into Belmont University's songwriting program, which was a huge confidence booster. I moved to Nashville and fell in love with the creativity and support of the city. After writing numerous songs I finally found one that I wanted the world to hear. Within a couple months it was recorded, released, and I was hooked. I love the process and I can't wait to share more with all of you.
