My Mom claims that I came into this world singing, but I definitely stumbled upon the art of songwriting. I took piano lessons about four different times during my childhood, but it never stuck. I would always rely heavily upon my ability to hear by ear- and would memorize songs- rather than learn to read them. I resolved that I was going to be a failure at any instrument, until, in 2006, my Mom gave me the piano upon which she had learned. I started fooling around on it, and was pleasantly surprised with a desire to write, which I gladly let overtake me. At that point, I was caught up and into a love affair with listening for a song. I am now obsessed with it. I listen for them all the time. They are everywhere, just waiting to be heard and set free.
