I've had a passion for music my entire life. As the daughter of a performing artist, I spent a lot of time watching my mother write, record, and perform at festivals and churches. This early exposure to the local music scene started my love affair with songs and how they tell stories, so I began singing as early as age four. At first, I sang with my mother, but by age seven, I started scheduling my own shows. I also began writing my own songs. Karaoke tracks turned into piano lessons, middle school band, voice lessons, and guitar class. I began competing in local, district, and state singing competitions, and I became a Georgia 4-Her in the Performing Arts Vocal project. I also became a member of Clovers & Co., a state-wide 4-H Performing Arts Group. After graduating high school a year early, I entered the University of Georgia to pursue a degree in communications with a music business certificate. I have recently recorded a new EP with Bill McDermott in Nashville that will be released soon, and I have been blessed with a 2018 Female Artist of the Year Nomination from Georgia-Country. I am enjoying touring, and I plan to move to Nashville after graduation from UGA. I am thankful every day for the opportunities, fan support, and industry support that have allowed me to pursue my dream of being a country music singer-songwriter! I look forward to seeing you on the road!
Q: Who is your favorite artist?
A: "I love Taylor Swift! She is so good at writing, fan engagement, and performance in general. I saw her open for Brad Paisley when I was seven, and I got to meet her after the show. I have been following her ever since."
Q: What is your most memorable performance?
A: "My most memorable performance was at a Relay for Life memorial service. They turned off all the lights in the gym during my cover of "See You Again" by Carrie Underwood. It was a very touching moment when all the individual stories were brought together by music. This is the one of the reasons I love music so much. It brings healing. It was truly incredible."
Q: What is your favorite part about being a singer-songwriter?
A: "I love the challenge of picking just the right lyric to paint a clear picture for the audience to see and feel exactly what I'm seeing and feeling. This helps us make a genuine connection as people, and it is why music is so powerful in people's lives."
Q: What is one thing you want people to know about you?
A: "I am an open book. What you see is what you get, and I'll probably talk your ears off."
Q: How can fans be involved with your music?
A: The easiest way to be involved is by joining my social sites and signing up for my e-mail list. I'd love to talk to you on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! It's the best way for us to get to know each other. I'd also love to play a show in your area! If you know of a festival or venue that would host me, just let me know.
