Tell us about yourself and what you do.
I am an almost seventeen year old girl from Magnolia, Texas. I am either writing, singing, playing, listening to, or dancing stupidly to music at all times. I have a passion for traveling and I love exploring new places and meeting new people. I drink way too much coffee and sweet iced tea. I love my family, friends, fans, and my dog, Willow… She is my biggest fan.
How did you start out?
I started playing guitar when I was nine years old. My grandpa was throwing away his old Conn and I just could not let a good guitar go to waste, so I rescued it from the trash and sat on my bedroom floor for endless hours teaching myself chords. My passion for music continued to grow as I started writing songs about life and boys (of course) and eventually turned into something that I know I want to do for the rest of my life.
What is your current release?
On June 30th I released my first EP, Into the Song and I’m planning to go back into the studio very soon.
What is the best part of being a singer/song writer?
The best part of being a singer/songwriter to me is the opportunity to share my stories with anyone that wants to listen. I write the songs for me, inspired by my own emotions and situations, but I also get to send my stories out into the world for others to listen to and relate to their own lives and that is the coolest thing to me.
