Releasing the Album ‘Into the Song’

When I was twelve years old, I wrote a song about owning the stars and wanting to shine… Releasing my debut record, Into the Song, was the closest I’ve ever felt to shining. It is an interesting thing releasing songs you wrote, especially living in a small town where most people can figure out who those songs are about. It makes you vulnerable and open. and those are things I don’t usually like to be. But it is an indescribable feeling pouring all my stories and emotions into this album and sending it out into the world for others to hopefully relate to. Music is so powerful and it connects the world through emotions in ways that are almost impossible to understand, and I love to be a part of that beautiful, strange connection.

I want to thank my incredibly talented producers Jeffrey Armstreet and Matt Kidd for making this album everything I imagined it would be. I am honored to have worked with such amazing producers and musicians and I enjoyed every minute of the recording process. Thank you to Red Tree Recording Studio for being my second home during the recording process and to Magnolia Red for the time and work put into the album. I could not be more pleased with the way Into the Song turned out. Recording this record was such an inspirational learning experience for me and I grew as an artist throughout the process. It is an indescribable feeling to send my stories out into the world to be heard by others and these stories could not have been told in the beautiful way that they were without the creative minds that spent countless hours on the album.

Thank you to my incredible fans. I am amazed by the amount of messages from people all over the world. It is so inspiring to hear the kind words of strangers that have listened to my music. I also want to thank my family and friends for always believing in me and encouraging me in every aspect of my life and music. I am so excited to start my journey as an artist with this album and with the support of so many wonderful people. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

lyrics that inspire

Lyrics that inspire me most

Hey y’all.

So I had a pretty rough weekend last week..and the only way I really deal with rough times is (of course) with music.. So this blog isn’t really a normal blog.. Instead I’m just gonna share with you all some of my favorite lyrics that inspire me the most.

“I will raise my hand up into the night time sky and count the stars shining in your eyes. I’ll be satisfied not to read in between the lines.” – Van Morrison

“When the rain is blowing in your face and the whole world is on your case.. I would offer you a warm embrace.. To make you feel my love.” – Bob Dylan

“The tears come streaming down your face when you lose something you can’t replace.. When you love someone but it goes to waste.. Could it be worse? Lights will guide you home. And ignite your bones.. And I will try to fix you.” – Coldplay

“All of these lines across my face tell you the story of who I am.. So many stories of where I’ve been and how I got to where I am.. But these stories don’t mean anything if you’ve got no one to tell them to. It’s true.. I was made for you.” – Brandi Carlile

“It’s only half past the point of no return.. The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn.. The thunder before the lightning and the breath before the phrase. Have you ever felt this way?” – Pink

“If you could go anywhere, anywhere, what would you see? Take a step in any direction.. just make believe. If your mind is always moving it’s hard to get your heart up off the ground.. Yeah, your mind was always moving but your thoughts never made a sound.” – Tristan Prettyman

“There are days when I wake up and don’t know what I’m doing here.. I barely recognize the pair of eyes staring back at me in the mirror. But there was a day when I was free, not a care that I could see.. So good I barely could believe that it was happening. Oh take me back again.” – Ben Rector

“It’s crazy here without you.. We used to think this all was ours. We’d stay up late, debate on how we’d find our way.. You’d say it’s all up in the stars.” – Fun.

“I hope when you take that jump you don’t feel the fall. I hope when the water rises, you build a wall. I hope when the crowd screams out, they’re screaming your name. I hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay.” – OneRepublic

Well I know this post wasn’t very personal or inspiring.. But it’s just what I needed to write this week.

And you’ll just have to live with that.

So yeah.

Just kidding.

But really.

peace & love
