I believe every good song begins with a story. No matter what has happened in my own, whether it be struggle, pain, confusion, or joy, music has been there for me without judgment and without constraint. It reminds me that I’m not alone, helps me understand the world, and gives me hope for tomorrow. No matter how trapped I may feel by my circumstances, music finds a way to set me free.
I didn’t always plan on becoming a songwriter, but every decision I’ve made in my life boils down to choosing freedom. Freedom over security, freedom over expectation, and freedom over limits.
I’ve been musical for as long as I can remember. I learned to play the violin in kindergarten, sang in choirs, performed in musicals, at minor league baseball parks, and on dance teams. It was only a matter of time before I began writing my own songs. I figured out how to get one fully produced back in 2016 and haven’t looked back since.
The summer of my senior year of college I joined the “Gunnison Drive Band” and performed gigs all around Nebraska. Upon graduation, I had a choice to make, carve out a safe and comfortable life for myself or take a chance on something bigger. I choose to follow my heart down to Nashville Tennessee to pursue music. Coming up on my first year, I’ve produced four new singles, two music videos, and performed in venues big and small all around town. It isn’t always easy, but I can’t wait to find out what else is on the Horizon.
