    Words Ain't Enough
I was 23 when my friend left his guitar in my car before moving across country. I would text him and be like "Yo, send me your address so I can get this guitar back to you." He never did and I felt like it was such a shame that no one was playing it so I thought...
"why not me?" I could learn guitar. I would look up the chords to my favorite songs late at night and figure out how to play them and it wasn't long before I thought "well, two months ago I thought I could never learn guitar, who's to say I could never write a song?" I always thought song writers had this gift that you were either born with or not and it was something I could never do, but it became this new outlet where I could work though my feelings about feelings an inadequacy and love loss.
Last year was especially tough and I took the year to disappear from the internet and write an album. Now I'm releasing the album one song at a time to tell my story.
Some of my favorite artists are Half Alive, Sasha Sloan, Nina Nesbitt, Phoebe Bridgers, Troye Sivan, Billie Eilish, Paramore, Twenty One Pilots, Lorde, Taylor Swift.
