WHAT HER MUSIC SOUNDS LIKE

A contemporary mix of folk, country, gospel and bluegrass, featuring well-crafted and commercially appealing melodies. The lyrical content is positive, genuine, engaging and appealing to a diverse audience.

WHY HER MUSIC IS UNIQUE

Everything from the vocals to the melodies to the production distinguishes her sound from other artists in the genre. At the same time, it maintains a commercial appeal and is something people connect with immediately.

WHAT SHE HAS TO OFFER AS AN ARTIST, IN HER OWN WORDS

I have always viewed music as the soundtrack of life, playing in the background of our amazing journeys. There are so many songs that transport me to a special moment in the past or provide me with inspiration just when I need it most. In my view, that’s what music was created for.

It’s my desire that my songs hold the same kind of magic and move the hearts and emotions of everyone who hears them. They are brought forth with an open, honest and uplifting spirit, intent on promoting all that’s good in the world.
