Over 6 years ago, I packed my bags and headed for the Big Apple in hopes of taking all the poetry and lyrical notes I've written over the years and making it into music that people can enjoy. I made a pit stop in my hometown, Jacksonville, FL and decided it was time to put my writing to the test. I wrote for magazines all throughout the east coast on the arts and health, joined a talent agency, auditioned over and over for roles that I wasn't sure was a good fit for my long-term goals as a songwriter. I painted and sold some things, but deep down, I knew songwriting was my main passion. I worked long hours on and still do, on vocal training, collaborating with producers, reaching out to people in the communities where I've traveled to back and forth in my 2 door. Lived in Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, and now I'm in Charleston, SC promoting my first album "Deconstructing Love". It's been a long road, literally and figuratively, but I hope you find it just as wild and interesting as most of my friends and family do.
My training started as a young child on the piano. My family is very musical with my god mother being a classically trained opera singer and my brother teaching himself how to play different instruments and being involved in bands all throughout our growing up. I sang in talent shows in school, and took dance classes all throughout my youth and was a dance minor in college, until I injured my knee and realized I could not perform in that capacity and sustain a career as a modern dancer. But I continued to write all throughout these changes, got poetry published, and sought out other musicians and producers alike to work with. I believe music is at its best when you collaborate with others that care about your vision.
