For as long as I can remember, I have always been seen as the girl that kept to herself, quietly working, sensitive and shy.
Growing up, that felt like a curse.
I was never popular and never tried to be someone I wasn't.
I just wanted to be accepted for who I was.
I grew up in Ohio writing stories to song,
spending many nights sitting on my bedroom floor with
a keyboard and notebook.
When I wrote my emotions down with pen on paper, it made it easier to feel the heartbreak and happiness of healing.
I found my own strength and solace in a space where judgement was non-existent.
I hold tightly and embrace that person inside that I tried to run so anxiously from.
I continue to find myself in the late night writing sessions when everything feels like its going wrong,
in the small victories,
and in the moments when truth wins.
How I speak, how I love, and how I move.
This is what I write about.
The thing I love most about music is that all you need is an idea.
A simple thought, a feeling, an experience, and heartbreak.
The familiar feelings that remind you that everything will be alright.
These are the monumental moments that seem so small.
Music makes you feel it all over again.
This is why I write.
This is how we feel the same things.
Raw and alive - woven from the same threads.
I am a songwriter and producer.
I have played piano for years, yet I continue to stay rusty.
I don’t have perfect pitch and I am okay with that.
