Gathering up the courage to move to Nashville and follow my dreams brought challenges that left me no choice but to rise to a new bar of writing, singing, and belief in myself…resulting in the creation of what I feel is my best work as an artist. ‘The darkness always comes, but so does the dawn.’”
It’s a snapshot of the mosaic that’s made up my life thus far. A gateway to the expression of who I am and who I am evolving myself to become as an artist. Through these stories and songs, I hope to touch your heart with comfort and optimism that will bring you peace, no matter how things may appear on the outside.
