I'm originally from and currently live in Keller, Texas. My music writing journey started in 2010 when gifted a ukulele while living in NYC and going to dance school at Alvin Ailey. I played piano growing up and always wrote bits and pieces of jingles and melodies but it wasn't until I was given that ukulele (and stuck on my ass, depressed, and healing from injuries) that I became obsessed with crafting full songs.
In the summer of 2013 I met producer Rene Veron who inspired and encouraged me to share my ideas by playing live and recording an EP. I released my first EP 'Bella Vista' in 2015. Built a band and began gigging like crazy in the Tri-State area.
One of my good friends once described the music I play as “cowgirl-mermaid" and it has stuck ever since. I am constantly writing new songs and no matter what happens, I always will. For me, writing songs is the best form of healing. It is the mode I can best articulate and process how I feel. Whether you dance, cry, surf, snowboard, study, make friends, make love, drive, sing, run or roll down a hill to my music - I hope it brings you the most joy and helps you process and feel more in tune with your own sparkly shining insides.
Thanks for the support! Love you.... for a long time.
PS. Slide into my DMs or shoot me an email. If you're picking up what I'm putting down (w music), I'm sure we'd get along as friends
