What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
Give us a little bio about you.
I am 26 years old and have been singing and have had a passion for music, for as long as I can remember. I grew up with my mom and brother in a small town in Alberta, Canada. We then moved to another smaller Alberta town when I turned 14, where my mom had met my step dad. I did various things throughout my life with music and learned it’s all about the people you know.
Tell us more about your music.
My music is your average country songs with a mix of Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town and The Band Perry. I do have one song on my EP written in memory of my biological dad who passed away Jan 2015.
Tell us more about your latest release and what else you have planned.
My latest release is an EP of which I had a lot of help to get me out there and follow my passion for music. I’ve learned a lot in the last year and a half I had never known before. The EP in itself has a lot of edge and emotion all built into four songs, and couldn’t imagine anything less out of my first public album.

The EP is already available on all major platforms. Links will be posted below.
