What is your genre of music?
Give us a little bio about you.
Texas girl. Half country. Half pop. All soul.
What made you go into music?
I love performing. I love getting to see an audience get into it and let loose and smile. There’s nothing like it.
Are you a signed artist?
You released your new single ‘Like I Like Me’, tell us more about the single.
It’s all about lovin’ yo self!! Its release was set for Valentines Day as a self-love promotion
What is the meaning behind ‘Like I Like Me’.
As a single 20-something, I’ve been guilty of falling in “like” quite regularly, while dating. Like I Like Me champions the idea of setting some priorities in the dating game, and also being in “like” with yourSELF. Cause, no matter how much you like a person, if they’re treating you poorly, it’s time to activate your self-like and move on.
Describe the track in two words.
What was the writing process like?
It was written with my friend Adam Sickler. I came in with this doo-oppy melody and a recent break up story and we ran with it. He put a killer guitar part to it and we took a lot of time together to find the write hook. Eventually we got it and out popped “Like I Like Me.”
What was the recording process like?
We recorded it in stages! The demo was recorded in our friends’ bedroom at an apartment complex in Nashville. Adam produced the rest at his house. When I decided to release it, my friend Kevin Joyce laid some drums on the demo and my friend Casey Wood mixed and mastered it at his studio.
Who did you work with on the Single?

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
My goal is to be performing and spreading music year round all over the country
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
I have a job in the business world getting people out of their timeshare contracts. It’s a part of my life that is completely separate from music and enables me to grow my business acumen.
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
Oh man. Too many to count. Probably something by Kacey Musgraves.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
“You only have two things in life- your name and your word.” So basically, keep your word. Cause that and your name are all that you really have.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
Probably just to have fun with it. So many people are so serious on stage and there’s definitely a time for that. But sometimes I think audiences find it easier to connect with an artist who’s havin’ a good time up there and being silly.

“There’s no such thing as strangers. Just friends I haven’t met yet.”
