When I was a very young child my dad kept a guitar in the living room, that he never really played. I remember vividly on one occasion, starting to strum the bottom three strings sequentially as it stood on its stand. Naturally, as I plucked the strings, I became inspired, and a melody poured out. When I was seven, I started to hear songs I made up in my head and would write them down in a notebook, not knowing anything about music. When I turned fifteen my dad gave me his guitar and I started teaching myself how to play. Then I started writing songs by ear. Music to me then became a very spiritual and magical experience that came from “the otherside.”
I’ve been a dancer all my life, and still take ballet to this day. I learned that in most languages around the world, the word “dance” and “music” are actually the same word! Makes perfect sense to me.
My spirituality is a huge part of my creativity. I have to be in tune with my soul in order to express it. Meditation, journaling, connecting to nature, and practicing present moment awareness are all important parts of the creative equation, and just feeling better in general.
It was a life-long dream to release an EP, and I finally self-released “The Mountains Inside” in 2021. I produced and recorded it myself, so it was a huge accomplishment for me.
I have a dream-pop inspired single coming out at the end of July. I also am looking forward to writing a full-length album even though I’m aware it’s a feat these days.
I recently collaborated with a hip-hop artist, which I never thought I would do since it’s very opposite to my normal indie-rock genre...It was actually really fun and a unique challenge. I was impressed at how powerful it turned out. Tune in for that coming out in the future as well!
