At what age did you begin singing or playing an instrument?
I started playing guitar when I was eight. My grandma made a bet saying that the first grandchild that learned how to play a musical instrument would get $50. So I hopped right on that 🙂
What inspired you to become a singer/musician?
I started playing guitar first. Around that time Taylor Swift grew in popularity and I started looking up to her as a role model. I started writing songs and eventually It was all I ever wanted to do!
What genre would you call your music?
I am a country artist but I’m still in the beginning stages of finding out who I am as an artist. I know I’m not “Country Pop” but I would probably solidify myself as “Country Rock.”
What have you learned from being a singer/musician?
After being in the music industry for a couple of years I’ve learned that anything is possible if you believe in it. This past year I’ve worked harder than I ever have and so many AMAZING things have came out of it. I’ve opened up for Hunter Hayes, Sawyer Brown, Scotty McCreery, LOCASH, etc.
Can you say a little about what being a singer/musician means to you?
To me being a singer/musician means that you can be who you want to be. I can express my feelings, I can express my music, and most importantly, I can express myself.
What part about being a singer/musician do you like most?
I love being able to perform on a big stage. My favorite shows are the shows that I get to open up for someone. I feel the excitement of the crowd, I feel the excitement from my band, and I vibe off of that so the show becomes such an adrenaline thing for me.
Have you made any friends because of being a singer/musician?
I honestly have more friends in the music business than I do outside of it. Last year I went all Virtual for my education so I really don’t have as many friends outside of music. But singers/musicians really understand what you are going through. They understand how important it is when you accomplish something that may not seem like a big deal to people that aren’t artists.
Have you traveled because of being a singer/musician?
OH YES! I travel to Nashville at least two times a month. I had the opportunity to perform in Washington, California, New York City, etc. So yes, being a singer/musician you definitely go all over the place!
Have you done something exciting because of being a singer/musician?
I have done so many things I have only dreamed of doing. I have gotten to perform at the Amway Center. The Amway Center is the big arena in Orlando. That was really cool for me because I was on the big jumbo-tron, had my own dressing room, and I really felt like a celebrity! Not to mention there was an hour and a half meet and greet line just for people to meet me!
