Two Old Hippies

401 12th Ave S, Nashville, TN, 37203


Music has power. Since I was a little girl growing up in Alabama, I've been mesmerized by how enchanting music is. By the time I was 3, I was holding down the melody while my mom sang out the harmonies of "From This Moment On" (the great Shania Twain). Whether it was yet another song from the countless Disney movies I watched or jingles from school to help me learn my presidents, music rooted itself in my mind and never let go. It changes atmospheres. It holds memories I don't even remember until they rush back with a song I haven't heard in years. Without a single word it could tell me to be happy, sad, afraid, or courageous. It can tear down or build up. It can have a positive impact or a negative one. I didn't yet realize that words and melodies could have so much power.

I started songwriting at age 15 because it was therapeutic for me. It made me feel good. I started college as a music major and began touring with a college vocal group, traveling across the eastern part of the country from Florida to New York City as well as to Singapore and Indonesia. I even had the privilege of singing at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration of President Obama. But something kept drawing me to Nashville, a magical place where the heartbeat of music can be felt on every street corner... or so I thought.

I later moved to the Nashville area and learned a lot. For starters, it wasn't all unicorns and rainbows. Music City works just as hard as it plays. Don't get me wrong. There is magic there, but it comes with blood, sweat, and tears. More than that, music began to take on new life for me. In the past few years of being here, I have been blessed to perform in venues of 10,000+ capacity, with artists such as Charlie Daniels and Michael W Smith, and have been able to record on several projects including my first solo project that released in the fall of 2016.

I feel so blessed to make music a part of my life on a daily basis. It's a huge honor and responsibility to make music that makes you feel something, even if that something just helps fuel a party on a Friday night. It's my hope that this music brings joy to you as it has brought me so much joy in making it.
