These songs are about pain.
We are all holding on, struggling to keep our fragile lives still.
Sometimes all we see is the dirt in our lives and relationships,
but there is value in the struggle.
Scrape the dirt away and see the gold.

The sound of the beauty and the breaking. The feeling of finally being well, or the chaos of a dark day. I have always focused on being honest and transparent in my writing, never cowering away from the aches and pains of life. I believe this is one of the reasons we are here, to feel. To feel every part of our existence, to take in the beautiful and to stand in the trenches of a broken life.
I mix folk and alternative sounds with spoken word poetry, storytelling, and nostalgia to create carefully crafted songs with a variety of instruments.
I was born in Tennessee, and I come from a large family of creatives. We moved around a lot, I have lived in 20 different houses in 21 years, and have had to leave a lot of friends behind. I am a songwriter, I write about the things I can't say out loud. Grief, family, bitterness, deep love, regret, longing, friendship, and basically anything that pulls me. I hope you feel what I feel through these sounds, and have a way to say the things you can't explain.
