I’m a 14 year old singer/songwriter from Canton, Ga. I have been writing music and singing for as long as I can remember. My grandpa said he used to pick me up from preschool and I would sing him a song I wrote. I picked up a guitar when I was 9, and I was instantly hooked. I decided to play guitar because of Taylor Swift. (of course!) She inspires me every day to keep at it. She made her dreams come true, so I know I can too.
I’ve never been very “technical” when it comes to music. I can’t explain how I write a song. It’s not that simple. Every word you sing needs to come straight from the heart. When you write a song, you feel it. You know exactly what happened and how it made you feel. That’s why I love writing music.
I have had an amazing year. In October 2011, I had the opportunity to open up for Sonia Leigh at the Variety Playhouse! While I was there, I met Zac Brown backstage. Best night of my life! Also, my song “Butterflies” has been on 94.9 The Bull Backyard County. It was a dream come true to hear my song on the radio! I have performed at Open Mics all over the Atlanta area, including Eddie’s Attic, the Cumming Playhouse , and Crimson Moon in Dahlonega. I have also performed in the Open Mic at the Bluebird Café in Nashville and in the “Rising Star” contest at Puckett’s, just outside of Nashville.
If I’m not performing, I’m most likely with friends. My friends are my life. My family and friends support me in everything I do.
I can’t wait to see what my future holds. I know one thing for sure; music will be part of it!
