“I was happy with my career, but something inside of me felt a strong need to be expressed. I dealt with depression as a child, and the music was always very therapeutic for me. When I’m making music, I feel confident and alive! I hope i can inspire others to feel the same, wether it be through my music or myself as person.”

They can be funny and humorous yet witty and clever at the same time. I strive to make music that makes people feel good. I want to excite em’ up and empower them with confidence. I want my listeners to feel good and catch a positive vibe from my songs!”
