“I’ve been writing original music for quite some time, and every song says something different about my journey to where I am now. These songs are my release, my therapy, and my one true love.”

Her influences include most female singer/songwriters such as Carol King, Carly Simon, Sheryl Crow, Fiona Apple, and Tori Amos. Yet she also shares a bit of her rocker side by looking up to classic rock musicians like Led Zeppelin, Elton John, and Billy Joel. Her sound is unique, soulful, and classic to say the least.
