A little over two years ago I moved to Nashville. I moved across the country at eighteen years old. Needless to say, a lot has happened between then and now; a lot of songwriting, a lot of maturing, a lot of finding out who I am and a lot of understanding how to pay my bills. Recently I have had a lot of people ask me what I’ve been up to down here. I’m excited to announce that I will be releasing an acoustic music video today, this blog (which you're reading) and uploading some of the songs I have been writing the last few years to Soundcloud. The last two years, I have purposely not released anything as to keep my focus on becoming an artist while not worrying too much about what the outcome may look like. I have read a lot of self-help books and done quite a bit of soul searching to get these songs and I am proud of that journey.
Now being down here has had a lot of twists and turns, which I will tell you about in later blogs, but I am loving life! I arrived here fresh out of high school, worked at the mall for 18 moths (while also juggling music), decided I wanted to just focus on music, then landed on a happy medium of working in a small boutique 20 minutes outside of Nashville and balancing my songwriting. Other than working and music I have made a lot of life-long friends (some not so life-long) and fallen in love with a Belmont grad who now produces almost all of my songs (you could say it's mutually beneficial). I also added a puppy to my life last February, even after everyone warned me not to and told me how much work and money they are. I did eventually learn that (thanks mom and dad for helping me out). All in all, these past two years have treated me well and I am excited to begin sharing that journey with you.
