    Who's Gonna Save You Now

    I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t inspired by music. I was raised in a house where great music played loudly—the Beatles, James Taylor, Carole King, Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel. Ten years ago, I believed I could make music my career, but somewhere along the way, I stopped believing because it wasn’t “practical.” During the last year, I’ve experienced the way life moves outside your control in a way that brings you to your knees. These changes remind me: life is short, spend your time on things that spark your passion. Currently in the midst of finishing my first album, I’ve been working hard to create pieces that move, inform and challenge me. I am inspired by artists who work within the framework of the music industry, but have also chosen paths that allow them creative control. I write about what I know: life, love, loss, faith, fear, hope—universal things that encourage us to move beyond just ourselves and hold fast to truth.
