I am thrilled and pumped and all the other good feelings I can feel about finally sharing my debut single "Innocent Flower" with the world!

In William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Lady Macbeth advises Macbeth to “look like an innocent flower, but be the serpent under it.” She is encouraging him to appear safe and play the welcoming host to the king so that no one will suspect his true intention. In the case of my song, “Innocent Flower,” it is an internal battle and the fight against the demons in our own minds. Our strong and powerful brains appear as a welcoming home but can lead us into destruction if we allow it. This song was written when I felt at war with myself. My brain took me to dark and toxic places during time set aside for processing, reflection, and healing. It’s vulnerable to open up about mental and inner struggles, but the lyrics of this song felt like they wrote themselves and brought me so much clarity and joy along the way.

I am a long time singer/songwriter
(I am from Nashville, so we all knew this was inevitable). I even got an emphasis in it while studying at Boston Conservatory. I would describe my style as folk/pop with nods to jazz and occasionally country (again, Nashville, y'all).
Songwriting has been a fulfilling and necessary outlet where I can process the state of our world, my relationships, and the ongoing roller coaster of daily life. I have themes of writing about feminism, social justice, human dynamics, and sometimes love.
