I'm starting a vlog... to say that you don't have to follow what everyone else wants you to do or what you think you need to do, you just need to listen to your heart and what you really want to do and that's where success comes. In saying that, I'm going to prove a point and do it myself. This vlog is my way of keeping track and letting you in on my journey to show you that when you really realize what it is you're meant to do that you need to just do it!Read More
Since I was six years old playing “hot cross buns” at my first piano recital, I dreamed of becoming a professional musician. I envisioned myself traveling around on private jets and tour buses, playing for sold-out crowds every night. For many musicians, landing a tour would be the fulfillment of their greatest childhood dream. But what is it really like? Is it all it appears to be in the movies?Read More

Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was so ready to get my career started that I drove to Nashville the day after I graduated college.

One of the reasons I’m scared to make a budget is because I don’t want to know how much I spend every year on coffee. I’m not a coffee nerd who grinds their own beans, has a Chemex, and shudders at the thought of flavored creamer. But I do enjoy going to coffee shops and have made a list of some of my Nashville favorites.Read More
Just keep quiet.
Women aren’t cut out for leadership positions.
Don’t let your feelings get in the way.

Urban Dictionary defines hustle as “to have the courage, confidence, self-belief, and self-determination to go out there and work it out until you find the opportunities you want in life.” That definition alone makes me want to go out and get things done! I would love to be described as someone who has hustle. But what happens when we aren’t seeing visible results? What happens when we don’t know what opportunities we want, so therefore we don’t know what options to chase? I want to give some personal advice and practical steps that have helped me in my journey.Read More
It wasn’t too long ago that I remember feeling like I had nowhere to turn for music business advice or inspiration. I didn’t have a “tribe” of peers to hang out with or to celebrate successes with. And most of all I was tired of feeling like the music industry was competitive, because I truly believe that there is power in working together and lifting each other up!Read More
