Success for me is when you’ve played as big a part as you can in making the world a better place.

In my opinion, success is when you accomplish what you set out do; and for me, that means making a difference with what I’m doing. It’s not about fame and money; that’s not what I think of when I think of success. I believe it’s when you’ve played as big a part as you can in making the world a better place.

The most helpful piece of music advice I’ve ever been given was…
to always stay true to who you are – no matter what. I imagine a steel rod, and that rod represents my morals, preferences, goals, everything; and every time I’m faced with a question or a decision, I imagine I’m holding tight to that steel rod, and it helps me to stay true to myself with every decision I make.

My music is…
My music is like a mix of Halsey, Imagine Dragons, and Taylor Swift, with a little Christina Perri sprinkled on top. I consider myself an inspirational pop singer/songwriter. The main goal I have for my music is positivity. I want to be a good influence and inspiration for my generation. There’s a lot of bad influences in the pop genre right now, and I hope to make a positive difference in that realm, through my music and my actions.




Song name: Follow My Heart
Music Genre:: Pop

This song is about…
This song is about following your heart and dreams, despite what anyone else has to say. I wrote this song in hopes that when others heard it, they would in turn do what they believe in, and follow through to the end.

I live in…
 I live in the town of Zachary, Louisiana. Zachary is a small suburb, just north of the state capitol, Baton Rouge, and not too far from New Orleans. The music scene in my area is pretty centered around country music, which makes it difficult for me to break in, being a pop artist. But my town has been nothing but supportive of both me and my career, and they try to help in whatever way they can. I’m extremely grateful for that.
