About Me

A friend once said: “Songwriter’s stitch the fabric of humankind together.” …I like that.

I want to learn about all aspects of making and recording music, but my first love is writing. A farmer/rancher’s daughter, I believe in hard work, honesty and a playful life. I believe in people. My music is eclectic in both style and lyric content, hoping to touch all the facets that life has to offer.

I hope these selections begin to reflect at least a little of what is running around in my brain. I hope you like them! I’d love to get any constructive feedback you’d be willing to offer. Thank you!
