Born and raised in Maryland, the country twang that inevitably laces every note that comes out of my mouth is highly unexpected. What most people don’t know is that Maryland actually falls just below the Mason-Dixon line, so for all intents and purposes, I’m a southerner…at least that’s what I like to tell myself. Not only that, I grew up listening to 90’s country in the car with my grandmother, a native Tennessean herself, and I immediately became hooked to iconic artists like Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, George Strait, Lonestar, Reba, Faith Hill, Alison Kraus, and the Dixie Chicks…among many others. When it came time for me to leave home, I could hear Nashville calling my name. Loaded up with big dreams, my guitar, and a whole lot of faith, I made the journey down to Music City where I’ve spent the last four years attending college at Belmont University, and working in the industry at various companies including Interscope Records, Universal Music, The Recording Academy, Cal IV and Creative Nation, as well as songwriting, networking, and performing at various venues around town. I sing and write music that aims to inspire others and empower them to be themselves, chase their dreams, change the world, laugh, cry, dance, forgive, sing, and dare to love. I’m currently touring, writing, and recording with my band MamaDear. Visit our website to stay up to date with our latest happenings.
