“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you meant for in the first place.”
This is my coming home.
I have loved every laugh, every cry, and every experience that singing has given me. I grew up singing in my beloved city of New Orleans, in church choirs, in jazz clubs, to my principal in the kindergarten (even made her cry, I was so proud!) Singing provides such an energy that sometimes it can’t be explained. Being able to share a moment with one song, whether it’s a cover or one of my originals, is just amazing.
My mother was a trained soprano and sang constantly during my childhood. My mornings were filled with Doris Day and my evenings were filled with Mahalia Jackson. To remind me of my heart in New Orleans, my favorite songs to sing are love songs – old and new. Love makes us feel good, and so should music. I have always loved helping people make sense of their lives or their souls. It’s my heart’s desire to continue this dream!
I can go from beautiful to sweet to sassy in just a few songs, but there’s always some soul in my music. I strive for authenticity; it’s our true self. Music should be our true self and I am my music. I love music, I love singing, and I love you.
