My debut album “Paradise” is released just in time for summer and I could not be more anxious to share it with you! My story has been filled with some meaningful highs and although I try not to focus on the lows, they are captured. It took five years of saving for this record, which encapsulates my deepest emotions for the entire world to hear.
Country music has always resonated with me because of it’s authentic style of storytelling. It is a genre that has a way of pulling on your heart strings through raw instrumentation and simplistic melody lines. On my EP, each track is different from the next but at it’s core, this music has elements that everyone can relate to.
There’s a song about gratitude for the simple joys of summer followed by a song about the deepest heartache I’ve ever experienced. A little something for everyone.
I will be writing an entry about the meaning behind each and every lyric on this recording. I will also share with you the thrills of being in the studio, the trials I overcame in the process and the lessons learned throughout the journey of recording a self-funded album. ALL. BY. MYSELF. No management team. No financial backers. No friends helping a sister out. I often light-heartedly share that this journey was more work than my three-year Mental Health Counseling graduate program. But hard work always pays off and I know there are wonderful things just waiting on the horizon!
“Paradise” is now available on iTunes, Spotify and I’m even working on my own Pandora channel! You can order your very own autographed copy for you true supporters out there. In all honesty, I am able to keep a small profit without third party vendors involved… So if you want music in the future, buying the actual hardcopy will help me as an artist!
