I started writing songs in high school and started playing shows towards the end of high school. I have continued to write and play ever since.
I write and sing with the aim of honesty, clarity, and bravado in my music, pulling my favorite elements from my fellow artists I know personally and those I don't. Mostly, it's the deep connection I have with friends and family who are passionate about their art that shapes my sound. I thrive on the aesthetically pleasing but unexpected in my music, be it though unconventional chord progressions, occasional spoken word, the melding of sacred and personal subjects together, and experimental song structure. I favor simple acoustic and piano arrangements with rich lyrics and hope to be continuously exploring new facets to integrate with my musical foundation.
