I've been singing all my life and professionally in Nashville for 9 years now. I've sang countless demos for songwriters that have been pitched to multiple country artists, although I'm mainly a pop/rock/r&b style singer. I've also written my own music, collaborated with many writers and have had my own song hit top of the charts in Texas.
I work in multiple genres including pop, rock, soul and r&b, country and jazz.
For the past 6 years I've performed with multiple cover bands in and out of Nashville and have recently released a quirky little EP on Spotify.
I'm a vocalist and that's what I'm here for! I would can sing any style for your demo or project and would also love to top line or write lyrics to a melody.
If you contact me about recording vocals for your song, please let me know if the song has been written fully or if you would like me to help with that process or if you simply have the music for a song, I would prefer the idea for what you want for the song and I can come up with a catchy melody and lyrics for it.
If you are planning on releasing something please let me know prior to that if you are thinking of using my name on it.
WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

A: I typically sing demos of multiple different styles for songwriters
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My favorite band EVER is Tune-Yards who I have always been inspired by since the moment I heard them. I love Banks, Lucius (they are poets), Raleigh Richie, John Legend, Alabama Shakes, Kings of Leon. Pretty much anyone who has soul.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I just work off my iMac and have a mic that goes in the USB port and I have a room dedicated to recording with soundproof walls.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If i'm writing I typically will come up with a melody first and then put words to it and then figure out how the music or track should go.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Raw energy, quirkiness, soul and edge.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can pretty much sing in any style.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love anything with a heavy bass line or rhythmic drums and lots of harmonies. Usually Pop or Indie Alternative stuff with attitude.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always record multiple takes and get creative because you never know what can organically come out of trying to sing something a little bit different than you did the last take.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: TUNE-YARDS. Just all around the most creative music I've ever heard and would love to collaborate with her.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Powerfully soulful, edgy and raw
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I wanted to ultimately be an artist, but there was more money in just singing for other people either in the studio or live in a band. So I've been doing mostly that for about 9 years.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Ukulele, pen and paper, laptop (and a generator I guess?), a mic, and a bottle of tequila
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I love to get creative so if you bring something to me that I can vibe with, my creative process will do the rest of the work.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of song or style they are hoping to achieve from the track and how exact or non exact does the melody need to be?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm not just a performer, I NEED a creative outlet, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to have that.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Have you ever thought about doing the artist thing? And the answer is well yes, but I like collaborating and trying to make someone else's idea a reality.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making people happy and excited about what I do.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'm a perfectionist when it comes to this stuff, so you won't being getting anything I wouldn't want to release myself
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: BRING ON BOTH
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Alaina Cross, she's got such a rich pop sound and she's actually one of the nicest people I've met in Nashville
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently working on creating more with my brother who has recently gotten into production. We've got that brotherly bond that has been really fun to work with.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Again, the recent little EP we did last time I went home. Was just so chill and fun and had so many laughs. I sang over and wrote a few tracks he had already made and then we created a few together!
