In sessions “she plays to the room” bringing out the best in artists she works with and giving her all when she’s makin her original music. With each release she shows growth and maturity not only in her songwriting but production style. A must listen!

She is amazing. Whether she's behind the mic, on the console, or brainstorming lyrics and melodies, she rocks. And she's so easy to work with. I highly recommend her.
