living in the south, I feel there is no greater betrayal than receiving an iced tea when you ask for sweet tea at a restaurant. if you do this to me, you are letting me know you cannot be trusted.

also hi!! I took a break from social media, and then from music stuff while I traveled to Oregon. I loved it and feel inspired to make some new stuff. I will share some new songs as I make them. hope you are doing well :)

my vocal coach said I've improved at writing after reviewing my last track. and then my grandmother and uncle both said they could see me writing good songs, when I told them I've been putting work into that. I feel motivated to keep going, though I haven't shared much lately.

also, I dug through my parents' basement and found my old four-track recorder from early college days. hope to play with it in the near future..

laryngitis is possibly the woooorst thing that could happen to an aspiring singer. writing a song through coughing fits tonight.

wrote another song tonight.. that's four for this month alone. need to record them all sometime.

Left work early due to anxiety, and spent the evening feeling down on myself. Somehow, I managed to write a full song within an hour about my feelings.. and now I feel worlds better.

finished writing two songs today! I'm going to take a little break for now, but I might start writing a third later.

Had an AMAZING time at Matthew Dear's show last night. Already love his albums, but he's an incredible live performer too. Check out his stuff!! Here's "Her Fantasy":

Any and all feedback is welcome as I start to share some recordings with you all. I like to think I do a good job identifying weak areas and areas for improvement, but don't feel like you can't chime in! I'm a grown up and can handle feedback.

did an off-the-cuff, lazy cover of "Always on My Mind" acapella so my friend could her my vibrato. check it out here!

also, I should adhere to these principles from Carlos Maza:

- drink water
- practice self-compassion
- embrace vulnerability
- ask for help

pretty sure I had a panic attack at work on Thursday. note to self: don't drink coffee with any sort of regularity.

I'm sorry for the delay on this one, but I thank you for your patience! Here is the demo of my song, "Two Weeks", with vocals. Check it out!

Am sitting down for the first time in what feels like forever to work on some songs..
