Band Bio

-- Thomas Conner, Chicago Sun-Times

“I want to be known as someone who is not afraid of being real,” she said. “Through my songwriting, storytelling, and essays, I dive into the vulnerable parts of the human experience. I started writing songs as a way to make sense of the world around me and my own emotional landscape. Truthfully, I write to stay sane and stay alive. At some point along the way, I realized that the songs and stories were helping other people make sense of their experiences, too. I’m fascinated by what we find when the masks and layers are gone, and how much the same we all are at the core. Contrary to popular belief, vulnerability is not weakness. It is strength. You can’t take the beautiful, messy humanity out of life. Every time I take the stage or write a song, my hope is that when it's over the listener will feel less alone in their lives. It's the one thing we all need, especially in these times."
