I was born and raised in Stillwater, Minnesota on February 1, 1988. Stillwater is the birthplace of Minnesota and is a Wisconsin border town. I’ve been blessed with such a wonderful and supportive family and friends! My parents brought me up in a house full of love and a lot of country music! We listened to many country artists such as; Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, George Strait, Tanya Tucker, Garth Brooks and many more!
My love for music grew as I got older. I joined choir in elementary school and continued to participate throughout the years. When I was 16, I began to realize how much I really love singing country music. I’d have my parents take me to different karaoke shows to get out and be heard, as well as gain a good feel of singing in front of crowds. After a while my voice became well known locally, and have met some really great people along the the way beginning my passion and journey of country music.
After realizing my talent and having so much fun singing, my family and I thought it would be a good idea to go to Nashville,TN and record an eight song demo. The songs were produced by Duane Sciacqua, written by Becky Hobbs, and I also had great studio musicians as well. These great people got me moving on the right track!
Since we recorded the demo, I have sang at many different venues including; Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Music City Bar and Grill, Nashville Palace, Nashville Crossroads, Midwest Country Theater, Toby Keith’s Bar & Grill, Ramble Jam in Minnesota, Medina Ballroom and many more. Along my fabulous journey I’ve been fortunate enough to sing with great artists such as Tommy Cash (Johnny’s brother), Steve Hall and the Shotgun Red Band, Clinton Gregory, Buddy Owens, and many more.
I have done many radio interviews with online stations, as well as KKIN in Aitkin, MN. All of them have been very good to me! Just recently I had the pleasure of singing on the Midwest Country Show in Sandstone, Minnesota and was later aired on RFD-TV on March 26, 2011. Shortly thereafter, I did another show at Midwest Country Theater with Tommy Cash. This show was aired on RFD-TV as well on August 20, 2011. I was honored that my performances were viewed throughout 27 countries!
Currently, I am performing at numerous venues throughout the upper midwest with a local band by the name of 2 Mile Final. I am pursuing a solo singing career in the Country Music industry, and hope to someday travel much further.
