I absolutely would not be where I am today without the support of all the wonderful people around me. Thank you to my parents for coming to every show and helping me set up and clean up and for paying for all the piano and guitar and voice lessons among so many other things. Thank you to my brother for always sticking by my side and for not getting annoyed when I practice guitar for hours on end. Thank you to my friends for being my fans too and believing in me more than I do. Thank you to all my teachers, music-related and not, for your patience with me especially when I wouldn’t speak up in class (I was probably putting my thoughts into a song, sorry). Thank you to my partner for putting together this website and putting up with me and being the most wonderful cheerleader. Thank you to my grandma for letting me use your maiden name.
Thank you to Taylor Swift for being the reason I picked up the guitar in the first place and haven’t put it down. Thank you to The Beatles, Tom Petty, Hall & Oates, the Indigo Girls, James Taylor for raising my love for music. Thank you to Steve Poltz for teaching me how to tell stories and then telling me to never give up on this dream while we chatted at your merch table. Thank you to Troye Sivan, Hayley Kiyoko, Bleachers, Janelle Monáe, Lorde, Joseph, Wrabel, Panic! At The Disco, The 1975, King Princess, Conan Gray for making me feel heard. Thank you to every incredible musician I’ve ever performed alongside for being part of my journey. Thank you to any artist who’s inspired me and showed me how to exist in and push the boundaries of this industry.
Thank you to everyone I’ve ever written a song about. Thank you to everyone whose music I’ve sung at a gig. Thank you to everyone who’s let me sing at their venue, especially the Sunflour Bakehaus and the Farmington Civic Theater. Thank you to everyone who actually watches my YouTube videos and streams my songs and tells their friends to buy my songs. Thank you to everyone who genuinely believes I can make a career out of this. Thank you to anyone who’s actually read this whole thing. You’re incredible, and I couldn’t have done this without you.
