I’m the type of girl who likes to run around barefoot and dance in the rain. I live and breathe music and it plays a big role in my life. My songs are my sense of freedom. I can write about anything and no one can change it. They allow me to let go of things that are really bugging me.
I play the piano and guitar. I’ve been singing since I could talk, but it wasn’t until I was 11 that I started to write songs. My inspiration for writing music was a result of a poetry project my English teacher assigned. I realized that poetry came naturally to me. Whenever I am frustrated, sad, or excited about school, friends, or boys, I let out my emotions into a song. Sometimes I write the lyrics first and then I play around on the piano or my guitar to add the melody. Other times, I’m playing the piano or guitar and a song flows out based on what I’m feeling.
I love a lot of different types of music but my favorite is pop/country. When I am angry or upset, I like listening to slow sad songs that
