I'm a 16 year old singer/songwriter who graduated from high school early to pursue music full time. I love writing songs to encourage and empower. I was awarded "Best Song" and "Best Pop Song" for my song "Whisper" in the 2018 Knoxville Music Awards and inducted into "Knoxville's 20 Under 20" by the Knoxville News Sentinel and KnoxBiz.
