The Story Behind 'Devil That I Could Be'

For those of you that have made it out to one of my shows, you've likely already heard this story. It's one I like to tell live. = )

For those of you who HAVEN'T, here the summary:

I wrote this song in college. It started as kind of a letter I never planned on sending to parents, explaining that while I was no longer their little 5 year old angel, I also was not a terrible person. I wrote this when I discovered that the world is so much less black and white than you think when you are younger - it's much more grey.

I think these sort of feelings are all just part of "growing up" - leaving behind the magical world of childhood and entering the often grey, dismal world of being an adult.

You can find this song on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and all the usual suspects,


'Electrocute Me' Music Video

I am so excited to release the music video for the title track of my EP, "Electrocute Me."

The music video was produced, directed, and edited by Big Dog Video Productions. We used House Studio DC for the studio shots, and the streets of Alexandria, VA for the street shots.

For me, the concept of both the music video and the song itself is having something "electrocute" you into truly living your life - to shock you out of your normal everyday.

Co-writing, Percussion, EP, Oh My!

I wanted to provide an update on what was going for me musically right now…


I recently had the cool experience of co-writing with another local DC Musician, Sarah Gilberg. It was a really fun experience! I met Sarah at a local gathering of female musicians where the whole group decided to pair up and writing a song on a topic. The overall theme for the entire group was “missing person”.

Exploring the Concept: Security Breeds Stagnation

I’ve been pondering the idea recently of being too safe in life and the consequences of that. I’ve been an overachiever my whole life. While I know that can sound a lot like bragging, but I’m not sure that the phrase doesn’t condemn me more than anything else. The people I’ve always looked up to in life are the ones that took the roads less traveled, that took chances and followed paths that felt right to them. 


Holiday Music

Whenever you catch a melody of a holiday tune, you are instantly transported back into your childhood home. You can smell your mother’s baking, see presents under the tree, and feel the warmth of the fire place. It’s truly amazing how a song takes you back there.

Fall Reminiscing

I don’t know what it is about fall and winter; but I get extremely sentimental this time of year. Sentimental for not only old places and old friends, but old versions of myself. Sometimes I seek the “me” from middle school, where fall meant Halloween costumes, decorating our yard as a graveyard (my mom had the most epic Halloween decorations).
