I've been singing for as long as I can remember! I did my first live performance when I was 7 years old for a local singing competition. After that, I was hooked. I started writing songs when I was about 10. In high school, I was encouraged to continue working on my songwriting skills and to use the high school's recording to studio to record some of my early originals. I started regularly playing at school events, local venues and busking in my hometown. After high school I moved to Toronto and started doing gigs at different bars and restaurants. This spring, I spent my time in the studio working on my EP "Twenty/Twenty" which was released this fall. This EP is my first professionally produced album and is a true representation of the artist and songwriter I am today. Even though I've been at it for a few years, my journey as a musician has only just begun and I'm really excited to see where it will take me.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The first concert I ever went to was in the fall of 2011 at Ontario Place to see Ed Sheeran. He was still working his way to the top so it was a smaller concert. Passenger opened for him. He was incredible and I've been madly in love with his music ever since.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
The biggest audience I ever performed to was at the Mod Club in Toronto. It was for a RAW Artists Showcase and it was so cool to play in such a big venue.
As for small shows, I've played a good handful of them in the last few years. I feel that those are the shows that the most interesting audience connections and interactions happen. They remind you that the people you play to are an integral role in this job.
