Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I'm from North Dakota and still live here as of now. So far, I’ve only lived in ND. Who has been your greatest influence? I have many influences. But my top ones are: Loretta Lynn, Danielle Bradbery, Gabby Barrett, Miranda Lambert, Eric church, and Johnny cash. I am very into older country. But I also love new country. I have been told I sound like the younger Verizon of Loretta Lynn which is a huge and honoring compliment. What is your latest and greatest? I recently started a country band. We play old and new country and we are getting ready to start booking soon. I’ve been able to network like crazy in this pandemic over instagram lives and co-writes with artists my age across the country.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021? I hope to record some original music in Nashville in the summer of 2021. What would you say to your younger self if you could? I never thought I would be a singer/performer. So I would say, even if you feel like your dreams are far out of reach in the beginning, if you work hard towards them and let no one stop you, you can accomplish them! It doesn’t matter if your from a small town, if you’ve got the heart and determination for music, follow that passion even in the hardest times. On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you? To make my dreams come true, I feel like I’m an eight to nine. Each year I try to step it up and work even harder but I still like to make as much time for my family and friends.
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? Luck isn’t something I necessarily believe is the key to success. Like I said, hard work and passion is key to success. Nothing is a coincidence, there is always a plan from God as to where you will end up. Talent does play a role sometimes in success, but most important, hard work and giving back to the community is the key to success. How can we stay up to date with you?
