Can you tell us about your journey as an indie musician? What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
I’ve always loved music. It seemed that there was really no other path for me, because it’s not what I do as much as who I am.
How would you describe your unique style and sound as an artist? What sets you apart from other musicians?
I feel like my voice is the center of my musical style. Whether I’m singing country, bluegrass, blues or gospel, my voice is the common thread in all of it.
Could you share some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced as an indie musician and how you overcame them?
Being an independent artist always has its challenges. You always wonder if you’re reaching as many people as possible. But thanks to all the social media platforms and streaming platforms, it makes it so much easier to potentially reach as many people as you would on a major label.
What is your creative process like? How do you approach songwriting and composing music?
I always like to start with a title or some sort of lyric idea. I like to know where I’m going before I start heading down the road. My songs are much more focused that way. It’s always been a process that I love dearly. Seeing a song come out of nothing….there’s nothing like it.
Are there any particular themes or messages that you aim to convey through your music? What inspires your lyrics?
It really depends on what I’m going through in my life at the time. Writing has always been my therapy. So, if I’m in a great place in my life, my songs will reflect that and be more upbeat and positive. If things are tough, you’ll hear it in my songs. It ebbs and flows.
Tell us about your latest music project.
This new album has been a true labor of love. My husband has done most of the production and Lee Brice has co/produced some of the tunes and everything sounds fantastic! I’m so proud of this collection of songs. It’s where I’m at in my life right now. It couldn’t be more perfect.
What are your long-term goals as an indie musician? Where do you see yourself and your music in the next few years?–
My end goal is always to end up on a stage somewhere with my guitar. Sharing my music in a live setting will always be my favorite thing.
