The Impact

This campaign would change my life in so many unremarkable ways. Normally I am a very introverted quiet person, but something shifts in me when I play music and share my songs with the world. It is like a part of my spirit, my soul, my heart ignites in a happiness I do not receive anywhere else. Deep down I know, I just know, music is what I am supposed to do. I can express my thoughts, my experiences, my dreams, my emotions through song and it allows me to be free in ways I cannot find in any other place.



Please, please help me reach my goal! It would push me over the edge into a world I could only dream of a few years ago. But it is possible now! I know I will not let you down. I have the drive, I have the talent, and I have the absolute passion for what I am about to do. 

OH! And not to mention I really do have some stellar musicians playing on the album! :) 

  • Kenny Fienstein of Water Tower will be playing Mandolin and Fiddle
  • Coty Hogue will be singing and playing Banjo 


*It is an absolute blessing to have these two incredibly talented musicians interested in what I do and willing to be a part of this journey! 

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't donate you can always share the link of the campaign on Facebook or tell all your friends about it! The more people that know the more likely I can reach my goal! 

Thank you all so very much for your loving kindness and support. :)
