Music is and forever will be my passion. My life is filled with music. I have had highs and lows and all of my stories end up as songs. I recently won the MusicCares and Grammy Foundation’s Teens Make Music Songwriting Contest with one of my songs “What I’ll Never Get.” This song is about my family’s struggle with my father’s drug and alcohol abuse. My message to myself and the world is that the hardship you go through in life will only make you stronger in the end. You can hear my story in my songs.
I am from Melrose, Massachusetts— a suburb of Boston—and I have been writing and performing music as long as I can remember. I love to reach people through music, and I love the thrill of doing a great show. I also love the challenge and permanence of writing a great song. My life and a song took me to the Grammys last month. I hope you will join me to see where I go next!
