Theres is a story of survival and positivity behind every note of music.  She writes songs to ease the painful stories of her life.  Her songwriting is a window into her life experiences, which has had times of betrayal, heartbreak, eruptions of hidden truths, tragedy, downward spirals of darkness and the magic of hope, love, self-discovery and reconciliation.
