My narrative is long! If you'd rather just sit back, relax, and watch a video: go ahead! If you want to learn more, read on...

Picture a little girl, about 6 years old, with long brown hair down to her waist. You are walking home from work, and this girl is standing on the stone wall on the side of the street singing and dancing. She is confident, happy, and willing to put herself on display for anyone willing to listen for just a moment. Since you are just a passerby, you don't know how much time this little girl has spent setting up performances in the hallway of her parents' house, handing them formal invitations to sit and watch her for hours on end.

Not to ruin the ending for you, but this little girl was obviously me. I grew up to be a dedicated high school student, participating in every play and musical I possibly could. I wrote songs on my piano and guitar, occasionally performing them at school events. I loved school, and I went on to college to major in English and minor in Music and Education. When I graduated from Bates College in 2011, I was lucky to get a job the following July as a special education teacher.

I've spent the past few years dedicated to my job and my educational growth, but recently my passion for songwriting began to come alive again. I'm finally ready to share my words and music with anyone who wants to listen, and I'm excited to hear how my songs will sound enhanced in a recording studio and with other musicians and instruments! So if you like what you hear, please donate and share with your friends!

When you record, you get to record a moment in time. I recently wrote a song for my Nana's 90th birthday. Last October, she had a stroke and lost some of her speech capability as well as movement on her right side. She has been working hard all year to regain her strength and finally moved back home with my parents on Mother's Day. The song I recorded for her birthday is one of my favorites, and I would love to bring her to the recording studio this summer and have her say something special on that track. Please help me record this amazing moment in time, as well as bring to life some songs that have been burning inside me for a long time now!

Any contribution (large or small) made is a huge help! Thank you for your support!!
