My passion for music began at a very young age.
I have always loved singing and performing and was always on a stage somewhere.
Growing up in the West of Ireland I was influenced by so many
different sounds and styles but my parents collection of music definitely had a huge impact on me and pointed me in the right direction.
They varied from Kris Kristofferson, Eric Clapton and the Eagles to Garth, Patsy Cline
and the Dixie Chicks. That was the music that got me hooked when I was younger.
As I got older I discovered amazing storytellers in Lee Ann Womack, Alison Krauss
and most recently Kacey Musgraves!
I could write an endless list of artists whom I admire but I just love music
no matter what genre and everything I listen to influences me in some way or another.
I decided to leave Galway and come to Nashville after a number of
opportunities didn't work out for me. It kind of put into perspective
where I really needed to be if I wanted to give this a real shot.
Being surrounded by so many like minded and creative people is inspiring.
It has completely brought me to life and made me believe no dream is too crazy!
It really is the best decision I could have made!
I've made an amazing EP that I could not be happier with and I hope you enjoy listening to it!
I've been so blessed and lucky with the opportunities and support that I've got from friends, family and the ACS family.
Life is short. Don't be afraid to take a chance and do what makes YOU happy 💕

My EP release
The time has finally come and I am so beyond proud of this project.
The collection of songs on this EP represent different sides of me. From boys who have done me wrong to random hook ups to getting revenge and reminiscing about home. There's fun and fiestyness (Is that a word? If not I just made it up ✌) but there's heartbreak hope and inspiration too. It fully represents me as a 24 year old growing up and trying to figure things out!
The musicians, the writers, my producers THANK YOU for the inspiration and for being so mindblowingly talented!! 👏👏
This would be absolutely nothing without you all. And thank you for taking a chance and working with me.
NOW go listen and let me know what you think 💕
My family friends and every single fan YOUR the best.
