Last night was incredible Soul Searchers! It felt amazing to hear my music with you and have you respond favorably. Thanks to everyone who came out to support me. Your presence was much appreciated and your energy was amazing! I surprised those in attendance by previewing 2 additional songs off the upcoming mixtape "Flowers, Peaches, and all that Other Ish" I will be posting the songs tomorrow for you to listen to and download. I'm overjoyed at your response and I thank you for accepting me and my artistry. I will post pictures, videos, and more over the next couple days. BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE SINGLES & encourage a friend to do the same! There always has to be a first and last night was the first of many listening parties and new releases. The Journey Continues.....#NoReservations!

What an awesome day for new music. From the moment I woke up, I felt the positive energy in the air. I instantly checked itunes and there I was ready for the world to purchase my new singles and embrace my artistry. What started out as a slow progression has become a steady and purposeful movement of self love, expression, growth, and strength. I'm so grateful for this time in my life. It feels good to be able to look back and see the positive changes that have taken place. I know that the path I have chosen is a challenging one but I am more than ready to face them head on. I've conquered so many of my past fears and it has helped me believe more in myself and what I have to offer not just as an artist, but as a woman, a mother, a sister, a friend....a human being! This new music is an offering up of myself to share with you my heart. I hope that you will receive it in kind!

The tears came instantly when I heard the news of the passing of Maya Angelou. As a young girl, Maya inspired me to find my own voice. Rest in heaven beautiful Queen. I wrote this one for you...
It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you
As your words have helped many break through
A generation of lost souls inspired by your truth
You were an extraordinary force of God's creation
Placed hear to speak life to a struggling nation
Yes it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you
From the CAGED BIRD to the risen you
Your voice a sweet melodic sound
Prolific words moving in rhythmic time
to the beat of your heart
in sync with the needs of a desperate humanity
Yes, it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you
The loss of you leaves a void
A sinking feeling I can't avoid
Yet I know you would not want tears
For the years
of yourself that you gave to us
You would want us to RISE
Standing in the glow of your light
We will remember you
Yes, It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you

This will officially serve as my first blog entry on my new website!!!! It's been a little over 2 years now since I decided to fully commit to pursuing music on a consistent and full time basis. Every time I even feel like getting discouraged, I am reminded of how far I have come since making that commitment. Looking back on my years in music before then, it seems like i was lifetimes away from the artist that I am now developing into. With the release of the new music just around the corner, I am now learning how important it is to just let go of the music once it is complete and out there. You sometimes get caught up in wanting to over think the process. I know that all i can do is give an honest expression of myself and trust that lives will be touched as a result. This journey has been so amazing and I can't wait to see all the beautifully unexpected opportunities that await as I continue to move foward. Stay tuned. The best is yet to come!!!!
