I grew up in Utah and I’ve always loved playing the piano. Along with learning to play, my teacher also taught me how to write out my own compositions with pencil and paper. Writing my own music quickly became my passion and I loved to improvise on the piano more than I liked to practice. My mother was always able to tell what kind of day I had at school by the way I would play the keys when I got home.
It wasn’t until after college that I found another love in composing arrangements of my favorite hymns and songs. I had never been good at sight reading music so when my sister-in-law asked me to play a hymn at church for a musical number I decided to improvise my own version of it. I later decided to share these arrangements online and I have found so much joy in sharing my music with others and hearing how they’ve been able to use it themselves. This journey led me to eventually release my first single Hallelujah and later my first album A Simple Christmas.
Music has always brought me a sense of peace and joy. Whenever I have challenging days or life is really tough and hard, I turn to music. And when life is happy and joyful and I can’t imagine it getting any better, I turn to music. I hope that my music can bring you peace on your challenging days and help you feel even more joy on your happy days.
I currently reside in the beautiful state of Montana with my husband and four children.
