SOME ME

I remember the first time I heard a song that really hit me - i think i was only a few years old - and even though i remember not quite knowing the lyrics or what it was actually about, it brought out emotions in me that had been aching to be let out.

thanks to a couple of musical parents who are healthily a little mad, i pursued music - first on piano, then trumpet, then (much to my grandma’s disappointment) the guitar.

next thing i knew i was writing songs, moving to Boston to attend berklee college of music, and now i get to make music daily with some incredible people.

i’ve sung in beijing, performed with charlie puth, written blatantly vegan-leaning songs for canadian beef, and jammed with john mayer. that’s where i’ve been, and where I’m going is a mystery to me - but that only makes me more excited.
