From the age of 12 I started to struggle with depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts. This continued throughout my teenage years where I also developed social anxiety. During these years, songwriting was one of my main coping mechanisms and my faith in God kept me alive. At the age of 20, I was diagnosed with Type II Bipolar Disorder. At the age of 23, after reaching my lowest point, I received the sudden revelation of the significance and power of Jesus’ blood and received healing from my mental illness. I have been growing in my confidence since that moment, and now find a joy and calling in sharing my testimony and sharing my music, and hope I can encourage others to seek Jesus and find freedom and life!
I believe music is a form of communication; it can tell a story, proclaim a message, or manifest a feeling or emotion. I personally find it such a beautiful responsibility to be able to communicate through these means, to choose if I will communicate a message of hope and light, or death and darkness. I believe music is powerful in influencing those who choose to be receptive to what it is communicating. It can speak directly from heart to heart, whether instrumentally, lyrically, or in the perfectly timed moments we call silence.
