My Story

If you’ve found your way to this page, you’re probably aware I write and sing. My passion for serving Christ through music leads to me to find great joy in providing vocals for celebrations of life, retreats and weddings. I love ministering to hearts in their deepest times of need and if this is you, I invite you to contact me so we can talk more.

I am both classically and commercially trained having spent years working with some of the best vocal and acting coaches in the United States. Prior to completing my Master of Arts, I was a recording artist on Universal Republic Records, New York, and before that I spent a significant amount of growing up years “on the road”, which afforded me the opportunity to meet and experience some unique people and events.

Before signing with Universal Republic, I completed high school at 15 and am so grateful my parents allowed me to begin college at that time. From the time I was a young child, I performed extensively throughout my home state of Texas–and on the weekends my mom would drive me to surrounding states. I made fond memories, memorized many a small town and gained invaluable insight about people. As a teenage artist I had two top-charting singles on the Texas Music Chart followed by my first nationally released single landing at #1 on the Billboard Singles Sales Chart .

I went from traveling from city to city, hotel to hotel to now momming, ministering and musing over a blog, and while people are more than curious about the “why”, it’s simple and complicated all at the same time. The long and short of it, however, is this: the music/entertainment industry for the most part, does not mesh with my beliefs and values as a Christian. I didn’t always feel that way, mind you–but God led me to a place where I knew life was too short and things we love, GOOD things, can become idols if we aren’t careful. I want my life to make a lasting contribution–it’s the personal connections with people and being there in moments that shape lives that makes the greatest difference.

There is much more I could say, but perhaps a dinner conversation would be better than a blog!! Since we may never meet in person, I hope you are humored by things you read here and I sincerely hope you feel welcome!

    i am interested in a wedding ceremony singer who can sing something “sincere” and then something “fun” to give the ceremony a relaxed good time vibe. Thanks Mary Shaul

    I love your CD that I was given at a store in Round Rock, TX that is now defunct. I can’t remember the name, but I have played that CD for YEARS.. since the first time you put it out, I believe. I live in Austin and was wondering if you could provide the password for your samples… wondering if you’ve done more since then!? Are you ever in Austin? Doing shows? Just wondering! Thanks, Trish Taylor

      Hi Trish! I’m so glad you found my blog and that you enjoyed my music. I had a few albums…do you know what was on the cover? If you find anything on iTunes or eBay, don’t buy it. I’ve never received a royalty payment…Universal has pocketed the profits. I’m going to add a shopping cart to the website soon and sell them directly. Or, I can do PayPal and put one in the mail for you. I SO appreciate your sweet words…the affirmation is really encouraging and I’m so glad you wrote. Thank you!!!
