What can I say? I'm just a somewhat normal and somewhat quirky girl from the hills of West Virginia. Currently, I'm a substitute teacher with a history degree and a passion for music. Since I'm a bit reserved and prefer to be in the background and my lack of musical talent, I knew that I could never be a recording artist. So for years, I have wanted to write for a music magazine, but for now this blog will do.
I love music with integrity and artistry whether it is indie, alternative or alt-country/ bluegrass. But, throughout the years I have noticed that I am drawn more toward an acoustic sound and that my heart belongs to the folk and bluegrass genres. I accredit this passion to my father's family and to my deep roots in Appalachia.
As a young girl and woman, I can remember visiting my father's family who lived in the Allegheny Mountains of Virginia and listening to my grandfather, dad, and all of my uncles playing old gospel and country tunes on their guitars or banjo. And, as I've grown older, those images and sounds have stuck with me and has morphed into a love music. This transformation has also provided me with an appreciation of my roots as an Appalachian woman, whose heart will always belong with the music, history, culture, and the mountains.
