Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is enjoying a safe and joyous season with their families and friends. And remember, there is no better gift than the gift of love. Just kidding…Chanel is better. Or Dior. Or Givenchy. But you get the point!
2014 was a great year and I look forward to building on this palpable momentum! From winning Rock Artist of the Year at the IMEA Awards, to Pop Song of the Year in LA, to amassing more than 200,000 views of my music videos on my VEVO page, these past 365 days have certainly been memorable. In the past month alone, I have been honored with two songs (”Disaster” and “Story of a Broken Heart”) finishing as the World’s Best Finalists in the Adult Contemporary category of the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest (with a whopping 10 songs as semi-finalists in four categories). Also in December, I had 3 songs (”Story of a Broken Heart”, “Breaking Up” and “Prince”) finish as semi-finalists in the DSA Song Contest. Commendations such as these are always so encouraging and give me continued confidence as an artist and songwriter who prides herself on pushing boundaries of genres, sound and lyrics.
2015 will certainly be filled with exciting milestones in my career and I can’t wait to experience the ride with all of you! Radiowaves and music video channels alike will soon be overrun by my voice, with new singles dropping worldwide in the coming months. Look out for a HUGE guest artist feature on one of the songs as well!
As always, thanks for the support and let’s take over the world together!
Recently, I traveled to San Diego to shoot a music video for upcoming single “Hard” produced by Trend Def. It was an exciting (and extremely tiring) day of big hair, crazy makeup, and awesome sets with an outstanding cast and crew of over thirty hard working people!
I will be announcing the video’s debut date shortly, but get pumped to see it on VEVO, MTV and across the globe. The single will also be played on radio stations worldwide. It’s definitely a fun, infectious song and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do!
On November 12th at the famed Avalon Theater in Hollywood, I was honored with the award for Pop Single of the Year for “High Like” at the 24th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards! As a multi-year recipient of these coveted awards, I am once again thrilled to win out of over 10,000 songs considered in this year’s competition! Thank you to the fans and judges who voted for “High Like”, a high-energy pop/rock record written by myself and Grammy-Award winning producer Michael J Powell!
If you haven’t yet heard “High Like”, check it out on the music player in the side bar or on the music page! And listen for it in some upcoming television shows and movies as well …
This month, I am featured in an article on Musician’s Friend about connecting with fans via social media!
You know I love talking to all of you so let’s INTERACT:
Pick your favorite, or all three, and link up with me.
This looks to be a very busy month! I’m excited to share new music, projects and exciting happenings with all of you VERY SOON!
This past weekend, I was bestowed with the title of Rock Artist of the Year at the 2014 International Music and Entertainment Association Awards, which honors the best in independent music and entertainment across the globe. I thank all of the industry professionals who voted for me, as well as all of my fans who took the time to participate in the fan vote! PARTY LIKE A ROCKSTAR!
In addition to snagging the award, I also performed “Trouble” with my band during the ceremony. Fitting, as we were able to show the whole audience (and those watching the live-stream at home), just how hard we can REALLY rock out. That song is a BANGER live! I am confident I lived up to the title of Rock Artist of the Year.
