Favorite Meal
WOAH!! If I wasn’t in the music world, I would be a food critic. It’s my other passion. So that’s quite a difficult question…

Cajun BBQ glazed shrimp over smoked gouda grits; fresh spinach salad topped with candied walnuts and pecans, avocado, strawberries, mandarin oranges, blueberries, feta cheese, and a citrus glaze dressing; finishing off with a homemade Bourbon chocolate chip pecan pie. (This is just ONE of the favorites!)

Siblings, Family Size?
My dad, Mark, and mom, Laura, are two of my best friends and amongst my greatest support. My brother, Brandon, is 27 years old and married to the beautiful bride, Scoti. They have the sweetest, precious-est, most fantastic-est baby (oh, am I being a first time aunt or something? Sorry!) named Colt Anderson. My sister, Madison, is 16 years old and has stunning strawberry blonde hair. My Aunt Tracy and Cousin Sierra are also my ultimate sidekicks!

What was your dream job when you were a kid?
I always wanted to be a singer. Dream jobs can actually happen. Never give up seeking what God desires!

Your Musical Influences
Oh, boy! Here we go! Billy Joel, Adele, Amy Winehouse, John Mayer, Otis Redding, Kim Walker-Smith, JesusCulture, Hillsong, Ray Lamontange, Chic Gamine, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Dave Matthews, the list goes on. Anything cultural and original- I’m all about it!  Anything with some real soul- I’m all about it! Anything with some serious groove- I’m all about it!

Do you have any kids?
Not yet!

Favorite subject when you were in school
Grammar, Math, Ceramics

Would you rather have hiccups for the rest of your life or feel like you need to sneeze and not be able to for the rest of your life?
HICCUPS!! At least I would get some abs out of that deal and a strengthened diaphragm for singing! Haha!

Introvert or Extrovert?
Extrovert.

A random/interesting fact about you
Adrenaline junkie. I love riding motorcycles, cliff jumping, traveling the world with cuts and bruises on my feet, experiencing cultures in the way the locals do. I will be that girl to eat the insects if that’s the tradition. Lastly, I love Louisiana and grew up swimming in those alligator waters seen on Swamp People.
