The first time I fell in love with music was when I was 6 years old. It was Christmas morning and I got the VTech KidiJamz Studio--the coolest toy keyboard around. I played with it for hours. While my mom’s ears were suffering, I was falling in love. My passion for music only grew from there. I started to sing and play the cello, guitar, piano, and ukulele. Then, I discovered GarageBand. At that moment, I knew there was a whole world of music production that laid before me and I couldn’t wait to explore. By my junior year in high school, I became 1 of 5 girls in the Fort Hayes Audio Production Career Center and a founding member of the Beats by Girlz Columbus Chapter. When I got into this, I knew that women were outnumbered in the music production field. I didn't let that deter me. I want to be a part of the group of incredible women that are paving the way for girls like me to become music producers. I want to make my own music and help other women make theirs. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with the world of production. I can’t imagine my life without music.
My song, The World Stops, was inspired by my first love. Everyone knows how intense it feels to love someone for the first time. Every emotion is heightened and everything feels big. That’s what I tried to encapsulate in this song. I used epic drums and ethereal vocals to create a profound, otherworldly atmosphere. I wanted this song to feel as big as love and what’s bigger than the world stopping.
