Momentary Beauty tells a long love story; starting with feelings of butterflies, daydreaming, and the power that love brings to a person who feels lost. Next, the music highlights the ups and downs of relationships, but all with the trust that love will prevail. In a hauntingly beautiful ending, one partner remains as their lover passes. Momentary Beauty attempts to describe the indescribable feeling of human love: so remarkable to us, yet even our strongest passions happen for only a moment.
My debut EP, "When I Grow Up", is a collection of original music centered around childhood, relationships, self-discovery, and new beginnings. "When I Grow Up" embraces the fact that, as artists and people, we are constantly evolving and growing, no matter how old or experienced.
