BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

My music is raw, real, honest, haunting, and very melodic. My goal as a musician is to inspire my audience, challenge their thoughts on life, and remind them that a song can heal the most damaging of pain. I am obsessed with writing songs that can make the world a better place. That is my goal.

Biography

The music I write is earthy and raw, honest and down to earth. I have been influenced by so many artists. Some of my favorites are Radiohead, Tori Amos, Ani Difranco...just to name a few. I am addicted to performing live...it's when I feel the most at ease and comfortable...I love how all the nervous energy turns into the most amazing adrenaline rush. I want to always write music, always play live, always challenge myself to be a better composer and just a better person in general. I feel like my sound is very unique but still completely accessible to a wide audience. I believe in the power of dreams, of staying focused and positive in life, and going after what you believe in. I am thankful for every day that I am able to play another song.

Lyrics

I Have To

Written By: Anna Shepherd

I sit back and I watch you
and I am determined
to believe something about you
that i know you don't believe
about yourself, about yourself

like maybe it doesn't have to be so hard
like you make it to be
like maybe there's another way
around this other than
your hands on her face

now write it down calmly
now say it to yourself this morning
you can start believing that
you are more than
what you ever were before

like maybe it doesn't have to be so hard
like you make it to be
like maybe there's another way
around this other than
your hands on her face

i have to believe that for you 6x
