(Enjoy! - Any issues, let me know!)

When I moved to the U.S. from Brazil where I grew up (more on that later, along with the “gypsy” thing), never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine one day I'd be a solo artist performing my own music, much less releasing my own ALBUMS. At the time, I hadn’t even written a song!

I’d given up a life I was pretty happy with—the only life I knew, in Brazil—with a mild taste of music success, to follow someone ELSE’s Nashville dream (yes, a boy 😒). Funny how blindsighted we can be sometimes when we lack vision of our own, eh?

As fate would have it, sooner than later I found myself in nowhere-land (musically), two school-aged kids, no job, no boy or band, somewhere in small town U.S.A.

Feeling like that picture there, I decided it was proooobably a good time to suck it up and forget about the whole music thing. After all, nobody starts a music career in their 30’s, right? I got a degree then a “real” job…

Buuuut of course that wee little flame in my heart wouldn’t go out. 🔥

After dabbling in music for a good part of five years—playing open mics, backyard bonfire parties, basement parties, garage jams, performing at community events, singing National Anthems, taking a performance hiatus, making lots of friends at karaoke, joining a cover band, quitting a party band... all the while trying to decide what "SENSIBLE" thing I wanted to do when I grow up, it dawned on me: STOP trying to be "sensible".

"Sensible" as defined by society at large is overrated.

The only thing that TRULY makes sense is to fearlessly give the talents you've been given a chance to achieve their fullest potential. And I wasn't doing that. I was waiting for... …

Really! What the heck was I waiting for?! Truth is, I was scared of "flying solo".

Welp, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone", right?

So...in 2013 I put myself out on a limb and cut it off. I launched a crowdfunding campaign TOTALLY ready to crash and burn. (At least I’d go down trying..)

But guess what?!! I DIDN’T! 96 PEOPLE (like you!) caught me mid air and convinced me through their incredible generosity and support that the songs I'd created were worth being HEARD. And not just heard, but professionally recorded with the best musicians in Nashville!

☝️”The Stranger In Me” - my first gift to you - being one of them.

And that's how my first EP came about. You can find it below.

P.S.The Stranger In Me” is my inner gypsy, wild and free. Every day I’m learning to feel more comfortable in her skin 😜 …who is “the stranger” in you? I’d love to hear. Just hit reply on the email I sent you (even if I can’t get back to you, I promise I will read it!).

THE STRANGER IN ME LYRICS (so you can follow along…)

A preacher’s daughter from a southern town 
I never did much hellin’ around 
I acted the lady I was taught to be 
But I knew about the stranger in me 

The stranger in me will dance all night 
Do anything to feel alright 
She likes bein’ wild and free 
You’re gonna love the stranger in me 

You’ve been lonely and traveled the world 
Looking for a different kind of girl 
I’m a gentle river or a stormy sea 
You’re gonna love the stranger in me 

The stranger in me will dance all night 
Do anything to feel alright 
She likes bein’ wild and free 
You’re gonna love the stranger in me 

There aint’ no danger with a proper stranger 
There aint’ no danger with a proper stranger 

One night with me is all it takes 
I can fix any old heartaches 
I got a few chips up my sleeve 
You’re gonna love the stranger in me 

The stranger in me will dance all night 
Do anything to feel alright 
She likes bein’ wild and free 
You’re gonna love 
The stranger in me will dance all night 
Do anything to feel alright 
She likes bein’ wild and free 
You’re gonna love the stranger in me, yeah!
