She was named by The CBC and Radio Canada as “25 under 25 musicians everyone needs to know,” Her skill as a musician is one of the first things that her audience notices about her as she owns opening spots for artists like Carrie Underwood, Jonny Lang, The Brothers Osborne, Scotty McCreery as well as Josh Turner, who she toured extensively with over the past few years.
