The starting point of my career

  • VocalizeU was the starting point of my career in the music industry. Simply put, to spend 8 days surrounded by industry professionals coaching and educating you, while simultaneously meeting peers from all over the world is a very rare thing and for it to be so positive and encouraging was pivotal for me.
    I met friends at VU 9 years ago who I still work with to this day and who I consider my best friends and confidants. What VU can offer a young aspiring artist is the genesis of a lifelong career in any facet of the industry. Instead of focusing on a singular artistic pathway, VU offers a variety of career visions which I found compelling and different from other artist intensives out there. It took me a long time to figure out what my role was in music, I didn’t know if I wanted to be an artist yet, or ever, and VU helped connect me with mentors who provided me with the tools to work in tour management, event production, and playing in multiple touring bands across the country.
