"WHEREVER YOU ARE" FILM CLIP RELEASED TODAY - 23rd November
So excited!! The film clip for my 2nd single "Wherever You Are" came out today. This is a song that I co-wrote in Nashville with Byron Hill (Who has written songs for people like Ray Charles and Kenny Rogers) Although being over in Nashville was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, it was also an extremely busy time for me and I was longing for the peacefulness of my beautiful home back in Byron Bay.
