Behind the Song:
First Time


I've got one more Behind the Song for you from Retro Kind of Love!

This next song is: 'First Time'

Today we’re diving into the creation of my personal FAVORITE song on the EP and I just want to share a little bit more about why this one is my favorite...

“First Time” has a special place in my heart.

I wrote this song after coming out of one of the darkest times in my life. I was dealing with a lot of depression and anxiety for what felt like months on end.

One day, I woke up and it felt like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders! I finally felt free of all the negativity that had previously been consuming me.

It was at this moment that I sat down and wrote “First Time.” Many people ask me about what comes first in my songwriting process—the lyrics or the music? In this instance, the music came first!

I sat down with my guitar and fell in love with this beautiful, floaty chord progression that began flowing from my fingers. Once I had the chords written, the
lyrics came to me immediately.

I hope this song can be a reminder that there is light at the end of every tunnel!


I really hope that you've enjoyed learning more about these songs! I wanted to do something special for my biggest fans... to connect with you and tell you more about this music (and my story) than a Spotify link ever could...

Thank you so much for being here and for supporting my music!

Oh! And keep an eye on your inbox because I'll be sending you a very special thank you tomorrow 😉❤️...
