The CONTEMPO Ensemble has been such an incredible experience so far. I feel that I have grown as a musician, songwriter and as a person. It has been amazing to get the chance to play my original songs with a band, and to hear the production of them in their entirety. It has reinvigorated my love for songwriting and performing, and I am so excited to continue my journey here. To play alongside so many talented musicians, and to be a part of something bigger than myself, has been so inspiring. I feel the best part of this ensemble so far has been the friendships I’ve made here. I feel so lucky to be part of such an amazing group.
