She has been blessed by living in Washington State, Idaho, Oregon, Wyoming and now she calls Florida her home after moving here almost 4 years ago. Ty has a unique personality, sets her own pace and has never hesitated to try new things! Her love for music started at an early age when she would flood the house with jingles and melodies from many a kid’s movie or cartoon. She decided about 3 years ago she wanted to play the guitar. Ty picked her first guitar up, self taught herself and has never looked back. One of her highlights of her music experience was last winter in Nashville where she was asked to come and sing on stage at the world famous, “Tootsies Wild Orchid Lounge”. Earlier this year she was asked to perform at Life Amplified for a fundraiser in our local Carrollwood area and preformed at the Youth Talent Competition in Wesley Chapel. Ty is just starting her sophomore year at River Ridge High School. Her love for music is what keeps her motivated to learn new songs and keep growing in her passion for music. She hopes to one day make it big and if not music will always be a part of her soul.
