She released her full-length debut album Life as a Dog independently in 2014, through the help of crowdsourcing. In 2016 she was one of the first to sign with Night Street Records and released her EP Crush Me just 10 days later. Her sophomore album Every Where Is Some Where was released in 2017 and even earned her a Grammy nomination for the single “Blood in the Cut.”
