1. What does it mean to be selected as a finalist for this competition?
For me, it's an honor and a vote of confidence from the Folk and Americana music communities at an early stage in my career. The Wildflower! Festival and particularly this competition have a strong legacy and reputation for bringing talented, unique, wholehearted musicians to this contest. It's pretty exciting for me to be in such good company! It's also a message to me that, despite my fears and moments of not knowing what's ahead for me, that I'm on the right path.
