Strumming her way to Nashville

— “People heard about me and I got opportunities to play at bigger venues so it pretty much has taken off from there,” said Cavanaugh.

She promotes her music online through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and has two songs on iTunes, “Love Mess” and “Best of Me.” She recently recorded two more songs but pegs her repertoire at about 200.

“I’ve written a lot,” said Cavanaugh. “I base my songs on pretty much things that I go through with my life, usually personal experiences.”

She said her musical inspiration and influence is Taylor Swift, another Nashville transplant who, before selling out arenas, also begged her parents to travel there from her Northeast hometown as a young teen.

“[She’s] an amazing songwriter and I’m a big fan of lyrics and really good female performers,” said Cavanaugh.

Cavanaugh has no doubt that music is meant to be her life.

“I realized when I was younger that I just always loved music. I started writing songs and playing guitar,” said Cavanaugh. “It’s what made me the happiest.”

She said she plans to move to Nashville when she’s older and hopefully make a career for herself.

“I just hope to go as far with my music as possible,” said Cavanaugh.
