Happy Birthday @ericfloresmusic !!! We almost look like ... a band!?!? Here you can see some pretty accurate depictions of our interactions 🤣 Can you guys tell that I miss my #bandfam from @therealbigsmo days??? The family you make in a band on the road is like nothing else in the world... that’s for sure!!!! Eric, hope you’re listening to some seriously nerdy music today.
Still dying over this #blue ... can we talk about how Greece is blessed by God??? #ellada #greece #zakynthos #shipwreckbeach #navagio
What many don’t know. This makes a lot of things in my life so much harder, but it doesn’t stop me from anything. ⬅️swipe for the inside. 💚I was diagnosed with severe #scoliosis when I was 10. By the time I was 13 I was in a hard shell body brace 23 hours a day. I stayed in it for longer than I can remember, and then I slept in it every night late into my teens. I hated every second of it. (Except when @marleegayle tricked people into trying to punch me in the stomach. That was fun) I never had to have the surgery, although I am only a few degrees from requiring it. When I had my brace I only ever knew of one other girl who had scoliosis (she had the surgery) and to this day I still have only met one other girl who had a brace like me. Now because of girls getting involved and supporting each other on social media (and in real life with chapter meetings too!!!) there is a whole network of women connected like I never imagined before. It’s #scoliosisawareness month these chicks challenged us all to post a picture and a message. It took me 15 years and the whole month of June to post this... I’ve said no to a thousand photos of the wrong angle of my back and a thousand tops and dresses too. I’ve been so embarrassed. But I don’t want anyone in my position to ever be embarrassed. Ever. I had to do it to show my thanks and support for those girls out there supporting each other. It would have made a world of difference to me back then (it still does, now) and I want to thank you ladies for standing up and helping each other. Sometimes I get angry and feel like my body has failed me when pain takes over. But then I realize that I can manage anything, I just have to focus. And do #Pilates Photo taken on a video shoot in Italy 📷: @aba_official at one of the most beautiful stages on the planet. Not bad, eh?
Today was just that fabulous. #italy #padova 🇮🇹 📷: @aba_official
Took Baby out for her first spin last night 🎻OMG SO EXCITING 🎻 this one will play YOU like a fiddle 😂 Sounds coming soon 🎶 #electricviolin #devilsinstrument #5string #pinkfloyd #newbaby
Current mood: Channeling Chaz’s bass man power stance for my inner strength. Fiddlin around at a soundcheck in April while they EQ’d everything. We looped this and I got to fool around. My phone is full of a thousand nonsensical videos 😂 there’s some perfect timing in the third one 💡 🎻 #electricviolin
#tbt weapons for the @tequilarockrev show in Austin on Cinco De Mayo... I never go anywhere without my @fishmanmusic pro platinum DI and I never play my @woodviolins Viper without #mojomojo #overdrive @tcelectronic ... I also use #halloffame #darkmatter #sparkbooster  for this show.  And ya know crazy pants never hurt.
Happy Mother’s Day 💐 if you have ever enjoyed a note of my music, thank this lady. She burned up the road for 15 years driving me to every lesson, camp, rehearsal, performance and dive bar known to man. The original band mom with a hot rod Lincoln. Happy Mother’s Day!
If you’ve ever enjoyed a note of my music, thank my Mom!!! Reposting this video from a feature I had in @stringsmagazine a while back in honor of my mom :) Sappy throwback photos coming soon! “Sending this one out to my Mom on Mother's Day 🎻❤ the second part of my @stringsmagazine feature. Thank you again for featuring me :) also, I love you @joshuabellmusic 📸: @emphasisfilms “
‪*link in bio* Not many of my new friends know this, but I attended the Penn State Schreyer Honors College and studied Industrial Engineering as a major and Entrepreneurship as a minor. Last November, I had the unique chance to go back to Penn State and work with students in the Entrepreneurship program which was an honor and a total blast too. The students were incredible (as was the whole experience for me) and I hope I get to continue doing things like this. 
Thank you to Penn State and Professor Beaury for inviting me 🙂 all of you guys in the class, please tag yourselves! 
Someday I’ll get around to telling my story about how I ended up in engineering school and then ended up a fiddle player again 🙂
TONIGHT ☠️ AUSTIN ☠️ ONE-2-ONE @tequilarockrev 🎸🎻🎺 COME ON OUT AND PARTY 🇲🇽
#oldheadshot guess how old I was?! Ok. I was 15!
