About Merritt

Hey, I’m Merritt. I’m nineteen years old, and I’ve been writing songs since I was fourteen. My songs are like diary entries, capturing feelings and moments in time. Which is ironic because I’ve never been able to keep an actual journal.

I write songs because I have to. It’s how I understand myself. I write about everything: friends, boys, hopes, worries, uncertainties, and love. Especially love.                                       
More about me:

I’m in school at the University of Virginia, where I am not studying music (shocker!).

I went to Miss Porter’s School, an all-girls boarding school in Connecticut. It’s where I got serious about music and made the best friends I’ve ever had.

I was lucky enough to be chosen to live in Jackie Kennedy’s room for my senior year. Sharing a room with such a pop culture and fashion icon was incredible.

I am obsessed with making monthly Spotify playlists. I can relive any period of time by looking up an old playlist.

When I was in middle school, I desperately wanted to be 5’11’’ like Taylor Swift. Mission accomplished.

I believe in women’s empowerment, girls supporting girls, and promoting women’s safety.

I trust my friends when it comes to relationships. So far, they haven’t been wrong. I, on the other hand, have definitely been wrong. Trust your friends.

I’m an introspective extrovert. I’ll be at a party talking to people but start overthinking my feelings and relationships. Which isn’t great for a Friday night out. But it’s perfect for songwriting when I get home.

I have two albums worth of music ready to record. I can’t wait for you to hear it.

I hope that listening to my songs is like talking with a friend. People are more similar than they are different, and music reminds us of that.

xoxo merritt
