At age twelve, Harris was enrolled in a vocal camp and began crafting her own songs and playing guitar. By the time she graduated from high school, Harris earned a music scholarship and a welding scholarship, but took neither and decided to press on with her musical career. She was one of the featured artists in Troubadour, TX, a television show documenting her rising career as a Texas country singer/songwriter.[5]

On July 1, 2010, Harris released her debut album titled All the Right Reasons,[6] followed by an EP in 2013 titled Taking It Back.[7]

In 2013, Harris began working on material for a second full-length album and toured with fellow Troubadour, TX star Zane Williams throughout the state.[8] Then in March, 2019, she released a new self titled EP.[9]


Harris died on September 4, 2019, when her car collided with another near Taos, New Mexico. She was 30 years old.[10][11][12] She is survived by her daughter.[12] Taos County Sheriff’s Office claimed that Harris caused the accident.[13] The other fatality of the crash was a teenager, Maria Elena Cruz, whose vehicle Harris hit head-on.[14]
