Episode 27: Tinsley

Today’s friend of the podcast has accomplished a LOT in a very short period of time. She kicked off her performance career a few years back during a high school talent show, and the stages have only gotten larger since. In the past year alone, she performed in the opening slot for Ryan Caraveo at the Neptune Theatre, Neumos for Capitol Hill Block Party, and Bumbershoot. She’s partnered with season 1 guest Jake Crocker to produce her debut project – who also happened to set her up with her boyfriend, Zak. Together, they released her debut single “In Bloom,” which dropped this past November, her second single Narcissus and much more to come this year.

Say hello to a self-proclaimed “hopeless romantic”, former minor league concession star, terrible cook but wonderful baker, and extremely talented singer-songwriter, Tinsley.
