"I love the first two lines...really great image! The 3rd and 4th line aren't really coming together for me. The "but" doesn't really make sense. I think that you could continue the idea of the song coming to you and that you are…"

More about me:
Zandi Holup was born in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania on April 11th 1996. In the 7th grade, she was discovered at a children’s acting class. She auditioned and got her first commercial for Benihana. Since then, Zandi has worked steadily doing numerous commercials, voiceovers, TV and movies. She also works as a model doing print ads and runway shows in New York, most recently for Fiorucci during New York Fashion Week. With so many auditions and parts coming in she chose to enroll in the Professional Children’s School in Manhattan, where she is President of the Student Council and will graduate with honors in 2014.
At 13, Zandi started playing guitar, piano, and singing. During vocal lessons one day, her vocal teacher asked her on a whim, “Do you write songs”? That is when the muse revealed itself to her and she started putting lyric and melody together. Soon after this Zandi heard a song by Miranda Lambert called “More Like Her” she knew she loved music, but there was something about Country music that spoke to her heart. She started listening to a lot of country records and dissecting them. She would find ways to incorporate these country sounds and story ideas into her songwriting without losing her rock edge.  
Being a natural poet Zandi had no problems learning to express herself in words and after the first few songs she wrote, she knew she had the music in her also. She has developed her own unique style. She has written over a 100 songs since then. Zandi writes from life experience almost as therapy. Her goal as a singer/songwriter has never been to blend in, but to use her life experiences to write songs to help others to understand themselves better.
Her first film role “A Birders Guide to Everything” directed by Rob Meyer and starring Ben Kingsley premiered this spring at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Even with of all these amazing things happening she has never lost her passion for songwriting and she remains focused and excited about her future in music.
