Violet Pen is a lyricist who collaborates with other songwriters to bring her stories to life through music. In her songs, Violet Pen draws from her colorful and complicated life, filled with multiple careers and loves, moves from Atlanta to San Francisco to Alaska, single motherhood, family trauma and growing up in a small southern town on 11 acres of cow pasture. Her lyrics express deep vulnerability and convey the complexity of life in simple, honest ways. The musical style of her songs span pop, folk and country. Influenced by great storytellers such as Taylor Swift and Joni Mitchell, she has often found herself in their songs – and she hopes others might find themselves in hers.
