Picking said it is through social media outlets that independent musicians like herself get noticed.
Picking attended Mary A. White Elementary School in Grand Haven until sixth grade, when her parents moved to Hastings. She had been living in Long Beach, Calif., for the past 15 years.
The urge to become a musician brought her back to Michigan. She now resides in Grand Rapids.
Picking’s second album — “The Wonder in the Wander” — will be released on Sunday, Aug. 23, at a Grand Rapids concert. The title track was written while Picking was on a safari in Tanzania.
She performed this past Tuesday at Grand Haven’s “Tuesdays in the Park” series.
