Hosking is a California-based country-folk singer who tells stories through her music.

She has a bachelor's degree in religious studies with a minor in cultural anthropology from the University of California, Davis.

Her music is an amalgamation of her university studies, teaching experience, motherhood and the humanity that has moved her since her childhood.

Hosking won the 2008 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, was a finalist in the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest and was recognized with honors in the International Songwriting Contest and West Coast Songwriters Association.
