SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The lead singer of the Abbey Elmore Band is just 16 years old and she said she's been writing and performing songs since she was 12.

"I can't get enough of music, honestly, as I write it just kind of flows out," said Abbey Elmore. The band which started in Spartanburg, just finished their first album and is releasing their first single 'Love you Freely' on Valentine's Day.

Music that brought Abbey and her band mates together, at a local music store in Lyman, the rest is history. "I was working in that store, when I met them just teaching lessons mostly," said Tyler Tullis, the drummer in the band.

The group's album is all about love and will be released in the Spring. The three member band said their lives would be drastically different if they didn't have music.

The group said they have dreams for their futures like most musicians, to hit the road and tour, play shows across the country,  and as they are working to beat the odds in a challenging industry to break through, they have advice for those who feel like they can't make it big.

"I say who cares play if you want to, play if you like it," said Elmore. "Never stop," said Tullis.

They encourage others to play music because of the impact it's had on them.  "Even if you're a beginner, it's very enjoyable and relaxing," said Elmore.

For a group that doesn't plan on haulting their dreams any time soon, they said they're thankful for the music that brought them together and that continues to be with them on their journey through life.
