In addition to writing and working, Patritto also manages a band called The Modern Royals in Nashville.

"Everything has been really exciting for me," Patritto said.

The concert on Saturday is at 7 p.m ., and features all original songso. She said she decided to do the concert "on a whim," and wanted to play her newest songs.

"I'm really excited to play all my new stuff," Patritto said. "I've been writing a lot and will be playing my originals instead of covers."

The songs will be performed on guitar and piano, and Patritto called her style "singer/songwriter country/pop/alternative."
