You can start whispering now -- I’m slowly inching toward a new record. For those who’ve made it out to live shows, you’ve had a sneak peak of some of the new songs already. I’ve been playing a select few at live gigs in recent months and will continue ‘road testing’ some more this summer. Make [...]
On The Road…
We made it! Margaret and I have officially started The Hymns of Christmas Tour. So far we've stopped through Denver, Portland and Seattle and are now headed back east for a few days. You may have noticed in our schedule that we are playing at a variety of venues. We'll find ourselves in clubs, [...]
Let The Holidays Begin!
I know, I know! It’s not even Thanksgiving yet & I’m already talking Christmas…this year I started thinking about the holidays in July, so don’t even get me started! There’s nothing quite like invoking images of burning Yule logs and eggnog while melting in the Tennessee summer heat and swatting fat mosquitos. It’s was difficult [...]
Sparks and Ashes
Thought I would post this interview on the creative process that I did a while back. I really enjoyed the thoughtful questions. Often times interviews seem so one-sided and a little pointless, but Paul Pastor really digs deep to try and discover the important ways the creative process is necessary, challenging and beautiful. Rather than [...]

Far away from the public eye, I long contemplated the importance or significance of this fact being available for public knowledge. People accused, asked, wondered and hoped for [...]
The Indie Artist Extraordinaire
One of the most common questions that I get out on the road is how exactly one goes about turning the hobby of music into a full-time career. My answer usually sounds something like this: Do music: Listen. Create. Play. Share it now, worry about selling it later. (Seems like a better answer than: uh, [...]
Writing a “RAW” forward
The cynicism that surfaces in conversations of Christianity are not merely for the secular observer, but a fact that is also often experienced by those who sit in the pews. For my nearly twenty years in being in and around conversations of faith, I can tell you first hand, that it is easy to assume [...]
The Dude & The Marmot
So, on my birthday I head to the Great Outdoors. As is all too common, I had an encounter with a wild animal. Whilst sitting lakeside, sunning myself on some larger rocks, I discovered I was not the only one enjoying the weather. I heard a faint rustle from underneath a large bolder, looked over [...]
