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 [...]

People Are People

Last night I went to my first lesbian night club. (pause for you to catch your breath) Like so many of the diverse and amazing experiences I’ve had in my life, I have music to thank for it. As usual, I am always curious as to how the music I play will adapt to those [...]

Through the wars

Hop down to any pub and share a schooner with your Aussie (Australian) mates (translation: share a chat and a beer with your friends) and, before long, the reminiscing begins. You remember the good times with the bad, recall friends you haven’t seen in ages. Some living the good life and others not so much. [...]

Belmont University releases non-discrimination policy

The circumstances surrounding the sudden departure of soccer coach, Lisa Howe from Belmont University left many students and the Nashville community concerned and confused. What, exactly, is Belmont’s policy regarding sexual orientation? Will students and faculty face discrimination if they are open about their sexuality? It is important to note, that from the beginning, Dr. [...]

An Open Letter to Belmont University

I am disheartened by the circumstances surrounding Lisa Howe’s departure from Belmont University. That any employee, student or church member in our society be required to remain silent about their sexual orientation in exchange for secure employment, academic growth or spiritual support is an intolerable injustice. Unfortunately, this conditional coercion is far too often the [...]

To say nothing…

On the weekend of November 12, I was invited to speak at a symposium at Highlands Church in Denver, CO. Rev. Mark Tidd laid forth a daunting request. Would I be willing to speak open and candidly about my experience as a gay person of faith? He’s not the first person to ask. From the [...]

What’s in the bag?

Ok, my brain is fried, so for now, I thought I’d write about something a bit on the lighter side of things. I’m not much of a gear junky, but I am picky what I use out on the road. As I’m doing the solo acoustic thing a lot these days, I’m traveling very light. [...]

Name Brand Labels

Ok, I’ve been inside my head all week. Mulling and obsessing as usual. Here’s what it looks like: You may have caught the news, that former gothic novelist, Anne Rice has decried Christianity, in the name of Christ...Her words, not mine. With all the eloquent prose befitting her talents as a writer, she’s attempting to shed [...]
