Hi Folks! My new single, "Soniferous" is now available for download in the Online Store as well as your favorite streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. I wrote "Soniferous" during the pandemic, and it actually began as a mandolin etude for Nora to practice - Nora loves playing arpeggios (notes of a chord played individually), and I liked the idea so much that I thought I would bring it over to guitar. It's a nice, soothing tune, a musical journey of the fretboard :-)
Upcoming Vocal Album
In late 2017 I put together a collection of songs I had written (singin' songs with lyrics and everything) and set off to record my first full band vocal album. We got the drums recorded in Richmond, VA with my friends Ammon Young and Sam Bennett, I recorded the bass parts...then went on tour...came back and recorded the guitar parts...went on another tour...covid hit, spiral of depression, existential crisis, dark night of the soul, etc...lots of self development and growth...and now it's done.
I LOVE these songs. They are raw and vulnerable and represent me as an artist more than anything I've ever released, and I think that's part of the reason this project has taken so long to finish. Sometimes it's the things we really really want to do that we push back against and resist.
The album is now going to mixing, mastering and production, release date TBA, 2023, but please keep an eye out for pre-orders - make sure to sign up for the mailing list (to the right!). I can't wait to share these tunes with you all. Love,
