Things slow down and get warm and bright during the middle of the year. In quite the opposite, I've entered the dark, cool, creatively driven world of album recording.
It's thrilling, nerve-racking, full of beauty, doubt, wrestling and fulfillment.
A new album is overdue.
Many of the songs have been sitting with me, in my story and on the road, for over a year.
Expanding them out to the full album picture is (ultimately) awesome, and extremely fulfilling when worked-on and crafted by incredible talent here in Nashville. My job over the next month or so is to sit back and listen as the songs take flight - concerned only with how will you like it when you hear it, will you want to hit repeat over and over (and over) again, and then go and tell your friends about it!
I hope so. These songs are real favorites of mine and carry a story & a promise I pray echoes with truth for you and grounds you in great hope.
