“Springsteen-like phrasing but opens up with a dark, smoldering refrain leaving a powerful mark on the listener.” Read More…

i am giving away a brand new EP. download it here
so i’ve been on the road for a bit with Orion Walsh and the tour so far has been great.. a little crazy at times but such is life. i wanted to take some time to thank everyone who has come out to the shows and to the new listeners who have attended. there have been many of you who have been asking about the records that are on the way. in all honesty, sometimes it is a very hard question to answer.. i have been saying, “soon,” but i have also mentioned that music will be released in may. there are all kinds of weird details that actually go into releasing a record with a label. it’s all got to do with timing. i can’t get into specifics but i want to address that i want to release a free 3-song EP in the next week or 2 available for download. this is my way of saying, “thank you.” thank you for your patience. thank you for coming out to the shows. thank you for your conversation. thank you for your time. new music is on the way. it would probably be best if i were to say, “when it’s available, i will let you know.” it may not be the answer you want to hear, but that’s why i want to give away a free download of 3 new songs. stay on the lookout for that and i’ll see ya’ll on the road.
I have just wrapped up in the studio and I am glad to announce that my new record, The Sweet Hereafter, is done and should be released very soon via 7 Spin / Sony.
A lot of work was put into this record. I have written a lot of cool songs over the past 3 years but I don’t regret that even the best ones didn’t make the cut. I wanted this record to tell a story instead of just having a ton of songs on it just to fill time. I am sure that a lot of people are expecting “Redcrow,” but I want to save that song for another session.. even one of my favorites, “The Better Part,” didn’t make it. But again, I don’t regret not having those songs on this record. Playing live is my ultimate playground and it’s a place where we can enjoy the songs that aren’t on any records.. not making any promises or commitments when I say this but I want to toss the idea around for a little bit to have my next record recorded live at various shows around the country. The Sweet Hereafter means a lot to me and touches a lot of fine points on my journey for the past 3 years. I wouldn’t call it a “concept album” but you could if you wanted. All the songs tie together in the order they’ve been placed. I am looking forward to sharing The Sweet Hereafter with you and I hope that it means as much to you as it does to me.
Thank you for all your support over the years. I’ll be seeing you on the road,
