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,
