About this project
"Let Love Grow" is a collection of songs from the latest season in my life as a believer, husband, and father. I have been blessed to be able to create two albums over the past couple of years. As I'm typing this out my heart is filled with such gratitude for those that have been a part of everything I've been allowed to do.
Each album reflects my journey and my experiences through the beautiful artistic lens of music. This newest venture is definitely not new territory for me when it comes to transparency and writing about life experience, however, it is the most authentic, transparent writing I have ever done in my years of songwriting. I find it extremely fulfilling when people approach me and tell me about how a song I've written has touched their lives. This record will most definitely connect with so many different people in so many different walks of life. It is my deep desire to have the songs connect with you, comfort you, and continue to move you in so many ways.
Transition and change is often a difficult place to be. With this new project I found myself reaching down to the areas of my faith, my life, and my overall outlook and forcing myself to be as honest as I could possibly be. The lack of authenticity and transparency in so many areas of life, including the church, has been gnawing at me for quite some time. I finally took a deep and decided I've grown tired of wearing the mask and I wanted to put out a project that strips away at the mask that so many of us wear, myself included.
After this project is funded we will head into Castle Sounds Production in Wylie, TX and record. The recording will be all analogue, which is also a new way of recording for me. I will use some of my best friends who produced and recorded my last record, "The Risen." The beauty of analogue is the transparency, the human feel, that we feel is so lacking in much of record making lately.
Will you join me and partner with me on this exciting adventure? I believe this is a project that will be an amazing experience that I desire for all of you to share in. It more than likely won't get done without your help!! I have some of the most amazing family and friends who've supported me through the years, my hope is that trend continues with this project.
Your support will not be something I take lightly and because of that I will hold in HIGH regard any questions, comments, or concerns you may have about it. So please feel free to message me with any concerns at all and I'll be happy to help/
Risks and challenges
I know from experience with the my last two records that mishaps can happen, whether it is with getting out the physicall copies in time, getting the mastering sessions back, etc.
However, I also know that with the recording and production company I am using, they are the most professional and hard-working group of guys I've had the opportunity to work with and I honestly don't foresee anything that would set us behind. If anything were to occur that would slow down the process YOU would be the first to know about and know how I am going to remedy whatever may transpire.
I do not take your support lightly at all, and I believe you are as much a part of this project as I am so we are in this together. Please know I will do everything in my power to uphold the integrity of this product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
