Hello KS backers,

Well, it was around this time last year that you all helped me achieve my goal of being able to create an album of empowering new material. It’s been a while since my last update but I’ve found out firsthand why albums sometimes take long to produce. It’s really been a discovery like no other. At present we have finished all recording and now are deeply in the mixing phase of the project. I heard one of my songs “Sins of the Son” for the 1st time last week and was amazed that what was coming through the speaker was actually me...no, really. It was an out of body moment, and I was simply moved. Hearing my naked voice along with my arrangement struck me deeply. The simplicity of this particular song brings all of that in focus. The narrator of the song is forced to see themselves in a deeper way with all the beautiful parts and all the hard parts and wonder, “Is this really happening?” For the first time I’m discovering and realizing what it means to really meet yourself deeply for the first time. And I’m discovering this through the sounds on this record. All this to say, I can’t wait for you all to hear this. I’m super excited. You are in for a treat! The new projected date is Nov 15th. I’m hopeful we will hit that date. Thanks for your patience.

Much love, Vernon
