About this project
Here For Now is the name I've decided to give to this 5-song project I've been working on over the last few months. I've never been a big fan of naming things - albums, bands, even songs. I feel that names should carry meaning; they should be significant. Coming up with just the right name proves to be difficult for me at times. After more than my fair share of procrastination and debate, I've decided on the name Here For Now. I feel like it's very fitting for this CD.
I grew up in a small town called Charleston, IL and I honestly thought I'd live my entire life there. It's where my whole family lives, and I still have a lot of dear friends in that area. However, God apparently had other plans for my life, and after college, I found myself packing my bags and heading south to Tennessee.
I've now lived in Nashville for over a year where I work as a video editor for a small post production company called Rock Creative Images. I really enjoy my job and couldn't ask for a better group of guys to work with. While I'm not sure if Nashville will be my home for the rest of my life, I figure, I'm "here for now," surrounded by talented musicians and producers, so I'm taking advantage of the resources here and committing to something I've always wanted to do - make a professionally recorded CD.
I hope you all enjoy these 5 songs as much as I have enjoyed writing, performing, and recording them. I hope they make their way into your car stereos and iPods. I hope you find yourselves humming them hours after the music has stopped. Most of all, I hope a lot of great memories are made with these songs playing in the background.
Please take a look at the reward packages I'm offering and see if there's one that strikes your fancy. I've tried my best to keep the prices of each package as affordable as possible. If you're not interested in the rewards, and would just like to donate to the project, that would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you so much for your support!
