This album has been quite a few tumultuous years in the making. I’m excited to say that, with your help, I’m finally in a position to finish it. I started recording this collection of songs in the midst of some very rough personal times. I was grieving the loss of a mother, battling a drug habit, and trying to manage a music career, full time day job, and fatherhood all at once. Through these trying days, music has been my guiding light, and the encouragement from you has been my driving force. Some artists thank their "fans"... well, I don't believe I have “fans”. Instead, I have friends who profoundly believe in my talent, who’ve seen and heard something in me that the “major labels” have overlooked, and who’ve inspired me and refused to let me quit. To everyone who comes to our shows, buys our records, follows me on Facebook... I consider you friends who understand the value of art and who appreciate the hard work and sacrifice that goes into being an independent artist. My band, Reno Divorce, has been sustained wholly on the love and support of its friends for years. Being able to finish “Hymns for the Hardened Heart” now, with two years of genuine sobriety under my belt, is a blessing that is not lost on me. Thank you for helping me get this album across the finish line!

Risks and challenges

We are on schedule to have the project completed in May. Studio time is booked, artwork has been commissioned, we are ready to roll on the final steps. The only possible delay would be if the manufacturing or shipping took longer than projected. If for any reason there is an unforeseen delay we will notify you immediately and add additional rewards to your order for the inconvenience.
