Hey you guys,

I wanted you all to be the first to hear the news... we have partnered with a spectacular record label for this album!

New York City based Megaforce Records will be releasing OUR record, "I Am The Rain" in September of 2016 and I could not be more satisfied and thrilled. Sony/RED will be handling distribution and they're the best in the business. We've assembled a fantastic team who believes in this music and this moment.

If I could call all 2,265 of you on the phone now to tell you this great news, I would! But it's late and my phone battery is low. ; ) Seriously though, I want to thank you all again for your support and for your incredible patience. Hopefully, I'll see a lot of you on the road and I can thank you in person.

Joe Henry produced this album and I am still in awe of having worked with him and the brilliant crew of musicians and engineers that he assembled for this record.

Thank you all again. I hope you'll be as proud of this album as I am.

Very sincerely,
