On June 21st, 2010 I released, O' World, What a Beautiful Tragedy.  Since that time, I have toured the album to festivals, music venues, colleges and bars around the country.  I have been elated with how the music turned out on the last album, and how it has been received.  I have loved performing this music for you all, and I will continue to play many of the songs in future shows.

However....

It's time for something new :)  I would like to make a new album with 10 new originals, and I want to release it by this summer.  I would like to tour this album around the world again, reaching new fans in new countries.  I have had these dreams in the back of my head for the last two years, all the while lining up the Dominoes necessary to make them come to fruition.  The time has come, and I would love for you to be a part of it!

I'm flying out to Seattle, WA in March to record the new album, "Diggin' In".  I think about calling the album, "Diggin' In to Grace", because that's really what it is.  For the last two years I have been exploring the many ideas and facets of love.  I want to share my findings through this album.

Risks and challenges

This is where you come in. I need your help raising the funds to put this all together! To hire a producer, musicians, and engineer costs a lot of money. Add the studio time and travel expenses, and the task becomes daunting at best as an independent musician. By myself, this is impossible.

Collectively though I know we can raise this money! I will be releasing a whole mess of music over the course of this month through 15 videos. If you like what you hear, would you tell your friends? I would love to share this with as many as want to be involved in making music that inspires.
