AMPERSAND EP (free download)

I've finally decided to release my EP... As it is, flaws & all. Like any creative project, at some point you have to just RELEASE the darn thing. 

I'm proud of this project. It's not perfect, but it's the product of a bunch of beautiful people, spending days & days together. I hope you enjoy it, even if you pick just one song. 

We've had a crazy life these past couple years, and I'm grateful for your patience.

Simply click the link above, enter your email address and zip code and then you'll get emailed a download link!

NOTE: Every single penny raised was spent on recording and mastering, and I truly (TRULY) apologize for any additional rewards that weren't able to be fulfilled.


Thank you for your support. I couldn't have had this experience without it!

Song preview!

Hey guys,

I'm excited to share a song preview with all of you! We've been mixing and mastering some of the tracks, and I'm REALLY happy with how they're sounding. My goal is to have the whole thing mixed and mastered by middle of August!

This journey of recording these 6 songs has been incredible. And LONG! Between the time I raised the money last year and today... we've gone on 2 missions trips, we're expecting a BABY GIRL in November, and our audio engineer took a full-time somewhere else... 

These aren't excuses, but simply my way of justifying a LONG process :)

I love all of you, and thank you deeply for supporting this dream of mine.

It's almost come to fruition :)

Enjoy this preview as a tiny token of my appreciation...

Sneak peek of some studio time!

Hey guys,

Here's a short clip I took yesterday while Nate was tracking some piano/organ.

We're making incredible progress! 5 of the 6 songs are tracked with the full band, and three more need some individual studio time on my part to throw together.

I hope you've enjoyed these little updates. I'll keep you in the loop about all of it, and even more so once we set a date for there release!

First day of recording was great!

Some incredible things happened here today. We tracked 2 songs almost entirely, with only vocals being left out. The band worked really well together, and our engineer, Brian, is a genius.

I can't thank you all enough. Those that have supported me, and have encouragement me.

I'm excited to share this all with you, and I'll keep everyone posted as things keep progressing!
