THANK YOU FOR HELPING MAKE MY NEW ALBUM, HYMN, A REALITY!
My Kickstarter campaign for my new album, Hymn, is a little over halfway through. Thanks to you, I've reached my $5,000 goal with 13 days to spare! I can't say thanks enough!
Still want to contribute? It would mean a lot to me! You can do so at my Kickstarter campaign page:
Any additional funding my campaign receives will go towards three things:
1. It will help fund a Spring 2015 tour, so I can play these hymns for you live and in person.
2. It will go towards the $7,000+ of additional recording and promotion expenses that this album will cost me to release and promote.
3. If I hit $10,000, 200% of my goal, I will personally make a $500 donation to Compassion International, an organization through which my girlfriend Kimberly and I sponsor a child in Ethiopia. Compassion International is a child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world.
The album will feature my rendition of six timeless hymns as well as six I've written myself. For more information, visit my Kickstarter campaign page.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support!

I NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE MY UPCOMING ALBUM A REALITY.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to record an album of hymns. Throughout my life, hymns have spoken to me in a powerful way, in a way that most other songs cannot. They have spoken louder this year, as I've been faced with some significant struggles. So, now that I'm a fully independent solo artist once again, and am free to record whatever I want, I've decided to create a new album, simply entitled Hymn.
This album will contain six timeless hymns that mean a lot to me, hymns such as "It Is Well With My Soul," "Before The Throne," "I Have Decided," "Nothing But The Blood," and more. I've put my own spin on these hymns, staying true to the emotion behind them but arranging them in a unique fashion, running the gamut from electro/pop to one arrangement that simply features bells, drums, and vocals.
Hymn will also feature six hymns that I've written myself, hymns that have been borne out of my experience as an imperfect believer in a fallen world. Hymns that you, too, can hopefully identify with and sing. These are songs you may have already heard me play live: songs like "What Kind Of Love Is This?", "Father," and "I Need More."
Recording an album isn't cheap. Start to finish, Hymn will cost upwards of $12,000. I've already recorded much of this album, but simply don't have sufficient funds for the rest of the recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing, and promotion costs necessary for this album to be released.

OF SHOES AND SALADS.
We were put on this earth to love. More often than not, I fail at that.
One encounter with a guy with no shoes a couple days ago taught me a lot about what matters.

IT IS WELL: OFFICIALLY RELEASED TODAY.
Today, May 12, my rendition of the timeless hymn "It Is Well" is officially available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and wherever else digital music is available.
These last three months have been a trying time for me. In the midst of almost constant pain, frustration, immobility, and financial difficulty, the words of this old hymn have given me hope. So, I recorded it in the hopes that it, and He, could do the same for you.
After reading about Horatio Spafford, the hymn's author, and the suffering that he endured, my trials pale in comparison. However, it's safe to say that we will all encounter hardship, and we are all in need of hope and perspective. I hope this song can provide that for you, as it has for me.
Get it on iTunes and Amazon.
