Life comes in seasons. The time has come for me to get back into
the studio again. Over the past three years, I have written around
40 songs, and in the coming months, I plan to choose 13 to record
for my first “real” full-length release. Since 2009, when I
released “the Clay, the Seed, the Stone” I’ve been in many places
geographically, vocationally, financially, and emotionally. I’ve
been able to document my journeys, joys, and hardships through my
music and I’m excited to begin work on a solid full-length record
with the help of some very talented musicians and producers. I
would like to invite you to take part in this process with

destined to make this record. Although, I have yet to start the
actual recording process, I plan to collaborate with an Atlanta
based producer instead of self-producing like I have done in the

I will be using the majority of the contributions I raise through
this campaign to fund my project, but I also plan to donate a
portion of the proceeds to World Bicycle Relief (WBR), which is an
organization dedicated to providing independence and livelihood

that I love to bike! The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles
empowers individuals, their families and their communities. So this
organization and its mission to provide transportation to those in
need is a very special cause to me.
I hope to see you when I hit the road next year.
Thank you so very, very much!
