Check out this shot of me conducting the group! Incase you didn't know, I'm well into recording a new full-length album, though there's definitely quite a way to go. This full project is one of GREAT meaning to me, and I'm already dying to share it with you. Last Monday I had the privilege of recording some AMAZINGLY accomplished string players, playing my arrangements for five new songs. Though the full album may be a bit of a wait, you can actually expect a new single coming soon! More news on that to come!
Also, this is actually screenshot of a full behind-the-scenes video of recording this new song. It's exclusively available on Patreon, along with many other things like lyric sneak-peeks and other recording session footage. You can check that out at the Patreon tab up top!
2019 was an adventure. I released a couple of singles, numerous cover songs, toured the United States, and continued my tour in Europe. I put together this recap video of vlogs from the road, pictures from the cities and different countries, and commentary!
I'd like to shed a little light on some of the nuances of the album artwork inside of "Stripped Sessions." The handwriting on the right panel is taken from the original sheet of paper I wrote the lyrics of "Meant To Be" on. That's my writing from "in the middle of the night." The writing on the left panel was taken from an old school notebook, in which a writing assignment was to write a note to your future self. You can see the year is 2002. My handwriting reads "dear self, how are you? Have you written any song lately? I wish I could hear them..." All of this is superimposed over pictures I took looking down into a box of keepsakes and memories I have, filled with old hand-made albums of my music that I used to give out to my friends in High School, and my old lyric notebook that I'd carry around everywhere.
