Digital Release
Tuesday 3/27/12

Dear Friends,
A quick reminder to everyone that my new (9th overall) album, BiRDS OF RELOCATiON, officially releases digitally tomorrow, Tuesday 3/27/12.

For those of you more interested in getting a physical CD, it will be another 2-4 weeks before I have actual CDs in hand, but rest assured, those are coming (honestly, I still prefer physical CDs, too). For now, you can pre-order the physical CD in my webstore.
Thank you for all your support, whether via bringing me in for a show, purchasing my music and/or paintings, occasional prayers, encouraging notes, sticking with me as I write about all manner of life realities. As you’ve probably already surmised, I write these songs, in a way, because I need to know I’m not alone. I suspect you want to hear this, too, from time to time. It is a good and, dare I say, holy privilege to have an opportunity to write about all manner of subjects. God is merciful, wrathless, and more good than I deserve.
If you are interested in purchasing the digital version – including the full art design – of BiRDS OF RELOCATiON, you can order right now in The Rabbit Room.  I will soon be offering downloads for sale in my webstore, as well.
Please spread the word about the album via your favorite social media outlets, or even better, via word of actual mouth.
THANK YOU for your support, and for not snickering at a short fool who, for better or worse, wears his heart on his sleeve.


Tell your friends!

The easiest way to help is to pass it on!

BiRDS OF RELOCATION Digital Release Day MARCH 27

So pleased and excited to announce that the new album, BiRDS OF RELOCATION (produced by Ben Shive), will digitally release on Tuesday March 27 with physical copies to follow (TBA). I'm very excited for you to hear this album.

Though I'm still working on the final song order, I thought you would at least like to see the song titles:
The Old Year
Don't Hold Your Breath
Soul and Flesh
Where Would I Go
Lost and Found
Different, Separate Lives
Today Dream
No Stone Unturned
Summer of '69 (Not really. That's a catchy Bryan Adams song, though.)
The New Year
Fighting for Life

More info to come on pre-orders, touring, physical CD release. Stay tuned. THANKS and spread the word.

BGVs, How I Love (Singing) Thee

After finishing singing all the lead/main vocals some time last week, I have begun singing BGVs (BackGround Vocals) on the album (still titled BiRDS OF RELOCATION).

This is the stage of record-making that is, in my opinion, absolutely magical. Drums and bass are fine and dandy, electric guitars and keys are rich beauties, but, for me, layered vocals, sometimes thick, sometimes sparse, padded oohs and aahs are where I'll put my money every time. I am thoroughly enjoying this opportunity to be challenged as a tenor male, as you are about to hear.

This is an example from today's work in the studio: you're hearing just the main vocal and BGVs/harmonies isolated and "acapella." This is the outro to a new song, "Fighting For Life." The guy at the helm is Andy Gullahorn, one of my favorite songwriters.
