On The Mend - Now Avaiable

Ok. So. I guess I need to tell everyone that the CD is out!

Go to:, to get a special pre-release special. Buy a T-shirt and get a free CD and digital download.

Hope you enjoy.

Also, find me on Facebook and become a fan, if you're a fan of the music!

Lastly. This blog will soon be moving to my new website sometime in Dec/Jan.

It's then that I hope to be consistent in providing updates and such.

Love and Peace

Back in Action

Sorry for the delay in posting!

The end of summer got to me. But now that 'life' is back in action, I'll be posting more frequently.

The record is coming along. Even though I was hoping for an August release, September was probably more realistic anyway.

Mixing is almost finished! We have gone through one round of mixing on 6 of the 8 songs, and after some minor tweeks, all the songs will be ready for mastering around Sept 12th. My Birthday!!!

I'll keep you posted. And more consistently!

Twitter & Music

I am Twitter and so can You.

Here's a cool way to use Twitter. Giving people an inside track on new music is always a plus!

Free Chains

A friend of mine has started a non-profit that helps fight child sex trafficking. Something I'm very passionate about!

Check out what they are doing to make this world a better place, here.

And get involved! We can all do a small part to make a big difference.

Summer Keeps On

I love Summer. The days are longer, which means we have tons more day light! And more daylight just makes me happy.

I leave again for Nashville Wed to work some more on the record. It's getting closer to being finished, but there's just a little more stuff I need to do to get it where I want it.

Unlimited Dowloads

Norway is introducing a new subscription plan for mobile downloads.

"NetCom, the Norwegian unit of Swedish telecom giant Telia Sonera, is planning to steal Nokia's thunder with NetCom FreeMusic, a three-month trial to offer free unlimited mobile-music downloads. [The offer] is a three-month pilot that gives subscribers access to a catalog of 50,000 tracks from Universal Music Group International. The project involves a selection of handsets from several mobile manufacturers. Each device will come accompany a voucher with a text number that will direct users to a mobile Internet site. Once they log in, customers can download as many of the participating tracks as they want. And they can keep the tracks indefinitely. But the downloaded music will be locked to the handset and cannot be transferred to another phone or PC. At the end of the three months, NetCom (one of Apple iPhone's distributors in Scandinavia) will examine consumers' response to the trial to determine how to proceed on a commercial basis."

Some people thing this is the future of music.

I think an internet radio model should be developed that takes the burden of payment off the consumer and places it on advertising. Much like conventional radio does today.

Love Me Some Statistics

Go here to see some stats on the culture of music in Great Britian.

Pretty straight up stats, but when you read into them a little it's really great stuff.

Though the Music Industry has been searching for answers to the digital age for some time, that doesn't mean that people are still not interested in music. It's quite the opposite. People are more in love with music today than ever.

The opportunity for us to find music that inspires us and connects with our lives is greater than ever.

On another note, people are spending more money to see live shows than they are on purchasing music. That's great!

AND. The CD is not dead. People still love getting a CD and looking through the artwork, pics, and lyrics of an album.

The Ups and Downs of Making a Record

Making this record has been a great experience so far. I couldn't have asked for anything to go more smoothly. But, I am getting anxious for the project to be finished so that I can start sharing with you the experience of my songs, how they've affected me, and hopefully, how they will impact you.

After getting back from Nashville yesterday, I am glad to see the album taking shape. And, I also heard some things that needed to be added. Hopefully, I will be going back up to Nashville next week to get some more recording accomplished so that I can stay on track for having everything completed in July!

Record is Coming Along

I head back out to Nashville this week to give some feedback on the mixing of the record. Jason is spending this week making some minor tweeks to the recordings so we can start mixing and keep things moving along.

The mixing should be finished by the middle of the week after next (Does that make sense?).

Then it's off to mastering and then CD duplication.

The closer I get to seeing this complete, the more excited I become.

Can't wait to share it with you!
