Getting my hopes up, friends!
I have new albums of originals coming! I say "albums" because there are two projects in two stages.
1. Hatteras EP - Available NOW! Get this little baby project from the usual online vendors OR (better) get it via Pledgemusic so your money also goes toward project #2 - see below! Includes: Getting My Hopes Up, You've Got a Home (new version), Hatteras, PLUS the instrumental version of Getting My Hopes Up, because you'll want to listen to that sweet blues guitar for dayyys.
2. New Studio Album - Releasing early 2018. This one is being made in partnership with friends like you! Pre-order it today to help me get to the studio with producer Ben Shive in August!
In case you haven't seen it, here's a trailer in which I tell you about this album AND share a clip of the first recording!
That song, "One Day" has been near and dear to my heart since I wrote it about 18 months ago. I recorded the first verse through tears:
It's hard to sing when you're crying,
Hard to leave when you're tied down
It's hard to sleep when you're fighting
For your life like you are right now...
The verse finds me right where I am. But the chorus saves me:
You'll do it one day
One thing at a time
One hope in a coming light
Don't try to swallow the ocean
Keep doing one day
Til one day you're free.
And the bridge, the part you can hear in the video? I'm not sure where it came from exactly because it sends me soaring.
I want this album to do both of those things for you & many others. I want to give you songs that see you right there...and also save you and bring you joy.
If we reach 50% of our total Plegemusic goal by end of day tomorrow, a super generous listener wants to contribute another $2500 towards this album.
I'd love it if you'd hop over and pre-order today, so you can not only have the music sent to you as soon as we have it ready, but also so we can take the journey through the creative process together. That's the absolute BEST part of crowdsourced projects. Making new friends and sharing the road a while.
THANK YOU for reading, listening, interacting, supporting! Grateful beyond words.
