Album Out Tomorrow! (Also, preview "Bedtime Song")

It's been a long time coming. Many hours in my studio. Countless minutes re-drafting, co-writing, and pouring over the keyboard.  Going so far as to move my family to Nashville, TN for the recording process.  This album is such a real part of me.  To give it to you is to give you a genuine piece of myself. I hope you love it.  For now, preview this lovely lullaby that will have you waltzing your way into bed tonight. This is "Bedtime Song."  Pre-order the album now on iTunes:

A Song a Day - I Take Flight

The song of the day is one that I wrote with a wonderful Nashville, based artist, Trent Dabbs.  For me, this song is about being able to love people, while at the same time finding your happiness totally independently of them.  But this song could be interpreted in so many different beautiful ways.  What does it mean for you?  Preview "I Take Flight" below. Available on iTunes this Tuesday!

A Song a Day: Picture Show

I grew up right next to a drive-in movie theater. The tree house on our property was the perfect place for watching silent films and listening to teens and college students flirt and laugh from the beds of trucks and the backseats of station wagons. That old drive-in screen is the backdrop of my childhood where I watch the scenes of my life flicker in front of me. Today's song is "Picture Show." Releases on iTunes this Tuesday! (9/10)

P.S.  If you're in Utah, I'll be co-headlining with Peter Breinholt at the Ed Kenley Amphitheater in Layton, UT tonight! Get tickets here:

A Song a Day: Shadow Children

Today's song is all about the bittersweet of growing out of childhood. Someone recently posted that this song made them want to build forts with their children and to tell them to never grow up. That sums it up quite nicely. This is "Shadow Children." (Available on iTunes, this Tuesday!)

A Song a Day: Little Red Bike

My dad taught me how to ride a bike on a little red Schwinn.  How I loved that bike, circling the house with it for hours on end.  More than that, my dad taught me how to be a strong, independent and influential human being.  Today's song is "Little Red Bike."

When I was in Brooklyn for the mixing of this song, I stepped out for lunch with my producer and mixing engineer. I nearly ran right into a little red Schwinn just like my childhood bike on the way to the restaurant.  It was as if it showed up to say "thank you."

Available on iTunes, Sep. 10th! Pre-order it now here:
