Well, it’s been almost a year since I held a contest to win one of five limited live/acoustic versions of my new album. The whole thing delayed longer than I like for several reasons. Well, the dust has settled, and production of “Rise Anew” is in full swing. Which means the five lucky winners will be getting one of these in the mail soon! Thank you all so much for supporting me and being so patient!
Let me use this as a chance to say I am so excited to bring these songs to everyone very soon. I have some of the best musicians I have ever met working very hard to make my simple songs sound extra special for you. “Rise Anew” tells a deeply personal story, and I am hopeful it will resonate with you. It’s an honor to make music for you.
Soli Deo Gloria
I need new clothes. BAD. Everything is in such poor condition and I don’t have enough essential pieces. I only have 1 pair of work pants…
Still poor 2 years later LOLZ
Such gorgeous lump crab. Large male heavy crabs made infinitely better because they were FREE! (Taken with Instagram)
Picking crabs is a nasty business, but man I miss this! My mouth is watering. I miss Maryland crabs.

Hilarious that I was so impressed with BoomBozz pizza when we first visited the Ville. Better pizza options: Mellow Mushroom, Spinelli’s, Blue Dog Bakery(they have an amazing bacon, poached egg and arugula pizza), and so far or favorite—Impelizerri’s.
So…Louisville. Louisville, Louisville, Louisville. I hope you’ve been practicing your pronunciation, because I did and I didn’t embarrass myself once! This city is amazing, I’m telling you. I didn’t anticipate it, but I think I’m in love.
We got to the city at around 2pm on Saturday and checked into the Legacy Hotel. Right away the vibes were good. The guy at the desk is a Boyce student and is from Maryland! What-what! We got all checked in and he suggested a place for us to attend church the next day. Go to our room and it is awesome! I instagrammed a pic of our room. Free doesn’t always equal good things, but this was a very good thing. Because we were visiting the college for the first time, we got to stay 2 nights for free at the hotel. So generous! The building was older, but not dated. And you could see a row of cute houses from our windows.
So I never wrote a part 2…but I’m contemplating some things about this tumblr. Like whether to delete and completely restart, or delete and leave tumblr…we shall see.
1 track album
Head over to my bandcamp page and you can download a limited acoustic version of a new song called “Slow Bones.” Each download includes a digital booklet with lyrics.
i’m one of those annoying people who’s always like “omg i know that actor from somewhere omg i recognize them whAT WERE THEY IN” when watching tv shows/movies who then proceeds to look it up on their phone and inform everyone that said actor was an extra in an episode of some stupid 90s sitcom once
“Feed my sheep…feed my sheep…feed my sheep.” The husband and wife duo sang those words over one of the silliest/simplest melodies I had ever heard. I sat next to my usual youth group friends like I did every Sunday morning and we all tried not to laugh. This 70-something southern gospel troupe was…
“I don’t want to waste your time with music you don’t need.”
That is the opening line of Over the Rhine’s album “Trumpet Child.” Most of their lyrics resonate with me on a regular basis, but something about that line really hit home. Am I wasting your time? Am I wasting my time? Do you need this?…
SPICE ME UP BABY
This looks amazing because I love pepper
