Writings & Ramblings

Everything is art.

In all of my striving and my earthly attempts in this world to find purpose and meaning and fulfillment, I feel like I’ve been missing the purpose of what’s really going on here. As a musician, I have a long-standing relationship with my art, but as someone who has to also market it in order […]

Good songwriting comes from having skill, rhythm, and a solid understanding of song structure (the ability to lay out your […]

Well don’t you look good right now.

So it’s been a while.  I’ve decided to restart my music career and if you’re reading this, you should probably high five the screen immediately. Like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and SoundCloud.  Do you have any idea how much I appreciate you listening?  Come to a show soon and I would very […]
