My friend @johnmarkmcmillan invited me to sing on a remix of one of his songs for “The Lightning Sessions”. I jumped at the opportunity, and the result is this new collaborative version of the song “Magic Mirror” - a song for fathers finding new dimensions of God in the light of their children. I love it. Song and album available EVERYWHERE ⚡️

Hello all! I’ve been on Instagram a lot less over the past few months, so I thought I’d give y’all an update (long post alert 😉):
*****
* We've Moved! After a few false starts (we almost moved to Charlotte, NC, and then almost to Bloomington, IN), our family left Portland, OR last summer and found a home in Muncie, IN. Muncie is a small college town where I came to faith, made my first 2 albums, met my wife, and had our first child. Now the Lord has brought us back! Needless to say, this move turned out to be a bit of a full circle homecoming.
* New Music is in the works! After many months of full-time home renovation, I finally have a new home studio up and running.  I'm currently working on a full-length album of psalms, hymns, & spiritual songs, also re-mixing & re-mastering my old out-of-print albums "Stone Tree" & "Underquiet," and finally, a side project addressing themes of social justice. Look for new releases to begin dropping by the end of 2018/early 2019. * No Touring. For the time being, I've felt convicted to stop all touring, as I sense this is a  season to pour myself wholeheartedly into the labor of songwrting and music production.
* New Baby! Michelle & I are expecting our 5th child by the end of September! We're so excited! I never thought we'd have so many children, but I'd have it no other way. *****
PARTNERSHIP
*Without the generous support and encouragement of my listeners, I could not have created and released the albums that I have up to this point. As a fully independent musician, I can't tell you enough how much listener support has made all the difference! Please consider partnering with me, and praying for me, as I now labor to birth new songs. Your help is appreciated. Thanks guys! (Donate link in profile)

A big thanks to all who came out to last nights show at The Majestic in Dallas. Such a beautiful venue, but more importantly, you all were such a fun audience to be with! Last show in Houston tonight (sold out 🙌🏻).

On our way up to Dallas from last nights show in Austin, and decided to grab a quick cup of coffee at @commongroundswaco with our kiwi bro @strahanmusic. Love this place 😉. See you in a few Dallas!

Yesterday our first stop in TX was to play a secret show at Laity Lodge. What a place! Man, I didn’t know rural Texas could look like this! Totally spent the day at this blue lagoon...and then kept forgetting words to songs because I felt so sun baked. Worth it...

Announcing my LAST short tour of 2018! That’s right, only 3 shows left in Texas next month, before I enter an indefinite season of hiding to make new songs⚡️Come on out and enjoy a decade of highlights from my past work, before I move on to the solitary labor of making something new. Thanks all for your continuing support ✌🏻

A big thanks to everyone who came out to our show last night in Portland, Maine, and for the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra for sitting in with us! Until next time ✌🏻.

One more from last night. Thanks for having us @whiteeaglehalljc - Here we come Portland, Maine!

These days, most of the live shows I attend are when I’m watching bands I’m on tour with 😂. But honestly, what a joy to get to watch @drewholcombmusic and crew bring it...man, they put on a heck of a show! Thanks for sharing the night with us Jersey!
