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. *****
*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)
* Our growing family at our home in Indiana (with Poppy, age 2; Peregrin, age 5; Shepherd, age 8; Heron, age 10). Michelle 7 months pregnant with our 5th, and going strong!
* July recording session with producer Isaac Wardel & team at White Star Studio in Charlottesville, VA
