After years of working on our latest full length, Gush - the band and I have received great news that we're unable to share at this moment; but this results in us post-poning Gush LP until 2015. However, we are very excited to be releasing a special edition *gush EP in Chicago on October 10 at Schubas Tavern to all pre-ordered ticket purchasers. Celebrating the release with us, our friends The Kuhls  and songwriter/His Ego guitarist Ryan Joseph Anderson  amongst many more surprises.

Tomorrow We'll Know Why

"Tomorrow We'll Know Why" is the second track off of "Gush" that I'm happy to finally release in preparation for our October 10th release date. This song has had many incarnations, yet I feel as though we may have gotten it right this time...well, much closer at least. Email me if you'd like a download of the track at

Spread love.

Jewel Commerical / Pieholden EP

Happy 4th my friends! Enjoy this new Jewel commercial that I'm grateful to have been apart of. Thanks to all of my family, friends, bandmates, and the entire crew for being apart of the taping, bbq and recording session. Speaking of that - prior to the bbq, I had the honor of tracking a six song, one-take EP of new demo's with Robbie Hamilton at Pieholden Studios. So, enjoy the commercial and my Pieholden EP.

Watch the commercial...

Love and Tambourines

Love & Tambourines is a full feature documentary-ish film by director Jeremy Cohen and actress/writer Stephanie Hunt. The film captures individualistic perceptions on love, told on Valentines Day in Austin, Texas a few years back. It was a great honor to be in the film and quite refreshing to see a beautiful piece of art created/released for under $50.
