Leap of Faith

One song. That’s all I was going to do. I composed “I Am Broken” back in 2018 for myself in response to trauma in my life. The next thing I know, I’ve traveled to Nashville three times in the space of a year. Acted in a music video. Cranked out five more songs. Did a […]

Inspiration

Boy-howdy, why does inspiration have to strike in the middle of the night? Why can’t it hit me when I’m supposed to be cleaning toilets? I haven’t even remotely finished the last four songs I started a few nights ago. Nope, gotta have a fifth one pop into my brain.

New Song

Had a blast teaching my new song to this cutie-patootie. This is the song that I finished in one week (after a long hiatus). We cut the demo in one take. Not only is Megan a great singer, she is a great friend.

Happy Dance

It’s almost 3 o’clock in the morning and I’m considering doing a happy dance around the living room because I just finished the song I started last week. Actually, I finished it at 2:20 a.m., but it took me forever to take a selfie. It was hard to hold that heavy clock and my phone […]

Back in the Songwriting Saddle

I’m not gonna lie. I haven’t written a single note or lyric since February (except for a co-write in May) and I’ve been a bit down since the concert back on September 10. Then, I had a great meeting today with my friend, Elijah, and that’s all it took. Of course, it would have been […]

Concert Rehearsal

  I am so lucky to hang out with this great group; we’re just a bunch of regular people—practicing tonight for the concert coming up on September 10—who a) love music, and b) love Jesus. I even sang backup (into a mic) on purpose. What’s happening to me?!

Happiness

I just got the master of my latest recording. This song is so catchy. Boy-howdy, that’s two nights in a row full of music…. I hardly know what to do with all this happiness.

Making Lemonade

Where there is a will, there is a way. The painter has gone home for the day. I may be breathing a few too many paint fumes, but I’m going to get this project done. I have until 9 o’clock tomorrow morning when he comes back and covers up my piano again. Or, I guess […]

My Nashville Notebook

Just finished the final edits on my latest creation. The sheet music has been put into my brand-new “Nashville Notebook,” alongside the song I started back on January 9. Now, I’m going to celebrate by dancing around the kitchen to the catchy tune “Dream” by Blue Sky Riders. You are never too old to dream, […]

Fun Times

A “sound booth” in the living room? Sure, why not. Just making a little demo on a Friday night…until midnight.
