I can’t believe its June and 2013 is already halfway over. So much has changed in the last 12 months for me. My sound, my band, my hair… and i think i’ve finally found out who I want to be as a musician.
It’s crazy to think that a year ago I was gearing up to release my debut album, Tell Everything with producer/engineer Adamm Mitchell. Now a year and 2 releases later, I’m back in the studio with him finishing up the final touches on my sophomore release.
After a month of pre-pro and just 2 weeks in the studio, I’m happy to say that tracking for Statelines is finally complete! The album is now in the process of being mixed, mastered, and duplicated and is one step closer to being in YOUR hands. I can say for certain that I’ve never been more excited to release new music, nor been more proud of songs I’ve created and molded together than the ones about to be released to you.
With the first 4 songs of Statelines already released on a free EP back in April, you have a little taste of whats to come this summer. There are definitely some surprises on the way including another guest feature that I’m really excited about!
Over the next few weeks, there will be a ton of things revealed along with a release date, track listing, song streams, a huge release show announcement and maybe even a couple surprises along the way.
Thanks for all the support and stay tuned as we make this summer one to remember with Statelines.
I hope you are all enjoying the new music! I’m extremely excited to say that in the short time that Statelines – EP has been out, it has already almost received 1,000 downloads. Huge thank you to everyone of you for picking it up and spreading the word about the release!

On that note, I am pleased to announce that at the end of May, I will be heading back into the studio to finish the upcoming full-length Statelines. The record is set to release this summer with an exact date announcing soon. I literally have a book full of songs and ideas written, and its been quite the process narrowing them down to fit on the album. I can’t explain how excited I am to get back in and get the rest of these songs recorded for you to hear.
Also, I’ll be out playing festivals, colleges, and regional shows all summer long. Already announced dates are May 18th at Western Washington University, Bite of Seattle on July 20th, and next fridays An Acoustic Evening at the Q Cafe, with many more shows on the way! Be sure to check back as more dates roll in for the next few months. This is gonna be a crazy summer and I can’t to experience it all with you.
