Sticks and Stones Pre-release. Get your first peak here! 

First, Please share :)

It was an easy choice to make 4 months ago when I began thinking about finally piecing together a new album- The first and only contact in my mind was Daniel Dennis. I discovered Daniel back in 2010 on a separate project and what drew me to his studio was the ability to take a concept and make it happen. Not only is Daniel a talented studio owner/engineer, he is a brilliant drummer, guitarist, and can play most any stringed instrument.  He is also a patient guy. Hours in a studio can make someone a little stir crazy. He was courteous and professional throughout the creative process. This album, I am thankful was recorded at Prime Cut Studio in Nashville. Thank you Daniel.

In the next 10 days, I plan on releasing one song at a time. I will give a little background for each and will ask you all to share. I feel that the musicians and vocalists (Jonathan Laird, Corbin Camp, Craig Pruett, Daniel Dennis, Ryan Joseph, Amanda Blount) did a great job of helping me create a sound unique to me. I hope you enjoy the next several days worth of songs I wrote from the heart about, people you may know, momma, dad, grandpa., dogs...etc. The only thing this album is missing, is a train. Special thanks to my wife who also played a part in this album. She simply said "OK" and turned me loose. I spent hours writing, and days preparing this project.  I truly hope you enjoy.

"Sticks and Stones" was actually an entirely different song a year ago. It went through several revisions before the one you hear today. It morphed into a song about two people in a relationship who have only dealt with problems with metaphorical "Sticks and stones" . And in the end, they find a way to build their house and home from love.  The female vocal you will hear is Amanda Blount. I am sure you will agree that she is amazing. I hope you enjoy this free preview. I will have downloads available in the next few days.
