I'm so excited to let you know that I've been working with producer Casey Smith and KnottBrite Studio on our upcoming third record! We're cutting this new record over the next few months, and I can't wait for you to hear it! The recording is going to feature Casey Smith, Ryan Inselman, and my bandmates, Curt Hutchens, Pat Wheeler, Dan Carlsen and John Fitzgerald.
I've been so fortunate to get to know so many of you over the last couple of years, and I just wanted to say thank you for supporting me and grass root indie artists! Keep rockin'!
