I was reluctant to release this simple collection of self-recorded acoustic demos. They feel a little too naked and simple. But a conversation with a close friend convinced me otherwise. And so here they are.
The title is a nod to what's become my daily ritual - rising early when the house is quiet and it's often still dark outside. It's a habit that took some effort to establish but which has proved fruitful. All of these songs were started and finished in those early morning writing sessions.
A while back, I took a few of my favorite 52 in 52 tracks and headed down to Nashville to spend some time in the studio with producer Greg LaFollette. We had a lot of fun working together and taking some fresh approaches with the songs. I'm excited about the results!
Worth the Wait
The wedding of a very special couple with an equally special story led me to say to myself, 'Hey, let's write a song!' (C'mon, it's what I do.)
The result was Worth the Wait and it's now available on my Bandcamp site. The newlyweds enjoyed it and I hope you do too.
52 Weeks, 52 Songs
I set a big goal for myself back in 2013 - write, record and release a song a week for an entire year. It was quite the challenge and there were more than a few moments when I didn't think I'd make it. Thankfully, I did. See below.
Since wrapping up the project, many have asked if I would make the music available for sale. Well, I'm happy to report that all 52 are now available for purchase on my Bandcamp page. Happy listening!
