12.7.16. Day 3. Big thank you to everyone who is actually listening out there. This has been a particularly intense session of Morning Songs. The tune I wrote this morning, I've written from the perspective of a parent dealing with the knowledge of their child's struggle with mental illness. I can only imagine how helpless that must feel. I hope I did the subject even the slightest bit of justice.12.6.16 - The week continues, it always gets a little harder each day, but here goes. This song touches on anxiety and depression. I feel like we all suffer from both of these things sometimes in our lives, some obviously much more severely then others. It's the human condition, it's inevitable. We all need help when we are hit with these thoughts and feelings, and we all treat these symptoms differently, some of us self-medicate with alcohol, recreational drugs, even food, anything, others are diagnosed and take the medicine they've been prescribed, others exercise, or talk or write about it to deal with it. It's just a part of life and there is no shame in any of it. Hopefully this one came out alright...
12.5.16 - It's been almost exactly 3 years since i've delivered a Morning Song, I think that might have been a little too long. But I'm back, hopefully for the entire week, and this week the theme is "Mental Illness." Not exactly an easy subject to tackle, but it is just so present in the world we live in, and it directly effects almost everyone I know in some way. (read more about the song on YouTube)

3.31.16 - This Is The Year is the title track off our new record that comes out in May. It sums up the place this band has gotten to over the past year, the future that lies ahead, and at the same time leaves the past in the past. There is no doubt we can all relate to the sentiment of this song, and I think the video captures how we're all feeling and relays that message even clearer. This IS the year, and so is next year, and the year after that... We shot this at The Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, NC, it was a damn good time.
