The “Somewhere in Between” EP!

The “Somewhere in Between” EP is here! You can buy and download by clicking below!

You can also purchase the EP on iTunes, Amazon, and stream it on Spotify. However, the cheapest option for you and the most beneficial option for me is through the bandcamp link above.

I put a lot of time, energy, and money into this project to get the sound I wanted on my own terms. I’m proud to say I did it independently in a timely manner without spending a fortune. A lot of that is thanks to Colin Healy who helped me record and produce this EP. Without his talents and his insight, the end results would not have been the same.

I’m at a time and place in my life where things are a bit foggy. I feel slightly older and wiser, but still only have a rough outline of what comes next. What I do know is that I can’t wait to play these songs live. I hope to see you at some shows, and maybe we can figure this out together.

I am not at the end or beginning, it’s true. I’m somewhere in between the two.


2nd Single – “Conversation About You”

To listen + download this song, click here or below.

Some of you may remember this song from my Big Meadow Sessions video.

So the next single from “Somewhere in Between” is here! And it’s not Sunday! Single Sunday was probably a one time thing, so I hope you enjoyed it. I realized most people are busy on Sunday nights, myself included! D’oh.

You just never know what to expect, so stay tuned here for more updates!

Thanks for listening!



Lyrics below:

1st Single Sunday!

Today’s the day. The 1st Single Sunday has arrived!

Here’s the lead single from my new EP. So give it a listen, and let me know what you think!

To download this song, click here or above. (The download is name your price, so if you want it FOR FREE simply enter zero dollars.)

There’s more Single Sundays to come, so stay tuned! The next song might not be next Sunday, but the one after that (2 weeks). I say this without certainty since we’re still in the mixing phase for the other tracks. I don’t want to promise anything and have it be rushed. This song was done a little bit ahead of the others, so I was anxious to let you in on it!

Thanks for reading & listening,


PS: I almost forgot! The lyrics to “Put You In a Song” are below.

Let’s Get Naked …with Songs

This Tuesday, Oct 23rd, I’ll be playing Naked Songs!

Fortunately for you, I will be wearing clothes. Here’s an explanation from the Hazy Shade Productions website:

The concept of “Naked Songs” is music stripped down to its bare essence, with just one voice and one instrument…This is not an open mic.  Each showcase will feature several invited songwriters performing up to four of their original songs.  The emphasis is on ORIGINAL music.

Great! That’s essentially what I’ve been doing this whole time as a solo acoustic artist. So fine by me! (This is subject to change eventually. The logistics of a live band are in the works!)

Bob Ogburn Barn Blowout!

So go ahead and say Bob Ogburn out loud. Still not funny? Ok, I guess it’s a you-had-to-be-there joke that only Taylor and I find hilarious. That’s not even a real person as far as I know, but Taylor Ogburn sure is. And boy, what a guy.

Beyond being hilarious and one of the most genuinely talented creative people I know (music stuff, video stuff, other stuff, etc.), he’s also insanely driven in pursuing a full time career as a musician. So much so, in fact, that he’s planning to road trip out to LA with mainly just his guitar and the bare essentials. He’ll be playing shows along the way and blogging & vlogging his adventures…..


Before he goes, he’s throwing one last hurrah here in RVA with a weekend of food, fun, and music of course. And it’s all going down at a barn, house, thing…. It used to be a barn? Now it’s a house….whatever, it’s cool. I promise.

Campfire, corn hole, and lots of music. Come one or both days! I dare you not to enjoy yourself.

Sept. 29 & 30 | House/Barn Show 7PM at 32 Cobblestone Circle Henrico, VA 23238

with Taylor Ogburn, myself, Colin Healy, Maggie Glasgow, Joshua Eadie, Alex Troisi

Recording Break + Shows!

So I’m taking a little siesta from recording this week. Colin is busy with other projects (including recording my bud, Taylor Ogburn, who I’ll talk about later in this post. Get excited for continued reading!), and I myself just started a new job that is hectic to say the least.

However, that doesn’t mean the music will stop! The show must go on, and speaking of shows, I have a few of my own coming up:

Recording Update

I’m currently studio chilling with Colin Healy (whose music you should check out right now), and we seem to be on a roll.

Similar to this.


Anyway, we’ve finished laying down the drum tracks on 6 songs! Which I guess I should take this chance to officially say that the end result of  this recording project will be a 6 song EP titled…….(drumrolllllll)…….. “Somewhere In Between”

This title describes the point I am in my life, and I think these songs reflect that. Speaking of which, here’s the track list:

  1. Put You In a Song
  2. Indisposed
  3. Make a Decision
  4. Through the Fear
  5. Conversation About You
  6. Every time  (AKA the Bobby Pin Song, click here to find out why.)

So that’s the game plan, folks. Bass tracks are almost done and “Put You In a Song” is super close to being all the way done. So hopefully you’ll get to hear that soon since it’s going to be the lead single!

Thank you for reading and keep being awesome. Yes, you. You are awesome.



Started recording with Colin Healy this week, and thus far the tune we’re working is sounding yummy. We might even record a whole batch of tunes, but time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates on the recording process and eventually some yummy new ear candy to chew on.

No…not that kind.



Oh, yuck. Definitely not that kind. Why does this exist?! I don’t suggest Googling “ear candy.”
