I Just Became A Sailor

So here’s the deal,
I’ve spent the last four weeks of my life in a studio in east Nashville. Some wonderful people ad I have been investing and immersing ourselves wholly and heartily into twelve songs that will soon comprise my second record that is tentatively named “Cannons”. It’s been quite a rewarding process. One which I am sure I will expound on in a later blog. But for now I will leave you with a photo. I wanted to clear my mind one day of all the sounds and songs, so I took a little trip on a boat.


I’ve always liked boats.


P.S. By the way a friend of mine named Christian Rios shot this photo. check him out at
