one step closer.

I am excited to let you all know that we finished recording all the parts for the album this week! My good friend Alex Toney came in to record the final electric guitar tones and they sound incredible!

The album still needs to be mixed and mastered - I'm scheduled to do that starting in early December so we have a few weeks to let our ears rest and be refreshed. 

I love this verse, 

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
—Jeremiah 29:12–13

This resonates so true with me when I think about where & when these songs were birthed. It is a continual journey we all have to discover on our own. Every song on this album is an original and they each mean a lot to me. It is my prayer that during both the loud driving bits and the softer intimate moments you would experience His gentle whisper to come and find rest in Him.

Tangible Joy

Lord, the ocean roars. The mighty ocean sounds like thunder as the waves crash on the shore. The crashing waves of the sea are loud and powerful, but The Lord above is even more powerful. // Psalms 93:3-4 ERV

These verses have been such an inspiration for me while working on this project. I've been pouring my heart into these songs and when I hear them grow in their various stages of production I still hear the original versions when I wrote them. Whether that was alone in my work truck, singing my heart out; at home late at night with only my guitar or up to my elbows in dirty laundry at work... it was a time of desperation and all I could do was lift my eyes up and grab a hold of the hope I believed I could find in Christ. He came through. I felt hope. Deep within I discovered a tangible joy. 

When I look back and see how He has picked me up and been so faithful I am blessed by the truth of these words, "The crashing waves of the sea are loud and powerful, but The Lord above is even more powerful."  

He truly is.

coming along.

Well we have started the recording process on all but one of the songs. September will be a busy month in the studio but then unfortunately there won't be time until the end of October to go in and finish. We're still on track and although I was hoping for a release before Christmas, it looks like it will realistically be in the new year. 

I want to do it right and have been really happy with the process so far. I'm excited for you to hear the sounds we're creating as we worship our King!

Bless you all. 

T. 

thank you.

Well we did it!! I am so incredibly grateful and humbled by your support! The Indiegogo fundraiser has come to a close and we reached our goal to finish the new album.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I'm going back into the studio next week to continue working on the project and am excited for what new sounds we come up with. The plan is to have a late fall/early winter release so stay tuned to these updates!

For all of you that contributed to the campaign, know that without your support this project couldn't move forward and you have blessed me tremendously. 

I hope the record blesses you. May He be glorified.

almost there.

30 hours left! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are feeling so blessed by everyone's generous support! We are at 97% and I am confident we will reach our goal. 

I am extremely grateful for the support and love shown during this campaign and am very excited to continue creating in the studio and finish the record He has placed on my heart!

You are all a huge blessing.
