EXCITED TO BE BACK AT ROK N FONDUE THIS FRIDAY NIGHT AT 9PM! COME HANG OUT IF YOU'RE IN THE AREA!
Dear friends and family, On Christmas day, my wife and I received a gift that we had been praying for for over six years. We were having a baby! I can't describe to you the happiness that we felt as we kept staring at our positive pregnancy test. It was overwhelming joy! Our lives began to instantly change as we started to schedule doctor appointments, change what we were eating, and read pregnancy books. We couldn't wait to meet our little babes. A few months later we got to hear our little one's heartbeat, and got our first official picture of our little raspberry. I never dreamed the love and attachment would be so strong in just a few months, but man... I already had so many plans for little babes.
But just a few weeks later we were told by our doctor that we had lost our baby. The pain was so powerful. I felt cheated of so many experiences and memories. My wife was my superhero. Being able to pray and talk with her and have her love and strength through this situation was everything for me. The happiness, pain, faith, tears, doubt, prayer, anger, gratefulness, and love we've experienced through this situation have brought us closer together, closer to Jesus, and have ultimately left us with hope and peace.
My father-in-law had a vision before the Lord took our baby home. He said he saw the three of us in a park. Our baby had big dark eyes, black curly hair, and the cutest smile and laugh. It's something that I think about often and makes me even more excited for heaven. As a father who has experienced miscarriage, the pain is excruciating, but the comfort of Jesus is unmatched. Our baby never felt or experienced pain, hunger, disease, a broken bone, the loss of a loved one, a sunburn, or even a paper cut. My child knew only the love of mom and dad, and then the love of Jesus. And I think that is a pretty fantastic life.

12/4/15 Hey Everybody!
I can't believe it's already December! This year is flying by! I just wanted to take some time and give you guys an update on the Progress of my E.P.! I'm excited to ANNOUNCE that all the tracking for the record has been finished and we are now in the mixing/mastering portion of the process!
I had the PRIVILEGE of TRACKING this project at Calvary Studios in Costa Mesa, California with my good friend Brenden Mcpeek. Brenden ENGINEERED the drum/vocal portion of this project for me, he helped produced vocals, and even sang some BGV's! I'm so grateful for his hard work, insight, and honesty. I can't think of a better dude to have with me in the studio! such good times!
I had the opportunity to play drums on this project which is something I've always wanted to do. I also tracked all the guitars, percussion, and lead vocals for the record as well. I'm so used to singing back up in the studio, but It was such an amazing EXPERIENCE getting to hear ideas that most of the time start with me humming a melody in my head, and then singing it into my phone, to hearing a full band version coming into my headphones while I sang over the top of it. I would miss my cue at times because I was so excited with how everything was sounding! haha so much fun!
My other Go-to dude on this project has been Danny "D" Mills. Danny helped me arrange some music on this project, ENGINEERED and played all the bass, piano, rhodes, synth, key bass, organ, and pretty much any other ELECTRONIC sound you hear on the album! haha He's such a talented dude, and I really value his input and MUSICAL INSTINCTS.
another special talent I had the honor of having on my project was Madison Cunningham! Madison has an incredible voice, and just released her new album "authenticity" this year as well! She was kind enough to sing some back up vocals and man.. I love the vibe that it brought to the songs!
i'm Super EXCITED with how everything is sounding, and with the songs as a whole! I'm hoping to get everything mixed down this month or next, and I will update you all as soon as we move on to the next phase! Thank you to every who has encouraged and supported from the start! I can't wait for you to hear what we've done! Thanks again!
