New Music Coming Soon

Hi friends!
Soon I'll be releasing a very special new song called "People Live On," 
an answer to a challenge from my mom to compose "a song for the world”. 

I decided to pull in an all-star group of musical talent to help me bring this song to life. Collectively, they hold multiple Grammy wins and nominations, and have worked with an incredible  roster of legendary recording artists and bands throughout their impressive careers. 

For me, this song was something special from the start. While house-sitting at my brother's house, the chorus just came to me. With help on the lyrics from my dad on the second verse, the song seemed to write itself.

My approach was to write a classic that sounded like it had always been there, but just finally getting noticed. I wrapped theme after theme upon themes in a kaleidoscope of melodies and timeless evergreen conceptual lyrics for all ages, races, and creeds.

Check out my music page to learn  about the song, who recorded it with me, and the whole team that is helping me bring this special song into the world. 

Thanks for coming along on this journey with me. Lastly, please sign up for my newsletter on this page to hear the latest happenings. All the best!
