You’re Gonna Be Alright

Though it’s admittedly short notice amidst so much going on in life at the moment, I’m so very excited to announce the release of a project I’ve had in the oven for some time that has finally arrived! Today marks the official release of my new album entitled “You’re Gonna Be Alright” which is now available at most major outlets including Spotify and Apple Music. I can’t possibly thank enough…

Satellite “Turning On My Own” – Video Premiere on Artist Direct

Recently the second of a group of studio performances I shot and edited with my good friends in Satellite premiered on ArtistDirect.com. With so many projects flying about, I’ve been a bit remiss in posting new work, but please check out the performance. It’s just another example of how amazing and expressive this group is. I’m continuing to look towards greater and greater things for them. Check out the article…

Satellite’s “Brooklyn” in Studio Live Video on CMT

I’ve been wanting to have the chance to show this since we shot it last year. My friends in Satellite are currently running full court press in promo for their upcoming “Calling Birds” album coming in March. Last August we jumped into a studio in North Hollywood to live-take a group of songs with five cameras rolling and the booth recording. It was a bit of a run-and-gun affair, but…

Tour Film

Amidst working on a plethora of new projects, I’ve been remiss in scanning some film rolls and polaroids taken over the course of The Daylights’ “No Reverse Tour” with Andy Davis last November and a couple of one-off shows in the SoCal area. Below are a few snapshots from various stops along the way including snowball fights, venomous snakes, tall tale telling new friends, tricked out 1950’s mobile homes, and…

Daylights No Reverse Tour – Chicago

Ever get hold of that last bastion of reserve energy your body has somehow been hiding away despite almost 3 days of little to no sleep and it feels like you’re cruising around in some kind of harness being held up just enough so that your feet still touch the ground? That’s me right about now. Rocking out in the van to Temper Trap while barely being able to keep…

The Daylights & Andy Davis – 2011 No Reverse Tour

Wow… so it’s closing in on November already. 2011 is going by in a blaze… just like every other year. The older I get, the more I realize how quickly the time flies. It’s like the week of summer camp on a grand scale: Monday would always seem to take FOR-EH-VAH and you’d be digging every moment. Then the next morning you’d wake up and have to pack up because…

Needtobreathe on The Tonight Show

Needtobreathe - The Tonight Show

I received a call last week that Needtobreathe was going to be playing a one-off gig for the Tonight Show with Leno and needed a couple extra hands running the show since most of their crew and gear was on the road in Randomsville, America headed to the next spot on the Taylor Swift tour. I admit getting a little excited about it since the last time I’d been to…

OneRepublic @ the Ryman

OneRepublic

Back in March I was asked by OneRepublic’s tour manager to help them shoot a quick video of the encore performance for the first night’s show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Just found that video again during the course of revamping the site and thought I’d share. The group playing with them are called Sons of Sylvia who are apparently are Ryan’s cousins that he had invited to come…

If You’d Have Asked Me 7 Months Ago…

iPhone Photo Map

If you’d have asked me 7 months ago what I’d be doing in 7 months, I probably wouldn’t have been able to call the ball too well. It’s funny, interesting, and a bit unnerving how life can throw you a big curve ball from time to time. Occasionally it ends up being right where you were aiming though and the ball goes screaming down the 3rd base line. Having been…

Daylights Parlotones Tour – New York

New York City

Today we drove into the belly of the beast that is New York City. I don’t think I’ve ever been as simultaneously enamored and stressed out by one place as I am by the small morsel of metropolis that we experienced today. Being a small town fellow at heart, I’ve always been a bit overwhelmed by exceptionally large crowds of people all in a hurry going no place in particular….
