August has been great so far and it’s been a joy connecting with our fans on the road this month. This past weekend we spent three days in Ohio at Helping Hands Midwest. We put on a concert, talked with families, and also gave some guitar tips to budding guitarists (as pictured above). Thank you to The Lucky Fin Project for making our involvement possible!
This coming weekend (August 10th, 2014) we’ll be speaking and playing at Destination Church in Waycross Georgia (www.destination-church.org). All are welcome!
“I Know We’ll Get There” was written during the VH1 and Republic Records “You Oughta Know” Make a Band Famous competition. After being narrowed down to the Top 8 bands in the New York City rounds, the contestants were challenged to write a new original song about “fame.”
Lesleigh and I had a matter of hours to write together overnight. We were in a room with the 7 other bands, overlooking New York Harbor, and the Statue of Liberty. The challenge really tested us, but we are very proud of the end result.
This song helped carry us all the way to 4th place, and we are especially moved by the HUGE outreach from our fanbase. Thank you for supporting us along the way. This one’s all for you!
NEW MUSIC RELEASED TODAY! I was asked to compose the music for a new children’s play that debuted in April! My friend (author) Candida Sullivan has written a great series of books for kids and families about a zebra named Zippy… an adaptation of her newest story “Zippy’s Club” brought the characters to life on stage.
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO to see a slideshow of photos from the preparation and performance of the play. “The Best That You Can Be” is now available on iTUNES!
I’m very excited to announce that out of 2,700 entries, I have landed a spot in the top 60! I specifically NEVER ask my fans to vote for me, just in case a big opportunity comes along where we truly need the help…. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES!
I’m headed to Florida this weekend to play music and speak with the awesome kids and families in the wonderful Hands 2 Love & Lucky Fin Project organizations. You can keep up with my travels and adventures via Facebook and Twitter! Thanks guys!
