I am so excited to share this special news with you all! First off, I will be shooting a music video for my song “Chasing The Wind” off of my latest record All Forgotten Things. Secondly, I will be moving to Nashville Tennessee in the month of November of this year.
With social networks turning more and more toward visual media, the ability to grab someone’s attention has become harder and harder. With that being said, recording a music video has been something I’ve desired to do for years. But, alas, I have not had the right opportunity/finances to do so, until now. I was offered to record a high quality video with my good friend Jade Elhers. Jade and his film partner, Wade, have recently worked on video projects for The Rocket Summer, Switchfoot, Go Periscope and others. We start shooting on May 1st in Northern California and the video will be set to release June 4th.
Nashville was never a place I grew up thinking that I’d ever move to. Actually now that I think of it, I don’t think I ever even dreamed of moving away from Northern California. But over the past couple years I’ve spent many days off and visiting Nashville, and slowly the dreams started to work there way in. After 6 months of planning, I’m set to become a Tennesse resident in November of this year! The list of reasons are endless, but to put it briefly I simply am moving for the following reasons: to be challenged by musicians and songwriters far better than me, connect with my good friends in the industry (and hopefully make some new ones). I will be located more central to my touring routes, the living expenses are much cheaper (California is just too darn expensive!), and the list goes on.
As I am preparing for the move, this music video, and my upcoming/current tours, please be keeping me and this ministry in your prayers; Safe travels, provision, and above all, that the gospel is going forward even in the midst of all my short comings and inability’s as man and musician.
Thank you all for your support, love, and simply reading this blog!
