New Website.

If you are here, you haven't heard about my new website. I will be posting my blogs on there from now on. Blogspot has done me well but I have found this new website is easier to find and to use. You can click here to get there or put the address below in your web browser.





I'm back in Cali for a couple of weeks waiting for Soundcheck to call me. Once they do I'm packing my GTi as full as I can get it and taking a roadtrip back to the promised land.

What a trip that was though. Matt and Jonas were so great to me and so hospitable. Good guys. I pretty much loved everything about being out there and as far as being back here, well, you can guess how I feel about that.

When you are in Nashville, you are surrounded by music and it is really easy to stay focused but out here it is a little harder.

I'm going to enjoy my time with my family and be patent once again for this next "strike in the ground" to be over. (Thanks Matt)


last night

Last night was pretty amazing.

I got to see Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jack Ingram, Faith Hill, Josh Turner and, best of all, Keith Urban from backstage. We did the back-line for Miranda and Jack and a few things for Faith like keyboards so I had to do some work, but I had plenty of time to sit and watch as well. I purposefully went over to the other side of the stage where Keith came out just so I could stand next to him...:) Lame, I know, but since being here I have met and been around more famous people than all of my whole life and I have to say, I only felt star-struck around Keith.
His show did not disappoint either. I have seen him five times and he gets better with every show. He is so talented that it makes me want to give up music all together sometimes. Haha.
Anyways, after getting paid for being there and having Keith end up behind me in his Bentley on the way home, I thought it was a pretty cool night.

More about Soundcheck.
As I mentioned before, I did get the job at Soundcheck but they won't need me back for a month or two so I will have time to come home and hang out with family and friends before I have to come back.
Honestly though, I really don't want to leave. Just being here has reaffirmed the fact that this is where I need to be. Looking back, seeing how God orchestrated the events in my life so that I could pursue this right it is very evident that I need to be here. I have met so many people already and have been so inspired with my music that I want to get to work immediately. Once again, however, I must be patient with God and his timing and if I have to wait another month to be here, I will.

Here are a few pics from the night.
The one on the bottom is of some of the folks that I work with.

My Friend Matt

This is my friend Matt Price.
We got to know each other a little bit while at Cal Baptist, especially the summer of 2006 when we lived next door to each other in UP.
If it wasn't for Matt I wouldn't be here. He practically got me this gig at Soundcheck. He has made sure I feel at home by welcoming me at his apartment. We have done something fun every night, including going to his parents house for dinner which was amazing. We also went to a show on Sunday night, Andy Davis...He was really good, you should check him out. Tonight we played basketball at Mark Miller's farm with some other of Matt's friends.
I can't thank God enough for putting this great man and friend in my life and it has been a pleasure getting to know him better. It helps to know that we are both going through some of the same things right now and we can relate to each other. Knowing that I have such a great fiend out here when I move is really comforting.
