2012 Songwriter of the Year

I received some exciting and humbling news this week. Based on Made for More, the single release from our EP, I was named 2012 CCM Network International/ Songwriter of the Year! I entered the song in their songwriting contest late last year and it was chosen from songs entered from all around the world. I was chosen by Jeff Quimby, who is a heavy hitter in the Christian music industry, since his days of A&R at Integrity Music working with people like Lincoln Brewster and Kari Jobe.

So what does that mean? Well, being called Songwriter of the Year is pretty cool. In addition to that, I won some cash, a 1 song recording engineered and produced by Jeff Quimby at his studio in Mobile, Alabama, and a radio promotions package for a song of my choice. When it comes time, I believe we can get Made for More out there by calling local stations and asking them to play it…but I’ll update more about that as time goes on.

So thanks to Jeff McLaughlin at MMGI and CCMNI, Jeff Quimby, and all of you for continued support.

Glory to God!

Love is Enough

Happy Valentine’s Day friends! To show some love to you, here’s a free song I recorded for and with my wife called “Love is Enough”. Hopefully it helps us remember that through the ups and downs of life, Christ is enough. Enjoy!

Play it Forward

So today my friend Carlos Whittaker posted on his blog, a musical experiment with my new project. The idea came from just brainstorming about ways indie artists could get their music out to more people. On release day, the EP got up to #28 on the iTunes chart…likely mostly supported by people that are connected with me in some way. So how can an artist like me get music out to more people? Getting people to “play it forward”. Go HERE to see how you can get involved in this indie revolution.
