Cold Days in Nashville… hi to all!

Hi & hello!

This is the first message / blast I’ve sent out since the holidays — so, a happy post New Year to you all!
And, I know I’m not the only one trying to keep warm and dreaming of sunny spring times these days… sigh, I’m ready for the melting to begin! Let’s just say we’ve been making lots of serious slow-cooker stews and warm late night beverages here at our little abode to relieve the snap of cold…

However, amid the cold & ice there have been exciting things happening with music in the world of film & television:

If any of you caught the episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” last night, I hope you enjoyed the moment of “Fresh Pair of Eyes” that played a small ‘role’ in the show. Very stoked about it! For anyone interested in purchasing the song, you can head to iTunes and pick up a ‘winter bundle’ I’ve issued containing 2 songs (“Fresh Pair of Eyes” & “Heal for the Honey” as well as the live video version of “Go Easy Little Doves“) all for the LOW price of $2.99!

It’s also been a busy couple of weeks over at ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” — thanks to the show for using a bunch of my songs the last few episodes. Always fun to be apart of the show!

Speaking of PLL, the show has just released a soundtrack from the first season’s episodes. “Fresh Pair of Eyes” is included among this stellar line up of musicians and bands. I believe you can pick one up at any major cd retailer (or digital outlet, of course).

And last, but definitely not least, I’ve got a few festivals now on the books – I’ll be playing MacRock in West Virginia this April and Cornerstone Festival in Marietta, IL this summer… Can’t wait to see you all!

Take care and bundle up!!!


Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.

Trapped in Limbo

Black metal may not be the first thing on your mind when you think of Portugal, but GAEREA is here to change that. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt sat down with GAEREA to discuss the band’s music, their mysterious name and image, and how office work can be art.
