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!!!



Seaway's Big Fall

Planned for the summer, 'Big Vibe' was moved to the Fall as COVID swept the nation. It turns out, the vibes were exactly the breath of fresh air we needed. HM contributing writer Danielle Martin talks with Seaway vocalist Ryan Locke about the band's new era, how they formed their sound for 2020, and why Harry Styles belongs in their lives.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
