YEARBOOK POLL

There will be lots of shows/touring this year, which I am truly excited about! Part of the fun of playing shows is deciding on which songs I want to play… Now that my “Yearbook” project is complete, I cant wait to bring these new songs along on tour! 36 new songs is a lot to choose from, so I’d like to invite you to vote on which songs you enjoyed most from “Yearbook.” I created a poll and would love to hear from you, as I’m working on which songs will be a part of my upcoming set lists.

Click here, to vote!!

BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 DVD/BLU-RAY

Excited that the Twilight Breaking Dawn – Part 1 DVD/Blu-Ray will be released on February 11th! Right in time for Valentine’s Day, of course. Vampires and romance, oh my. Was such a privilege to be a part of this film… and as a fan of Blu-Rays in general, I couldn’t be more excited to have my music be on a Blu-Ray release for the first time! Cool! Neat! (Dork.)

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.
