Hello from the East Coast! Having a blast on Tour. I hope this note finds you so well! A few things to tell you about today.


With heavy hearts, we ask that you please take a moment to read this blog
post , which honors the life of Sarah Joann Alleman.
Pleased to announce that I have a new song in the upcoming
Paramount/Nickelodeon movie, “Fun Size” which hits theaters Oct. 26th. The song is a bit different for me, it’s
called “Masquerade” and like the movie, it’s a Halloween love story. It was
so fun to write – in fact I’d call it the most lighthearted, fun song I’ve
ever written. It releases on iTunes on Oct. 23rd. The film is a teen comedy
starring Victoria Justice, Directed by Josh Schwartz (Gossip Girl, The OC,
Chuck.) Learn more about the film, here.


Excited to pull the cover off of another one of the “secret projects” I’ve
been working away on this year. Privileged to have contributed to 4 songs on
the upcoming Jon Foreman  (Switchfoot) solo record. The release date has yet to be announced, but I am so
thrilled to have contributed to these gorgeous songs. Read a bit more about the project here.

Thanks for reading!! Hope to see you at one of the remaining Fall Tour dates!


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.
