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!

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
