Earlier this year I posted about producing an album called "FIVE" with a group in Rochester, Minnesota called Lift Worship. We just wrapped up this EP and it was a blast to work on!
Lift Worship is based out of a local church in Rochester, Minnesota and the team is primarily made up of volunteers. It was an honor to work with these volunteers as we wrote parts together!
My role with this project was song form and arrangement, creating sounds, playing guitars live, and musically directing the band. The project was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jason Gerdt & Brent Thomas.
The album released Christmas Day 2016 and you can stream it below via embedded Spotify playlist!
Hey! I'll keep this post brief, but I have always had a dream of writing, recording, and releasing my own music and now I'm closer than ever! I created this GoFundMe page for those that feel inclined to help me make my dream come true!
There's absolutely NO pressure for you to contribute, but I have much more information on the GoFundMe page linked to this message! I simply wanted to create a place for those that were interested in helping me fulfill this project to do so!
If you have any questions please let me know! Thanks so much!
I am stoked to announce I've just reached an agreement with an amazing music licensing website called Songfreedom to sell licenses to my catalog for artistic & creative uses. Songfreedom exists to provide high quality music to videographers, directors, and more for their creative projects.
On October 2nd, Lift Worship, based out of Harvest Bible Chapel Rochester, is recording a 5-song live album! These tunes were written by Brent Thomas and the Lift Worship team and they asked me to come on board and help out with the project. It's been a blast to work with the group so far.
We just got done with one of our days engrossed in Ableton creating the coolest of sounds. Stay tuned to hear more about this record - it will be releasing Christmas Day 2016!

My good friend Jesse Mags recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in music. It's been awesome to see his progression as a musician over the last 8 years I've known him and I can confidently say that this dude is freaking talented. He goes by the moniker Yishay.
He just released his first mixtape titled Trinity Tapes I.
Check out his music and if you dig it, give a few bucks. Let's be real - you're saving hundreds with your Spotify subscription so the least you can do is spare some cash for the striving musician.
Two of my best friends, Cameron and Trevor Bartlett, along with the talented Erik Moody, make up a band called Author. They make beautiful music paired with real lyricism - struggles, problems, emotions - things you can relate with.
They recently released a full length titled Of Brighter Days and are set to release their next full length this fall.

I am so excited to announce that the most recent project I've been working on titled ADVANCE with the worship group Breathe is OUT NOW! It is available on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube (Google Play and Amazon within the next few weeks), and you can stream it/download it for "pay what you want" at this link here or below in the embedded Bandcamp player.
It's been such a joy and honor to lead the Breathe team in this project and I can't wait to make more records!
The Breathe album, titled "ADVANCE" will be releasing April 25th. Can't wait to share these tunes.
Over the past two years I have had the joy of leading worship with this team of students every Monday at Breathe - a gathering designed for college students to meet with and worship God. After traveling around with this team and leading worship, growing together in our skills, and exploring the world of songwriting and spontaneity, we felt our next step was to capture the songs God was giving us.
We are deep into the recording process now and expect digital and physical copies of the 5 song all-original album to be available in late April 2016. Our good friend Zach Foty is engineering and producing the record and it is being mastered by Dale Becker Mastering.
Perks are still available from our Indiegogo fundraising campaign if you are interested in supporting this project. If so, click here.
