Nashville – A World of Creativity

Saturday - July 07, 2012

I moved to Nashville 3 years ago and am honored to call this place home. After all this time, I’m still amazed at how many individuals that I meet who are involved in music in one way or another. From layers to mechanics, project managers to hair stylists, you may never know who you’ve met had written the latest hit, recorded on a legendary album or toured with a famed celebrity!

The greatest thing about several of those people is their their humility. They do it for the love of music. I’m not saying there are those who need their egos stroked! But to have met so many of these talented musicians and songwriters has been great!

Pride

Monday - June 06, 2012

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you.”
–C.S. Lewis


Within the arms of a trusted lover, there is no safer place. You find strength and trust, and feel like you want for nothing more. There you are unshaken. But when someone can’t let go of a self-serving form of pride, everyone around them suffers. Their need to be seen as in control of their lives doesn’t make them stronger. It makes them frail and weak to the core of their existence. Most of the time, they can’t even see what they are doing to those around them.

Often people misquote a proverb regarding pride. They say “Pride comes before the fall.” The proverb actually said, “Pride comes before the destruction.”


Never stop loving humility.

The Greatest of These

Friday - May 05, 2012

It’s been said by a wise man that we should live in faith, hope and love. And of those 3 most noble attributes, he said that love is the greatest of them.

 

I’ve always been fascinated by how we all have different perceptions of love. History is full of books that teach on the virtues and characteristics of love (and no doubt centuries from now the books will keep coming). Some contend it’s a commitment, a lifetime devotion. Others believe it’s a feeling, igniting the deepest parts of us. I think relationships involves both. In the most difficult of times, a sense of commitment is desperately needed. In the best of times, feelings of excitement and euphoria know no limit. And then there’s everything else (good & bad) in between.

 

 

My first full-length project, Her, explores some of my own experiences, most of which are probably not much different from any one else. I hope you enjoy my project that truly took a lifetime to live out.

 

A special thanks to Jane Snyder for those early conversations over coffee about this project and for her suggestion of the album title.
