This project started with a song. A song about Love.
Then after a full year of touring it grew to so much more.
Every story, every lesson, every encounter, every choice live inside of it.

A Vinyl Record! Really?
YES! That's right. A Vinyl record.
While the album will be available on CD and streaming sites,
the focus is to create an amazing Vinyl Record.

Why Independent?
I'm connecting with you all here, because the cost of creating an
album is substantial (Expensive).

The fight to stay independent is real. Being able to create the 
music that feels as Honest and Pure as possible and bring it straight to
you, is something I take very seriously.

All companies we decide and decided to work with, respect our cause
and our choice to stay Independent.

What to Expect?

Songs that have been burning up my head for months!
Melodies that I've been humming non-stop.
Tons of inspiration from spending time with my family, during and after
this year of touring. Plus a few old favorites, I would love to revisit.

Album Artwork Artist: Leanna Wolff 
We are also very honored and excited to plan collaborating with an amazing artist
for the album cover. Leanna is a long-time friend and passionate artist.
We can wait to see what she has planned for the artwork on this project.
