The Blog Post That Won’t Die

There is this blog post that I wrote a couple years ago making its way around the internet again the last few days.  It's a spicy little rant that I wrote on a plane as I was coming home from a long "Christian music" tour, and I was tired, cranky and sick of the copious loads of b.s. that I had continually encountered in the religious circles that I found myself in. The blog post was angry.  It wasn't all that articulate or even very well thought through, but it did call a spade and some pe...

Wandering – About The Song

Tour Update

We're on the bus right now heading towards Boston as we finish up our first week of touring this new album.  It's been quite a hectic month getting ready for this tour!  We did nearly a month of rehearsals/production rehearsals and this music has not been easy to pull of live as a four piece band...  But I think we are starting to get the hang of it after the first week of touring. One of the interesting things about this tour is that our music is pretty different than it ever has been bef...
