New Year, New Song!!

Jan 3, 2014

Hi Friends!

I know it's going to be a good year when I can finish and release a new song on the very first day! Okay, so I had a little help from last year, but this song did come together rather quickly and it was very fun to record. "All of Those Cell Phones" is a Tom Petty style (sorry Tom) rock tune. It's a little different than what I've written before, meaning, it's not a worship song. The lyrics would sound pretty strange sung by a congregation. It's available or will be available soon anywhere digital music is streamed or sold, but it's only 59 cents on my website or through CD Baby at

The genesis of the song was a blogpost I read where the writer was lamenting the fact that most of us carry with us and use incredible technology every day, yet our bridges and roads are crumbling underneath us. I thought back to the Minneapolis bridge collapse in 2007 and this started the mysterious songwriting process in my brain and soon this song preempted everything else I was working on (sorry Byron). On the surface, the lyrics are straightforward, but they can also be taken as a metaphor for the spiritual state of our world. I hope you enjoy the infectious music and are challenged by the lyrics!

Thanks for listening and have a blessed New Year!!!
