Spring 2013 Update

Well, it's been a while since my last blog update.  I apologize, I've been very busy!  First off, I am very happy to announce that my wife and I are expecting and our baby Daughter Kaylee is due on July 3rd!  We are very excited to be parents!  

As for music stuff, I finished work on Life is Hard's album entitled "Rise Again" on which I played guitar, bass, and mixed many tracks and I also mastered the entire album.  I also got to play a show with Ronnie Coleman for his CD release party for his album "No Turning Back" on which I played guitar on the songs: Funk Face, Peace and Understanding, Forever my Love, and Just Because.  I am as busy as ever teaching and the recitals for my students are fast approaching.  I am very excited for my student bands to perform at the recital on Sunday, April 14 at the Stafford City Civic Center.  

I am making great progress on my next solo album.  It was hard to find time to work on it as busy as I was last year but now it's on the front burner for me!  I have been recording guitar tracks recently and hope to finish tracking before Kaylee arrives in July!  I'm looking to get the album mixed and released in the Fall of this year.  

Also coming very soon is a song I'm very excited about!  Last year I wrote a country/hip hop hybrid line dance song with Courtney Johnson and Rick Jackson entitled "Cowgirl Shuffle."  I also produced, engineered, mixed, mastered, and played guitar and bass on the song.  We shot the video last month and are just about to release the video and single on iTunes this month.  Be on the lookout for "Cowgirl Shuffle" as we hope it will be making a big splash this summer!

I am also very happy to say I am now playing every Sunday with the best Praise Band in the land at the March of Faith Church in Pearland.  Here is a short clip recorded November last year, from the end of a song called "I Know What Prayer Can Do."  Just a small sample of the great music that happens every Sunday at March of Faith while we praise the Lord!!  Shout out to Junie Wallace (drums), Earnest Prince (bass), and Kevin Graves (keys).  You guys are the best!
