4. Not Sure Yet
Here we are at the outskirts of the “Forests” – only a few days away from the official release May 7 and the exclusive release on Brite Revolution May 6. We’re so close, just peering into the pit of the wood, in wonder of what could unfold in this ethereal timberland.
In all of it’s mysterious majesty, I can’t help but look back in the clearing and recall the greatness that inspired these roots…
Taking my songs, and molding and nurturing them into fruition - building an incredible team of people, led by my producer Taylor Bray who would challenge and nourish my craft (behind every good artist is a great producer) - mapping out sounds and instruments that would become the homes these songs could best live in - developing a serious love-hate relationship with a metronome – rehearsing the art of performing, performing the art of rehearsing - brainstorming dark and light album names with friends (Dusk+Dawn, Sun+Moon, Twilight+Daybreak) - laughing in excitement about Kickstarter ideas, and crying amid it’s success – studio dinners and hangs – post-tracking drinks with players and dear friends – crying in the vocal booth because these songs bear my heart and soul – sleeping between vocal takes – pouring all that I have into this dream.
We’ve danced in the “Fields,” and now I’m inviting you to enter with me into the “Forests”.
In this place - in the pit of the pine, there’s a chill of quiet desperation, and yet the sun is peeking through the trees, dappling the shadows that cover their silhouettes. It smells crisp, fresh. The breeze tickles and taunts. There’s something magical about this place.
Initially, I came here after a season of unmatched joy and pure freedom and into one of heartbreak and loneliness – but I’ve learned to master the solitude that confines me, and in it, I’ve found community and inspiration in you. Thank you for walking into the Forest with me and for being my comrades on the path yet to come – wherever it leads next.
To my loving parents and family for their great support of my dream. Special thanks to my dear father especially, for his continued guidance and provision. To my incredible producer Taylor Bray, for his genius and collaboration on these songs and all of my career endeavors thus far. To my wonderful Kickstarter backers: This would not be possible without your help - I hope you enjoy the sister to "Fields"! To my fantastic publicist Brannon Desseyn of Starboard Music for believing in me. To Paul Moak at Smoakstack Studios, to Juanita at The Sound Emporium, to Jeff Braun, Dewey Boyd, Henry Reed, Jimmy Sudekum, my designer Sarah Helen Parker of Villa House Pictures, my album photographer Andrea Behrends and studio photographer Ashtin Paige. To all the musicians, to my film producer Henry Reed, the album teaser and Kickstarter video crew, and everyone else that has or will enjoy my music. Thank you.

People, you are amazing!
Thanks for the support - we're almost to six!
Let's keep spreading the word about "FIELDS"!
(Special celebratory treats coming soon,
the closer we get :)
Don't want to give away too much here,
but we are shooting a music video for
"Love Me Now"
(psst! The video release date may or may not
have something to do with the "FORESTS" Countdown!)

Thanks to all of you who have purchased the "FIELDS" EP,
we're a little more than halfway to 1,000 copies sold -
Which means we're halfway to the "FORESTS" EP being released!
...AND I've planned special surprises
for our milestones in this journey!
Let's keep spreading "FIELDS."
"FIELDS" - a light, airy compilation, is my debut record,
and I've got a darker record called "FORESTS" waiting in the wings.
It will be released as soon as I sell 1,000 copies of "FIELDS"!

When will FIELDS' sister EP, FORESTS be released, you ask??
It's up to the world.
Once we sell 1,000 copies of FIELDS, we will release FORESTS.
I am currently counting the number of FIELDS copies sold -
So stay tuned here to count down to FORESTS with me!
