Story behind the song: "Why's It Gotta Be This Way?"


True confession... I've been crying a lot lately. 


I won't get in to the details, at least not right now, but just prepare yourselves for some REALLY GOOD SONGS to come out of this time!  :-) 


And while I look forward to those happier moments on 'the other side' of this mountain, the truth is, I am in a hard season right now.  And I'm not being dramatic when I say, I have sat on the floor of my closet, in the dark, tears streaming down my face more times than I'd like to admit. 


These words, "Why? Why? WHY???"  have come tumbling out of my mouth.  "I didn't want this!"  I have sobbed.  And the question rises from the deepest place in my heart, "Why does it have to be this way?".  

3 New Songs Released



I was only planning on releasing one at a time, but I was wrestling with which song I should share with you next and it was seriously stressing me out!  I had worked myself up into a tizzy thinking the next song had to be EVERYTHING.  It had to be the “hook” that gets you to come back for more.  It had to ‘different enough’ so you don’t think I’m a one trick pony.  And it had to be ‘enough of the same’ so you don’t think I’m schizophrenic in my musical styles.  But I don’t have one song that will encompass all that.  And that thought was creatively paralyzing me.


...Until I realized these songs are not a “flash in the pan” or the “latest & greatest” kind of pop tunes.  They are singer-songwriter-ey songs.  They are slow and deep and meaningful.   And if you like that, you’re gonna like them!

Story behind the song: "Don't"



Have you ever wanted something so much that you can't even talk about it because it starts stirring up feelings in you?  Feelings that won't be 'put back to sleep' easily if you wake them up?  I'm talking about wanting something, or someone, so much that when it looks like it's not going to happen, when it's falling apart, when its breaking down, you go through a season of soul-searching depression and you start to question everything about your purpose and meaning in life?  Have you ever felt that way? 


Yeah, that's where this song came from. 

Story behind the song: "Sinking"



“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”

I’m calling bullshit on that one.


Question: Has anyone ever said something to you that affected you or wounded you so deeply that you’ve never been able to forget it or fully recover from it?   I’m talking about a comment, or insult, or statement/observation that felt like a dagger in your tender heart?  At the initial moment of trauma, you were so ‘emotionally flooded’, you didn’t even know how to respond.  But now, months, years or even decades later… you can replay that scene, and hear those words, and it feels like it happened yesterday.


That is what the song “Sinking” is about.  Those moments.  Those words.

Story behind the song: "Parable"


In the hands of a great storyteller, even the most mundane experiences and the most minuscule details can somehow be transformed into an epic drama that can leave you laughing, or crying, or pondering the meaning of your existence.

Story behind the song: "Can't Feel You Anymore"



Warning... this is a painful song to write about and I can imagine it will be a painful song for you to listen to or read about.  

Brand new look!
