Truth be told......
No tricks or faking...nearly all of these video clips are the actual recorded performances that we used on the CD. Thanks so much to everyone involved in recording this project and thanks to everyone that supports what I'm doing and music in general!
Letting Go - A Personal Mission Statement: "In the beginning of 2011, I felt something deeply calling me to finally get to work on my first solo project. Following the carpe diem lifestyle that I've recently been living, I went for it. A dear friend once told me "an artist should make each record as if it's the last one they'll ever make." My response was, "I want to make records that I'd love to listen to ... records that I'm proud of for the rest of my life". I had that conversation running in mind through every step of this project, and I see now it was that late night ramble between friends that defined the kind of recording "Letting Go" would be. Recently, I reached what I think is the most important milestone in my career. I have spent too much time second-guessing myself ... am I ready as a writer? Player? Singer? Producer? Enough! I figured out, "I respond to music that is honest and heartfelt!" So, here I am for the first time in my career deciding to completely trust my gut and record what I love ... and what I believe in. While I can't wait to let the world hear this project, in so many ways Letting Go is for me. This record is the result of me finding myself as an artist, and for the first time being completely comfortable in my own skin. It finally happened when I took all the fear and anxiety I carried around for so long ... and let it go."
