Get the new CD, "The Third Time" HERE

WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

An open letter to other LDS bloggers:

About four years ago, I did some major shifts in my recording studio. Up until that time, I had a relatively functional analog setup running a Fostex 16-track deck sync’ed up to a computer running my synthesizers and drum machines. It worked well enough.

I was also seeing that I needed, for my own benefit, to notch it all up. I needed to become a better producer. As a part of that, I got a new computer, sold off much of my analog gear (even gave away some of my toys, including my Proteus), and bought Cubase. I’ve never looked back.

I decided that I would take the time with each song to make it ready for the world, instead of just being demo-quality.

And I would produce a CD.

Now, after those years, the dream of that focus is about to become reality! And I’m sooo psyched. I’ve finished all of the songs, we’re working on the design, and I’m making arrangements for the printing, pressing, and publication.

My ideas of LDS rock music have evolved over the years. I’ve been writing songs since high-school, but since I returned from my mission, I’ve focused more tightly on rock for an LDS audience. Over the years, I’ve written probably a little under a hundred songs. I’ve demo’ed or recorded about 40 or 50 of them. 11 will go on the first CD, to be called “One United Generation”.

· Here in Me
· He’s Out There
· The Taker
· Thank You
· Toy Soldiers
· What’ll Save Ya
· Millstones
· Out of the Chapel
· The First Step
· Pharisee
· One United Generation

My first batch of CD’s should be done by the end of February. I know that many of you that read this blog are bloggers as well, and I’d love to enlist you folks in spreading the word. If you’re reading this, and you’re a blogger, please go to: Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the email form there, and tell me your mailing address. Alternately, you can just use the email link below. I’ll send you a free copy of the CD.

It’s also my way of thanking you all for letting me into your lives via your blogs. You’ve all made me think and feel, and I appreciate that.
