Turn the page, the chapter is ending…

¬†Hey. It’s a new year. Wanna do something new? Me too… This month, I’m going to be parting ways with F-Stop/Atlantic Records and trying my hand at being an independent artist. (gulp) Striking out on my own is a little frightening, for sure, BUT it’s also pretty exciting and freeing. No label. Nobody looking over my shoulder. No expectations. I’ll be able to try new things and be creative in ways that I wasn’t able to before. I’ll be able to release new music whenever I want and work with fans (you?) to give you more of what you want. Sound good? Good.

I want to make this year (and hopefully lots of the years after this one) about you. I know I haven’t always been good at releasing a lot of new music… My bad… I think that’s gonna change. In 2014, my goal is to write my ass off, record my ass off, tour my ass off, and interact my ass off. My ass will be off… for you.

The wheels are turning, and several parts of this plan have already started moving along. TOMORROW, I’m taking some of my new songs into Emissary Studio in Orlando, FL and making sweet, sweet music. Instead of having to wait 6-12 months (or longer) after recording these songs to get them into your ears, I’m going to do it as fast as I possibly can. Seriously, as fast I possibly can. Because I can do whatever I want.

Know what else I want to do? I want to play some shows for you fine people in your own fine cities. I think I’ll do that. How does Spring sound? Sounds good to me.

Hope you’re starting to get the picture. My goal is to release a lot more music this year, maybe do some Google hangouts, maybe put out some new merch, maybe a lot of things. Have any ideas? Let me know. I like ideas. I like you. See you soon.
