A month and a half ago I wrote an update about my voice, detailing some of the problems that have kept me from recording a lot of new music, playing shows, and doing more in general. The amount of encouragement and support I received from that one post was unreal. Your love lifted me, and I’m gaining hope each day as I move toward surgery and ultimately recovery.
I’ve continued writing through all of this, and I even put some of the songs to tape when I was feeling up to it. I felt so encouraged by your love and support that I decided to share some of the songs I recorded on my own this year. These tunes represent where I've been, and the tension I feel not knowing what's ahead. I’ll be releasing the first song, “Everything About This Feels Temporary” on December 31, 2017. When I wrote the line that would become the title for that song, it felt heavy. At first it was just for me, but then I realized that it might also mean something to so many others who have had a tough year. While I didn’t have the opportunity to add to the chorus of Christmas songs this year, “Everything About This Feels Temporary” is my advent cry. I’m excited for you to hear it.
