I’m so excited to announce that starting early July local Raleigh, NC music and art venue Imurj will begin selling Heartbeat CDs! Imurj is located in downtown Raleigh, NC just a short walk from Red Hat Amphitheater. They host a ton a music and art events and even have an internet radio where you can listen to the entire album. Check them out and stay tuned for more announcements around this venue.

Two songs from Heartbeat on the charts!

Massive thanks to New Visions Radio, Radio Indie Alliance, and all the fans for supporting my song “Light It Up”! We’ve been in the top 10 charts for over a month and have now hit 3 weeks in a row at #1!

Can’t Let You Go” hits the PLAYMPE Adult Contemporary streaming and download charts two weeks in a row, topping at #8 and #6 respectively! This is actually quite a major accomplishment due to the fact that most of the major record labels use this service as well.

New single release - Heartbeat

I'm happy to share with you the release of Heartbeat, the follow-on single to last summer’s hit Captain America and the 2nd and title track off my upcoming album.

Co-written with my Producer, Kevin McNoldy, Heartbeat takes a very different approach, yet continues the story line introduced with Captain America around the continuous 24-hour-a-day turmoil surrounding our political landscape and the multiple harassment and sexual misconduct stories and how there is never an opportunity to come up for air before another international “embarrassment" occurs.

Despite its negative viewpoint, the song does have a hopeful message, as sung in the bridge: “I’ve got to fight through the fear, things are not how they appear, I’ve got the truth on my side. You are not winning the war, ‘cause I can take this and more, and I will make this right again.” So, although each day has us dealing with more bad news, lies, manipulations, and distortions, there will always be hope, and love will always win.

You'll also hear how my alternative obsession has started to make it's way into my songwriting and production, which really, was just a matter of time. I do have to admit that I was a little worried about this song. It's probably the most open I've been about my political views and frankly I wasn't sure how people would accept the style or genre. I guess only time will really tell, but for now, I can say this is me, this is who I am, and get ready for more!
