I’ve added an excerpt from a string quartet I’ve been working on to the Comp 2012 page. It’s fast and rockin’–check it out!

Curious about what I’ve been up to in my private composition lessons this year? I’ve added a new page where I’ll periodically post pieces that I’ve been writing–and the first one is now up! It’s brilliantly titled “Piano 1″ and you can find it over on the new Comp 2012 page. Check it out!
I’ve uploaded a recording of the liturgical Agnus Dei that I wrote for my church, Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach. Check it out!
The Songs From My Shelf presale has begun! You can choose from a digital download only package, a digital download plus a physical CD, or the “deluxe package” which includes the download, a signed CD, exclusive videos and chord charts. And if you order the CD or the deluxe package between now and December 4th, you can save $2.00 off the full purchase price! Head on over to the Store page and check it out!
The Songs From My Shelf Sampler is now available on the Store page! You can download three of the songs from the upcoming album just by providing your email address and zip code. And best of all, you can take the widget and put it on your own blog or Facebook page and spread the word! So head on over to the Store page, download “Who I Am,” “Secret Garden” and “Flame” for free, and let me know what you think!
So, in the meantime, what can you do? Obviously you can put these three dates on your calendar, so you’ll be sure not to miss any chances to hear the music as it comes out. But you can also spread the word–tell your friends, get the NoiseTrade widget on November 6th, and let everybody know that a great new CD is coming soon. In this brave new world of direct-to-fan marketing, word of mouth is the most invaluable tool there is. So tell your family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, strangers and mortal enemies–and I’ll see you on December 4th!
The recent recording of my newest concert music piece, Casa de los Peregrinos, commissioned by Howard and Roberta Ahmanson, has been posted on that piece’s page. Go take a listen!
I’ve also scheduled another Paradise Perks show the last Saturday in August; details can be found on the Live page.
I am sad to announce that I was laid off from my day job yesterday, effective immediately. Unfortunately, my day job was what supported my music, and therefore since I’m going to have to devote my time to looking for a new job, the release of Songs From My Shelf and the party that comes with it will now be delayed. I don’t want to say “delayed indefinitely,” because that sounds like a long time and I hope to still be able to finish the CD by summer’s end; but I can’t make any promises. I hope you’ll still continue to support my music and follow my updates–I will be sure to keep you posted as to when and where the CD will eventually be coming out–and in the meantime my wife and I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers that I would find a new job soon. Thanks so much!
I’ve added two more songs you can download for free! On the Music page, I’ve added a new page for Redeemer Hymns of the Month. Last August, I was asked to become one of the worship leaders for my church, Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, and one of the responsibilities I’ve taken over recently is making recordings of our hymns of the month. Every month the pastor and I choose a hymn to teach the congregation, I do a recording of it, and we sing it each Sunday of the month. I’ve done two so far, and both of them are available to listen to (with posted lyrics) and also to download for free! Check out the Redeemer page to get your free downloads. And remember, “Paradoxology” is also still available to download in the post below this one!
I’ve also added a new live show–I’ll be playing guitar with Box of Chocolates again on Saturday, February 27th. We’ll be doing two sets of rocking cover songs and you won’t want to miss it. Head over to the Live page for the details!
Merry Christmas, everyone! My new single “Paradoxology” is now available to download for free!
If you enjoy the song, please tell your friends, spread the word and share the music! And if you’d like to sign up to receive updates about my music, including updates on the progress of my full-length album Songs From My Shelf, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to my email list. Thanks for listening!
