Small Victories is out now on Spartan Records
June 30, 2017
My first album comes out today. It's called "Small Victories" and it's out on Spartan Records. I'm really proud of it and I hope you will be, too. There was a time that I didn't think this record would ever see the light of day. Thanks for sticking with me, friends. I can't really put in to words what your support has meant to me over the years.
I'll be playing a few shows in support of the new album with more dates to follow in the fall. I can't wait! I hope you can make it to this first little run.
July 20 @ The Loft in Lansing, MI
July 21 @ Fischer Hall in Frankenmuth, MI
July 22 @ Unruly Brewing in Muskegon, MI
July 25 @ The Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, MI
I want to send a huge thanks to John from Spartan Records for believing in me and for believing in this record. I also want to thank Aaron McCall for the art direction, Joe Matteson for the photography, Alex Mixter for the videography, John Howe for the animated videography, and Mike Cubillos for working that PR. Thanks to Mark Michalik for mixing it and thanks to Levi Seitz for the mastering. Thanks to Loren Wells, Nate Dorough, and Matt Tunney.
Thanks to my wife, family, and friends for keeping me alive during this process. Huge thanks to Mike and Rachel White. If it wasn't for them, this album wouldn't have been a possibility.
Thank you, too. Truly.
