Twelve Stories OUT NOW!!

Twelve Stories is finally here.  It's been just under a year since I launched the Kickstarter campaign for my first full-length album, and today it's officially out.  Even the newest of these songs is a year old at this point, and I have been itching for you all to hear them.  I feel like a great weight has been lifted, replaced with the nervous energy I get right before I walk on stage.  I suppose it's sort of the same thing.  My album is available to the world for the first time, and just like when I'm about to play a show, I'm a little nervous about winning over the audience.

This album is a collection of things both old and new.  There are old songs, new songs, old friends, and people I've always wanted to work with that all came together to make this happen.  Every single person involved brought their own experience and style toTwelve Stories and this confluence makes it really special.  I'm going to put the album credits on my website, so please head over there and check them out.  There are lots of special guests, including some Foo Fighters.

This album has been waiting to come out since I started writing songs at fifteen.  I could write about it for hours, but at this point I think I'm just going to let you create your own experience with it; now that it's out there, mine is secondary.  I hope you get a chance to listen to Twelve Stories and find out what it means to you.

Get it at the store here!
