NEW SONG: “Ghost Is Gone”. Easily the most heartfelt and poetic song I’ve written. If you like it, share it. Thanks everyone.

Behind the scenes for an upcoming promo video for my next mixtape.
Huge shout out to Aaron Mull (@BreakingGBK) for collaborating with me on this one.
I entered a contest that is being put on by Cerv’s, a convenience store chain in Kansas. Hoping to win with this short jingle/video.
Haha :) I love icees.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
- Marianne Williamson
A sneak peak of what’s to come.
I was bored tonight so I decided to cover one of my all time favorite songs, “Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman.
My cover doesn’t do the original justice, and it’s quite pitchy, but I don’t care. It’s just so fun to play.
Hope you enjoy!
What’s up people?! Quick update on my life and my music.
My life: Just last month, I moved to Manhattan, KS to attend Kansas State University. I love the town and I think the bigger “college town” vibe will be great for me, music wise. A bigger audience will help immensely with promotion and finding new fans. I just recently got all the new recording equipment I need to create a really solid sounding mixtape. I’ve invested a decent amount of money, so this next tape will sound much, much better than Makin Moves did, sound quality wise.
My music: Though I haven’t recorded much besides “Selfish” and “Pretty Soon”, I’ve been writing, writing, writing. My songwriting abilities improve every day and I love seeing my lyrics advancing. I have over 10 songs written, the instrumentals leased, and all I have left to do is record. Recording is a very tedious process for me, due to the fact I’m a perfectionist, and also, school takes up a lot of my time. But I’ll get it done as quickly as I can.
As of now, this next mixtape will have 12-13 songs on it. It’ll have plenty of hip-hop, some R&B, and of course an original acoustic song or two as well. Possibly some spoken-word, also. It’s a lot different than Makin Moves in many ways: quality, content, depth, length, and lyrical ability.
To sum it up: It’s better. And if you’re currently a fan of my music, it won’t let you down.
I plan on going all out as far as physical CDs this time, handing out hundreds on campus and in other cities, and trying to get some copies in a few local stores as well.
I already have a mixtape title and album cover picked out. I’ll release those details on a later date, but let’s just say I’m really happy with both.
Stay tuned. Don’t give up on me.
Like I Love You

I love this song. I hope you do too.
