I feel like a hermit returning to civilization, after living in a cave for the last month.
That’s a little dramatic, but realistically I’ve been camped out in my studio since I released Facedown, and I am just now emerging to post an update over here.
I finished way before my deadline.
Black and White is ready for distribution. That’s the next step. I’m now working on album art, videos and promo stuff. All those little details that I need to get done before release day, which will be on Black Friday (11.23.18).
I am excited to be done, even though the process was quite lovely and adventurous. It was also full of new challenges and emotional hurdles to jump over. The process brought growth and I’m thankful for that.
Now, I am typing this to you, while I listen to Classic 80’s Indie Rock and drink my coffee. It feels good to be done. So good.

As an artist, when do you know your masterpiece is complete? One thing I’ve learned this year is that you are only going to be able get better if you FINISH the piece. Be excellent at what you do, give it your all! But that’s all we can do. Our art is only as good as we are in the moment. If we spend months and months polishing something to death, not much will come of it. We get better by finishing. That’s how we grow.
