Coming soon to a couch near you! We’ve been booking some intimate home shows in the Portland area this summer and are looking for some more homes to invade. So if you would like to host an Acoustic Living Room Concert please let us know!
Here are some quick links to various retailers where you can purchase either a downloadable MP3 copy of this album or in some cases a physical CD with lyric booklet.
If “You And Me” by Lifehouse collided with a Howie Day song you would get this rocking new love song single that I wrote for my wife as a 1st Anniversary gift.
Once again I teamed up with producer/musician extraordinaire, Nick Garrett-Powell and delivered a new anthemic love song. “Stop The Sun” is the new single from the highly anticipated CD, “White”, due out in 2013. I wrote this song shortly before Christmas 2009 as a 1st Anniversary present for my wife, Jessica. Nick & I recorded the song on December 23rd and Nick added some synthesized drums and other parts to get the song ready in a single day to be given as a surprise to my wife on Christmas Eve, 2009. Since that time live drums, harmonies and other tracks have been added to arrive at the single you hear now.
This song speaks of wishing to be able to hold onto the special moments we have that seem fleeting. The lyrics express the wish that we could freeze time or somehow learn to “stop the sun.” This song will be featured on the upcoming full-length release, “White”, but you can enjoy it now as a preview single! Fans of Lifehouse, OneRepublic and The Script should especially enjoy this rock-inspired love ballad.
Stop the Sun
The days have come and they have gone
Wish I’d faith like Joshua to stop the sun
A moment frozen in time
Where I could be yours and you’d be mine
Life’s merry-go-round spins us past
Wish I could make these all too brief moments last
Turn a blink into nine
Where we’d be just one heartbeat entwined
If I had my wish time would be undone
So I could hold you forever now my love
One moment burning bright
If only my love could learn
To stop the sun
I try to show how much I cherish you in song
Though some days work takes me away from you too long
So I hope that these words
Will ring in your ears till I am home
For it seems just a glance over my shoulder when we met
But somehow a year’s flown by since the day when we were wed
Oh we’ve laughed and we’ve cried
Seen both struggles, blessings alike
I thank God for you my wife
