Getting Adjusted....

It's a super weird feeling getting adjusted to any new way of life. Before becoming a recording artist on a label I had already been married 5 years, 1 toddler down and working a full-time grown up job.  Next thing I knew I was traveling more and more playing music and winding up in some majorly surreal situations. It’s funny because most every artist I meet while out at these events I still feel more like a fan than a peer. When you are a newbie like me you spend most of your time trying to stay afloat than feeling like people should know who you are or care for that matter. That’s just where I am right now – a new artist and I’m very ok with it.

 I just returned home from Seattle where I was involved with some label fun and hanging with some extended family. To be sipping a coffee in downtown Seattle in the morning and at home with your family in Florida the same day exhilarating. Oh yeah, before I forget I better mention that the dudes from Hawk Nelson, Run Kid Run and  Cameron w/ Jaymes Reunion are all stellar individuals. I saw Christ in all of them at some point along the trip and nothing inspires me more than those moments.

This trip really hit home on how awesome it is to be able to enjoy God’s blessings in my life. I didn’t ask for any of this nor do I deserve it. Once again I was reminded that I can’t compete against these bands. Compliment yes but not compete. We are all in this together and when is unison we are a sweet blessing to Christ and each other.
After all my music obligations were complete I hooked up with my cousin and went cruising through Seattle on 2 sweet BMX bikes. It helps so much having an insider’s help on where to get the best coffee in Seattle and the worst BMX dirt beating. Somewhere along our trek my cousin thought it was a good idea to take me to this BMX Park under the interstate (MADE OUT OF RAW TIMBER)
If you are ever close to this particular interstate please for your own safety do NOT go under the interstate. If safety is not something you are looking for in this life than at least wear a suit of armor.  While I was running over to see if my cousin was alive after flying over a huge dirt mountain head first it all became clear…
 
I LOVE THIS JOB!!!!
