5 years ago today I released my first album "The Preacher's Basement". Wow, So much has changed since then!
I almost didn't release the album. I had actually finished the majority of it years before the release, but felt it wasn't good enough so I shelved it and went back to work at my regular day job. Basically I gave up on music, for a time.
Then in 2011 I decided I was going to dive head first into this crazy world of music again and record another album (Albino Black Bear). However, it didn't feel right that the songs on Preacher's Basement hadn't yet been heard (save for a few close friends and family).
So I polished it up, and released it on March 15th 2011... which I guess could be defined as the unofficial start of my career as a musician. Crazy, it feels like I've been doing this my whole life... but 5 years isn't that long! I'm now doing music full time, a dream which I thought was impossible 5 years ago. Thanks everybody for your love and support, I'm so glad I decided to give music another chance. There is so much more to come.
