"I’ll say “Shine,” as well, which is the finale of the record. It’s based on a thirteenth century poem. It originally said, “Even after all these years the sun never said to the Earth, ‘You owe me,’ and look what happens with a love like that; it lights up the whole sky.” I wanted to embellish upon this poem, and I created this story of the sun and the moon and how the moon actually didn’t have a light of its own, but it was still going to work at night to light the sky and borrow light from the sun. The closing verse to that is, “If you forget that you’re special, just remember that wherever you go and however you move that light shines directly to you.” We can experience that when we’re looking at the moon on water or when we look out of our car and the moon is following us. In our own thoughts we can choose to feel that we’re loved and we’re being watched over and that we matter. Those are important things as humans who often times fall victim to our thoughts and feel like we’re alone and that we can do no good."

"If I were to lose my memories, I would rely on music. There is so much of my story embedded in each. I suppose I would also read from my diaries, the short stories of the funny and beautiful moments that have occurred in my life. Perhaps even mentioning the mundane routines in life. Every moment counts. :)"

"

For me, success is the ability to connect to spirit through music. As long as I remain healthy & present, success will never be taken from me.

Thank you for supporting this divinely successful journey!

"And I’d also like to thank the 18-year-old kid that I used to be that had a foolish dream that he could be successful in music, because without him I wouldn’t be here today."

"I said to my label, ‘What if we put out this acoustic-based album that’s written and recorded with these four amazing women? Just as a little side project,’” he explains. “Everyone loved it. We got a green light within 24 hours, but then they said, ‘This is not a side project, this is your next album. It’s that good.’ Ever since, we put a bit more time and care into the quality of the songs to ensure that the collection stands up to the rest of my records."

"When Raining Jane and I originally penned “A Beautiful Mess,” we had no idea we would ever be where we are now. But we certainly dreamed it, evident in the lyric, “We will fly like birds not of this earth.” This is truly how we feel right now in this shared experience, so much so that the new album cover donning 5 birds reflects that and is dedicated to our ongoing journey together. We thank you for being a part of this. And we thank you for lifting us up."

"Sometimes you get overbooked and your schedule just doesn’t afford you any time to yourself. I’ve had to learn how to make sure I get time to myself and make sure that I continue to live my life rather than just being somebody that’s living for something else."

"It was a conscious decision of mine to write happy songs because I think happy music is much harder to make and I like that challenge. Anyway, it would kill me to sing sad songs every night."

"I write my miserable songs. I write songs about disgust and self-pity. We’re all going to have bummer moments. That’s not the stuff I choose to share."
