The Ballad of Johnny Appleseed

I'm thrilled to present The Ballad of Johnny Appleseed. This is something of a rebirth for me. While GOML was about walling myself off & pushing people away, BOJA is about heading into the world with a fresh look, a sense of adventure, & the knowledge that your life is what you make it.

Let's Plant Some Seeds

I'm doing something a bit different with the packaging for this one. These are custom seed packets, inside which you’ll find a download card for the album, as well as some actual seeds. Encouraging you to grow your own apple orchard seemed a bit excessive, so I went with tomatoes. The album drops 05/06/16, but you can pre-order here.

First look at the tracklist for The Ballad of Johnny Appleseed, as well as a clue to the packaging. It’s definitely not a CD...

The Ballad of Johnny Appleseed

I am proud to announce that The Ballad of Johnny Appleseed has an official release date. May 6th, 2016. There's going to be a lot of interesting stuff going on with this record. Recently, I was a guest on OverDog Radio & we talked all about it...the change in sound, topics, and more. Great interview & a highly recommended listen. 

You're definitely going to want to connect with me on Twitter/IG/Etc to stay in the loop on this one. Or you can bookmark www.JohnnyAppleseedAlbum.com & get all your BOJA info there.

Uncle Sam - My Story [Official Video]

My Story is the result of a revelation I had while working on my new album. I often felt that my own life was trivial, un-important, and un-interesting in the grand scheme of things... Then I realized that's exactly what makes it so important. ALL of our stories hold that same weight. True- some of our lives may make for better movies, but we all are a part of the same human experience. We all feel the same emotions. We all have hopes and fears, experience triumphs and tragedies.  

It's easy to feel bogged down and marginalized. That's what we've got to fight against. Don't ever let anyone else tell you how your story should go, and don't waste your breath explaining and justifying your life. Get out and live. Maybe your story can't be told, but you CAN choose who is around to experience it with you. That's what's important.

I don't know how the rest of my story goes, but I'd love it if you joined me in finding out.
