Last night Don Vaughn held his album release party for “The Don Vaughn Experiment.” Guests were treated to a surprise performance of two of the three songs I wrote and sang for his album, “Ghost of Our Good Love,” and “Shadows and Light.” It was great to finally perform these songs after spending so much time crafting them in the studio. Ordering information for the CD will be online soon.
After months of prep work, I’m finally starting work on my next album! These post it notes each have the title of a song I’m considering for the album, and I keep rearranging them and finding a list I like only to completely change it 10 minutes later…but the important part is that A NEW ALBUM IS ON THE WAY!
My favorite part of this song has always been the harmonies John Legend sings with himself, and it got me thinking about doing an entirely a cappella version that built off that idea but was completely different from the original.

Special thanks to Philip Hall, Aisha Ussery, Bhavin Misra, Coffee Guzman, Katie Richey, and my parents for letting me run ideas by them and show them drafts before the song was complete.

I’ve been a huge fan of A Great Big World’s song “Say Something,” and I got Sarah Golden and Tricia Fox to help me make a cover of it. Somehow we managed to make the song sound even sadder than the original, but sadness not withstanding, I’m really happy with how it turned out! Enjoy!
Happy holidays! I’ve been performing my song “The First Snow” a lot this winter, so I wanted to share it with everyone! Special thanks to Tricia Fox for joining me for the recording.
Sarah, Tricia, and I worked together to make a video cover of Lorde’s “Royals.” Enjoy! (And special thanks to Chris for filming!)
