At the beginning of this year I read a blog post by Seth Godin that has stuck with me ever since. In it, he writes, “The truth though, is that doing what you've been doing is going to get you what you've been getting.” His advice is that if you don’t like what you’re getting, change the story. So, over the last year I started a podcast, wrote over 100 blog posts, and in October I left my job as a web developer. For the seven years I have lived in Nashville, I’ve split time between making music and making websites. For the first time, I’m giving music my full focus. I’ve never been good at planning ahead, but I’m trying to change the story. I have a full calendar mapped out for 2019, and the good news is I have a lot of new music to share with you. I’m also going to be writing to you more often, andI’d love to hear from you.
Next month, on December 7 I’m releasing a music video for “Cut and File” from my album Blame The Miles Between. It’s not a coincidence that this song is about changing the story I tell myself about myself–
“I spent a while trying to cut and file myself into something you’d wanna see
...but I got wise to all the lies that always made me feel so incomplete.”
This is the first “official” music video we’ve done and I’m so excited to share it with you.
