about

"Pieces" is a collection of old songs from different recording sessions, demos, live shows, and videos collected in one place.

Somehow, Soldiers and Teacups, A Comprehensive History of the Western Hemisphere, Sixty-Four, Joseph, and Song For Everyone are outtakes from the original draft of The Sparrow & The Whale (full album released in 2006 under the name A Rocket Named Justice). Recorded between the Elm House and various Bethel dorm rooms between 2006 and

Highway Town was recorded by Chris Waycaster in Manges Hall in the fall of 2006, and was the first song I wrote for my wife, three years before we started dating, back when I had a huge crush on her and didn't tell her.

Midnight Gypsy was recorded at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend, IN, recorded by Andy Hopkins.

Bigtop, Cages (Or A Lack Thereof), and You Are the Ocean are from an abandoned single-mic, one take (hence the text message in Bigtop) album called Old Man Songs recorded at the Elm House.

Yellow Bird was recorded in the back of Lauren Trapp's Jeep on the way to David Trapp's birthday party, back before they were even dating.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me back when I was writing and playing these songs, whether you heard them at Open Mic at Fiddler's, down the halls of the Bethel dorms, at Sufficient Grounds Coffeehouse, or wherever else I might have been warbling these tunes. Thanks for making those times worthwhile. Thanks to everyone continuing to support me through SPACESHIPS, Dad Jokes, Nativity, and whatever other project might develop through this.

I love you all.
