"Tearing Down The Walls" is my introduction to the world as an artist. Written, recorded, and produced in my small bedroom studio, it is a true representation of myself. Although it was not created to the industry standard of modern recordings, I believe it is honest work that people can relate to.
I was fortunate to collaborate with very talented musicians during the start of this musical adventure. They invested in my music with little return besides the moments we shared performing. The lineup has changed with time; I now work with a solid group of guys who eat, sleep, and breathe music. There is no doubt in my mind that they will push my music to the next level (and possibly many levels after that).
Honesty is the most important characteristic of our band. We'd rather be under-estimated than over-blown. We try to maintain an honest appearance by simply sharing our work and connecting with others. What you see is what you get! Work hard and let the music speak for itself.
Thanks for listening,
In the past 8 months the band has won a battle of the bands competition titled "Champ Of The Champ," released a full length album titled '180 Gram' as well as a music video for their single "The Way That You Move." They continue to play many local shows, recently becoming a headlining band, and certainly a locally recognized one. Over the past year the band has played venues such as 'The Chameleon Club' and 'The Lancaster County Convention Center' in Lancaster, and 'The Champion Ship' in Harrisburg. Influences for their innovative and dynamic songs include Joan Jett and The Runaways, iconic classic rock groups such as The Who and The Rolling Stones, as well as modern powerhouse groups like The Used, Blink-182 and The Pink Spiders.
The members plan to continue performing locally, as well as possibly touring and releasing another album. As they play their new songs for an eager and loyal audience, it becomes apparent that their music is becoming more complex and diverse, appealing to a wider demographic and will continue to engage and please listeners both old and new. Colored Vinyl is a talented young band on the rise and is without a doubt a force to be reckoned with."
Well, needless to say, I wrote my first little diddy those first two weeks and I was hooked. The Lord developed a passion for music and writing songs. I remember playing my first show in freshman year of High School. It was at a coffee house and I was extremely nervous. Once that show was done and the night was over I realized that this is what I want to do. Back then my motives for playing music were a little different from what they are now. I am grateful for that as well. As I have matured, so has the music.
High school came and went and the more I got serious about the Lord, the more I loved music. Jesus Christ has given me a hope beyond what I can comprehend. Often times I lose sight of that greatness, and what comes from those moments are songs.... A lot of my writing has come from the low points in life where I realize how far away I have come from the Love of Christ. The beautiful thing is, nothing can separate us from His love. Nothing.
My life has been far from perfect, and there have been many times where darkness has flooded my heart. However, there has never been a moment in my life where God has not intervened in the dark and brought forth the light of hope. That hope is Jesus Christ who died for this world. For me. I say this because the gospel of Jesus Christ drives the songs that are written. In the times of darkness there is hope; there is hope beyond understanding. These lessons I have learned through some hard experiences. I thank the Lord for each one of them. Circumstances like these have kept me up at night and have allowed me to etch my heart into songs that have been able to encourage hearts that listen. I praise the Lord for that!
I am just an everyday guy walking this journey of a life. I am looking to write honest songs about honest situations that everyday people face. It’s more then just music and lyrics that I want to capture. It is about people’s walk of life. I pray that as you listen in on these songs that you will be encouraged! I am excited to be able to share my heart in this way.These songs are just a story of checkpoints in my life where I have had to turn away and look up at the bright hope there is in Christ. God bless and enjoy! And please connect with me via the contact page. I would love to hear from you my friends.
