#1 – Domestic Church: It will feature songs about my childhood, my engagement, marriage, and love for my wife, and the joy of having children – all songs to remind us that it is the family that is the only firm foundation for society. This 10-15 song album will be released in the fall of 2019. One of the songs featured in the album is called ‘Moving On’ and you can listen to a simple rough draft of it below.
#2 Moving On

#2 – Fighting for the Kingdom: It will contain themes of overcoming temptation, sin, and the devil. We must not downplay the effects of sin or forget that hell is real. I’m making this album to try to awaken our hearts to fight for the salvation of first our own souls- and then the souls of others. This 10-15 song album will be released in the spring of 2020. The opening song is called ‘The Devil’s House’ and you can watch a simple acoustical version of it below.

#3 – While Earth Remains: This album will encourage the listener to a greater love for all that God has done for us and will be an invitation for us to go deeper into the heart of Christ as we attempt to conform our lives to HIs will before our time on earth is finished. I hope that this album will inspire us to give more of our lives over to prayer, penance, and serving the people God brings into our lives. This 10-15 song album will be released in the fall of 2020. The opening song is called ‘Afloat’ and you can watch a simple acoustical version of it below.
