The year is coming to an end fast. It has been a great year for me. I’ve watch my fifth album come out and my company continue to grow. I’ve seen my friend, co-workers, former and current band members all grow. I experienced award nominations, and several high publicized tv appearances. I enjoyed an even more expanded world tour than the years before. Lived half of the year on stages all around the world. We did over 120 concerts this year. Maybe more. Each one being either a beautiful or learning experience. I marched in Jena with Michael Baisden, Al Sharpton and thousands of other inspiring energies. I said goodbye to one of my most important teachers. I stayed healthy, which I’ve learned isn’t the easiest thing in the world. I’ve been able to enjoy time at home with my family, my friends and most of all my woman. So much has happened I honestly could fill up a page for every single day of this year. In short, I am thankful for what I was able to experience and learn, and I look forward to another year. A year of challenges, lessons, rewards, memories, music, and opportunities.
I have been recording lately. Who knows when I will have another record ready, but I can say it feels good to be creating again. I hope to write a lot this year, while maintaining the same touring pace we’ve had over the last few years. I just ask for your prayers, and I will continue to pray for you. Okay its 4:30 am. Im gonna jot down some lyrics and then go to bed. Just wanted to drop some thoughts on you.
P.S. You know what, I do have more to say. By no means is this a new years resolution. I don’t do well with those. But I am rededicating myself to a higher level of focus. I don’t need to be perfect, because I will never be, but I want this to be a work year. Sure I want to have another album out and a couple of hits on other artists. Sure I want to build my staff larger, and expand my tour. And yes I definitely want to make more money than I did this year. But more importantly I want to work on myself. If I work on myself I feel the rest will fall in place. I want to put aside judging and assuming so much. I want to focus on the now more than the past and the future. I want to be a better man all across the board. To challenge my self, and by example challenge others to step up. Its time in so many ways. Im probably speaking it, so that its documented and I hold myself accountable.
P.P.S. Each week I am going to tell of an experience in the studio or stage that has helped me in my career. Don’t know what day it will be but my goal is to share some insight on situations upcoming producers, songwriters, artists, and music lovers can benefit from. Stay tuned.


  1. The blog is a good look on you sir. I look forward to reading the "studio liner notes".

  2. A year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. So here's to much prosperity in 2008!

  3. It has been an incredible year for you, and I'm so happy that I was able to witness you doing your thing on a few of those stages. (And I'm starting off 2008 right by seeing you in Philly on 1/1 and DC on 1/4!!) It has be great getting to know you, and I can't wait to hear what you got next cause I know it's gonna be some hotness.

    Continued blessings and success. You deserve all that and more.

    Much love & support,

  5. I like to think of the New Year as a continuation of another year. Like you, I will focus on the things that made me happy or enlightened my year long journey and do more of what makes me happy and well.

  6. There is a song on this page ( and someone tells me it's sung by you, but I cannot find it anywhere, your name is not on the page, and neither is the song title. Will you please email me at, and tell me what album this is on so I can buy that CD?
