Follow the rules Follow the leader Follow the money Follow the path Breadcrumbs for your sacred life Follow the signs Follow the prophets Follow the crowd Then break away Follow the path Breadcrumbs for your sacred life Follow the path, follow the path (3x) Your sacred life Follow the milk Follow the honey Follow the sweetness of a knowing heart Following the path Breadcrumbs for your sacred life Follow your nose Follow your instincts Follow your calling Follow the path Breadcrumbs for your sacred life Follow the path, follow the path (3x) Your sacred life

If we lose our gravity This ocean could fly And hold her love for the first time Before the light dies But if we touch the heavens collapse So you keep your place, and I'll keep mine And we can get closer At the high tide

It's our natural tendency to stay exactly as we are It's our natural tendency to stay exactly as we are

Friend, take a walk with me To the mountain of cedar trees Against the odds we'll take our stand Two thirds god, one third man In a dream the mountain falls Birds breath fire, the thunder calls To have you friend so near... This is no time to fear A new home in a house of dust Everything falls, I'm on the cusp Against the odds we took our stand Two thirds god, one third man We make our own devices And many sacrifices To hold on to this life here This is no time to fear This is no time to fear This is no time to fear

All that you touch you change All that you change changes you The only lasting truth is change God is change ~ Octavia Butler, from The Parable of the Sower

about

I'm pleased to share with you a new release, Broad Street Sessions. Over the last three years, I've had the privilege to work with some Atlanta's greatest talent to shape the sound of these songs for live performance. They've evolved in many ways from the original recordings from First Flight and Inertia. Before moving on to my next project, I wanted to memorialize this work, showcasing the power of collaboration and friendship. Thank you Steven Cervantes (bass), Christopher Edwards (guitar), Alexa Edmonds (keys), Jared Michael Pepper (drums), Dan Carey Bailey (engineering and mixing), and Jeremi Johnson (mastering) for all your hard work in putting this together. We recorded these songs at Broad Street Visitors Center, which was a fantastic experience and felt significant as a way to honor the legacy of Broad Street in Atlanta's DIY music culture. I also want to send my gratitude to past and occasional members of the band who were instrumental in cultivating these tunes to their current form: Dylan Banks, Kimb Collins, Jared Collins, Jeremi Johnson and Gage Gilmore. Shout out Melissa Alexander (AKA Phyllis Iller) for the cover photography!
