The album started out as a bunch of acoustic songs I’d written for my wife over 3 years. "Hold On, Let Go" is a new set of acoustic-based songs that carry the nostalgia of American chord progressions and the melodies of modern folk; a collection of tender lyrics reflecting memories of struggles, death, and romance while pointing toward a constant hope. Life is full of choices of what to hold on to and what to let go of. This album is a window into how I’m going about that.

Track Name: Hold On, Let Go
When the feeling starts, you feel it in your heart
Feel it in your soul, feelings to hold on, or feelings to let go
It’s driving in your car, searching for your home
Searching for the star to light up the unknown
You heard it in a song and saw it on a screen
Felt it in a kiss, and hid it with the trees
Waited there alone, met it with the dawn
And shared with all your heart, your fear of the unknown

Your mother told you Son, always keep your cool
Always hang your heart pointed towards the truth
Never waster your mind, expense is all in time
And the hardest things to find are the easiest to hide.
Your father spent his life working for a dime
‘Said Son if love you find, we’ll Baby that’s worth dying
So you’re out there on your own searching for a home
Searching for a star that you can call your own

And you hold out your hands 'cause you just don't understand
