brite revolution

Hey folks!

So I have some good news. We are officially part of Brite Revolution! What is Brite you ask? Well, it’s a FREE music subscription site that features all sorts of independent artists like us. Members have access to exclusive tracks from each artist every month—oh AND your membership helps support great causes. Win, win!

Tyler and I have 4 songs up for download–One Eyed Cat, This Isn’t A Dream, an acoustic version of Deepest Parts of Me, and a brand NEW song called Holding On to Hope. You can download Holding onto Hope and Deepest Parts of Me exclusively through brite. And did I mention you also get to download tons of music by other great artists? (think Andy Davis, Ten Out of Tenn, the Daylights, Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, Ben Rector). If you haven’t heard of any of these artists then you really need to join! When you join through us you help us support the International Justice Mission which works to combat human trafficking. You can learn more about IJM here: http://www.ijm.org

yum yum yum

I’m really feeling like a ought to post…

possibly because it’s been a month since I last updated this blog!

We’re in Zion, IL (that’s just north of Chicago) hanging out with friends this evening. Tomorrow we will lead worship at our friend’s church and then tomorrow night we will have a crazy awesome house concert! I’m pretty excited. It’s been an interesting/fun few days of tour. I’ve been reminded that God provides not only what I need, but often what I want.

Example 1: We played a house concert on Wednesday night in Spring Valley, OH. The girl that hosted the show is an extremely talented handbag designer. I’ve been in the market for a new laptop bag. I mentioned it to Tyler the other day. It was one of those, “oh, Tyler, by the way, if you ever feel like getting me a gift, a new lap top bag would be just dandy.” He smiled. He doesn’t really have a good reason to get me a gift right now. The next holiday we’ve got coming up is our 3 year wedding anniversary, and as much as I’d like a laptop bag, I don’t want one for my anniversary. Anyway, Tyler says to our host (her name is Cassie), “you don’t make laptop bags do you?” to which she replies, “yes.” SO long story short we traded a t-shirt for a bag! Woo!

OH and you should probably check out her stuff: http://www.cassandradonovann.com

Example 2: I LOVE ice cream. I really really do. We don’t get ice cream very often when we’re on the road. All that changed this tour. Seriously. At Huntington University they hooked us up with meal cards to the dining hall, meaning free soft serve chocolate ice cream for every meal! AND last night after our show in Marion, some folks took us out to Steak N Shake! Those milkshakes are so good. Yum.

OH and this tour has been more than just chocolate ice cream and french fries and all that yummy stuff. We’ve actually had a great time playing some music and meeting some awesome people.

Tomorrow night we’re in Zion and then we head north to Minneapolis. Check out the tour page and see if we’re coming your way!
