I'm about to release "The Calm and Clear" in about a month or so and it's been a bit of a whirlwind getting this done. I'm grateful that even though this is a full-length album, from start to finish, I was able to finish this album in a relatively short amount of time. A great deal of this is because of the exceptional personnel I've had the honor of working with throughout my time in the studio. In as little as a few days, I was able to track and mix the album I'm about to release! Something really cool was the fact that in the midst of studio time, I was able to get away for a little while and promote my album through the Far East Broadcasting Company in Seoul, Korea. Check out the interview below!
"The Calm and Clear" is an album of re-arranged hymns and two of my originals. This is a unique album since it was recorded entirely with a jazz combo. This project definitely took me out of my comfort zone, but I enjoyed working with stellar musicians. I really can't wait for y'all to hear this! In the meantime, stay tuned for more news and updates!
