What the DEALIO? (RE: Stages EP? merp.)

Howdy do! Wowza, it’s been a crazy season. I’ve moved both my studio and home into a new location (ie. the SAME location – I’ll be sure to post some pics when it looks better than it does :/) and it’s been a beeaaarrrr trying to get everything situated. So what does this mean for the Stages EP? I’m glad you asked!

Tracking for the Stages EP finished last night. I yelled things into a microphone and now all that’s left is to mix and distribute. Huzzah! I suspect the finishing touches will be in place over the next two weeks and then I’ll be thinking about scheduling an event to debut the new tuneskis. Looking at April or May. How neat is that?

And a super duper Madler THANK YOU to my band – Dave Brent, Dave Hernandez, Tony David Neely, and Katie “Davy” Boyd. Y’all are such a blessing and it’s an honor to play music and do life with ya. You make the music awesome.

2014 Goin’s On (So Far)

Howdy do errbody! I’m sitting outside, sipping a latté, on the most beautiful day in the history of San Antonio. Today’s a good day, fo sho.

2014 has been a busy year already. January has been amazing – I got to work on a film trailer score, produce a progressive rock tune, track some CCM stuff, work on my own Stages EP, and play a fun show at Journey out in Selma… it’s been a blasty blast. Not sure why I’m writing this blog like a child, but go with it. Whateva’. I do wut I wawnt.

I’ve also been working on booking some shows for this year. Some notable shows so far are…

1) w/ Newsboys, 7eventh Time Down, and Rapture Ruckus at Castle Hills Baptist on May 9th (wheee!)
2) w/ Seventh Day Slumber at Zionfest in Fredericksburg, TX on June 28th
3) w/ 7eventh Time Down, Ryan Stevenson, and Josiah James at Reach Out Fest in Cortez, CO on Aug 23rd

Praise God for the opportunities! It’s gonna be super fun. We’re also working on getting a SXSW slot, as well as a tour that takes me through Colorado. If you’re in north/west Texas, New Mexico, or Colorado and you’d like me to play a show/lead worship for your church or group, hit me up!

To God be the glory,
