Well, it’s been a wonderful seven years.

I embarked on this project with Scott Taube and Abe Hege in May 2005. Scott and I have accomplished many things since then, working with a lot of different people in a lot of different places over the years. It is at this time that I feel like I have thoroughly invested everything into Philmont that I am able, both personally and professionally; and it is time for a change.

I told the guys this, and it is the truth: this is absolutely the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to follow through with. Philmont has been my life, more or less, for many years now. We’ve seen and done some amazing things, and met many truly amazing people, none of whom I will soon forget. Thank you to everyone who has watched me play a show, bought a CD, let me stay in your home, given me a ride to some late-night eatery, or anything similarly gracious. I’ve lived moments with Philmont that I know will be on my highlight reel at the end of this life.

All this being said, I am not disappearing from the face of the earth. I will be finishing out the summer with the guys, and my last show will be August 31st at Lifelight Festival in South Dakota [Last year at this festival, as I was driving our bus up to the festival grounds, we got rear-ended and our trailer was demolished! You’re lucky I’m giving you a chance to redeem yourself, South Dakota!] After August, I hope that all of you will continue to follow alongside me in my journeys, as I work on producing other artists’, as well as my own, musical endeavors. I know God’s purpose for me is a musical one, and I don’t plan on straying from that.

On top of that, I will still be very present on the “Facebooks” and the “Twitters”, so let’s keep being friends! And if you want to come to a show to tell me goodbye, or how I’m you’re least favorite member of the band, you still have some time.

Seriously, you’re all the best, and you haven’t heard the last of me or Philmont, so keep your ears peeled. Have a great day.
