Liner Notes: 

Songs are messages from beyond and I try my best to get out of the way to receive the message. I was originally going to write a song about doubt and feeling bad about myself but this song morphed and transformed into one about keeping faith in the process. I've been moving through some intense feelings lately and this is a nice reminder to keep going to the path even when things feel hard.

Lyrics: 

Stay the course
Though the path is hard to see
Overgrown with vines and weeds
You don’t know where it leads

You’re never lost
Even if you feel like you’ve been tossed
Deep into the woods
This path you’re on
Was made for you

To grow
You’re gonna stretch yourself
It’s gonna hurt like hell
To be as big as you really are

I know
You feel like a mess sometimes
You’ve got to catch your breath, alright
When things get hard

You’re exactly where you need to be
Trust yourself, trust in me

Stay the course
Though the path is hard to see
Overgrown with vines and weeds
You don’t know where it leads

You’re never lost
Even if you feel like you’ve been tossed
Deep into the woods
This path you’re on
Was made for you

Take it slow
There’s no need to race to the end
You’ve got your family and friends
Walking by your side

Be sure
To say “I love you”
Because our paths may end too soon
Be thankful for this time

You’re exactly where you need to be
Trust yourself, trust in me

Stay the course
Though the path is hard to see
Overgrown with vines and weeds
You don’t know where it leads

You’re never lost
Even if you feel like you’ve been tossed
Deep into the woods
This path you’re on
Was made for you

All of the doubt, let it go
All of the fear, let it go
It doesn’t serve you anymore
It doesn’t serve you
You’re becoming who you are
Shining like a shooting star

Stay the course
Though the path is hard to see
Overgrown with vines and weeds
You don’t know where it leads

You’re never lost
Even if you feel like you’ve been tossed
Deep into the woods
This path you’re on
Was made for you

You have a really fine voice and the guitar sounds great too. I like the epic feeling of this. Wise words and mesmerizing performance.

A strong, encouraging message in the lyrics, and the vocals and guitar in your performance are both amazing! I like how you ended up freestyling a bit with the melody closer to the end of the song. Awesome work!

I love that melody on the chorus and your voice is great on this one, too. I guess I'm just a fan of your singing because you're consistently good. I really dig your vibe.

I am listening through all of your songs and your melody and words wind so beautifully through each song. I am amazed at the tone you are getting from your guitar. I am curious how you are recording your instrument. It sounds so rich and full! Can you share your technique?
