I spent over a year without writing a single song. Then in the fall of 2011, ten songs suddenly found themselves in my lap. I had a strong feeling that they something special, so I took my bank account and wrung it completely dry and asked you guys to help me see to it that these songs make it through. Those songs were released and my life was forever changed.
Learning To Live turned one year old on May 15th, 2013. In the year since it was released, this record has turned this band into a family and took us across the country. It has changed not only our lives, but so many others, and we couldn't be more thankful for the people who have listened and supported this record. So to thank you for all that you've done for us, we're releasing this record for free on NoiseTrade. There is an option for donation if you'd like, but we just want you to have this as our gift for being so incredible to us this year.
Rival Summers also turned five years old this May. To have seen it from me playing my guitar by myself to what it has grown to be with both Sam and Caleb aboard, it's so humbling. I know God's looking out for us and we're so stoked to keep pressing forward. This year, we're excited to see this family we've built ourselves grow into something even more beautiful. We believe in this, and we believe in you.
Please share this record, pass it along to your friends and family, and let's keep singing along. Together.
