Alone At The Pilgrim - Week 5 - 'Take Me Home'

 

I’m wrapping up this video series with a song that’s close to my heart.

I wrote ‘Take Me Home’ when a friend of mine was battling mental illness. I felt so helpless, watching him struggle with things neither of us knew how to fix. I imagined the need to feel loved and safe from his perspective and this song happened.

Thank You for watching and sharing these videos. It’s been a thrill to create and bring them to you. The EP is streaming on your favorite services like Spotify and Apple Music as of today!!!

 

ALONE AT THE PILGRIM - WEEK 4 - 'PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS'

 

‘Pressure Makes Diamonds’ is a song for everyone going through hard times. May we all emerge stronger and shining brighter.

This was the first song we rolled camera on, and with it moving all around me, I completely messed up the first take…this was totally different than just singing into an empty church all alone! Fortunately I regained my composure and found my rhythm.

The last vid from ‘Alone At The Pilgrim’ will be released next Friday, along with the EP on all streaming platforms! Thanks for watching, listening, and sharing!

 

ALONE AT THE PILGRIM - WEEK 3 - THE ONLY WAY

 

At some point we all must face our fears and find courage and strength where there is none.

We’ve come too far and it’s too late to turn around or run away.

This is ‘The Only Way’

Thanks for watching & sharing.

Stay Tuned for a New Video and original song next Friday, and join us for a celebration of the ‘Alone at the Pilgrim’ Videos and EP on 12/13 at La Poubelle in Hollywood, CA.

Alone At The Pilgrim - Week 1 - 'I Won't Back Down'

 

‘I Won’t Back Down’ was the nucleus of this entire project. I wanted to record this song in a big beautiful space. When the Church presented itself, that idea turned into something much bigger. In recent years, I’ve often closed my live performances with this song. The sentiment is so universal, and empowering.

Petty was a big influence on me. His was the first rock show I ever attended, and his songs made me want to write my own. There was something so right about singing this in there…it felt cathartic and purposeful, and sums up this whole project for me.

LIVE VIDEOS & EP

NEW VID EVERY FRIDAY IN NOVEMBER!

On a hot weekend last August, I recorded a live solo album and videos in a visually and acoustically stunning, forgotten church in Los Angeles, formerly know as the ‘Pilgrim.’ The room felt alive, and became an integral part of the music. I performed songs that felt connected to this spiritual space and its ideals.

The simplest expression of an idea always takes the most work, and a team of supremely talented, devoted people made creating this ‘solo’ album a beautifully collaborative experience. I love how the videos feel both intimate and huge.

Stream the EP ‘Alone At The Pilgrim’ now! Spotify and Apple Music now!

check out Tar+Feather and Redstar Recording. They provided incredible visual and audio creativity that brought this idea to life.
