Recorded in Sparta, MN at Rich Mattson's Sparta Studios, "All But My Soul" is my debut album as a solo artist. Although I've spent the majority of my career playing hard rock anthems, the role of singer/songwriter really is a better definition of who I am. As this was my first effort to put together a real album, the challenges were both exhausting and exciting. The result is a collection of songs spanning nearly 10 years of my life, somehow working together to make a cohesive work. As an artist, there are always things you'd like to change about it, this part or that part, and I am especially critical of myself. Looking back on it now though, I wouldn't change a thing. The experience was great and I learned so much from it all. The final product came out great and it was well recieved by critics and fans alike, so at the end of the day, I'm happy. I hope you enjoy it!
