Hi Friends!

I’m so excited to share that I am in the studio working on a brand new project, HEARTLAND.

The power of rolling hills, the silence of endless cornfields, and the electricity of a Friday night game set the stage for the journey. Each song in HEARTLAND embodies the place where I learned the stuff of life – fear, love, anger, doubt, …. and hope. As a proud, homegrown boy of the Midwest, I’m tipping my hat to the greats that shaped my youth, like Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, and Tom Petty. But more than anything, I hope that when you hear this record and listen to these songs, you hear my heart. Because I mean every last bit of it.

Heartland is my best music yet and I was determined to bring you guys into the process as much as possible. I believe the purpose of music is to create meaningful connection and partnering with Pledge was the perfect way to make music with a community. This way I can give you exclusive, early access to music, videos from the studio, photos from the road, and sneak peeks at unfinished tracks!

A digital download of the project comes with every pledge but you’ll also have the chance to sign up for some pretty unique experiences and limited edition products. Whether you’d like a signed album, a coffee date with yours truly via skype or to host me in a house concert, there’s something for everyone. Once you’ve pledged feel free to share with your friends, and invite them to get involved.

Heartland would not be possible without you and so this is my way of saying welcome to the family! Thank you so much for believing in me and supporting me on this journey. It means so much, and I can’t wait to walk this next road with YOU!

-John
