I am so freakin' excited and honored to be a Northeast Finalist in this year's NewSong contest.. Some of my buds and heroes have won in recent years, including Ingrid Michaelson, Craig Carothers, Amber Rubarth and Arthur Alligood. Here's a little bit more about the contest below.. I'll be posting a video soon and there is a "People's Choice" winner so I may need your help in a little bit!
