Album Notes
Growing up in America is a beautiful and devastating experience. We don’t all think about it, but I think we all know it. I wanted to make an album that told the story, and I wanted to be honest.

As a songwriter, you feel like a painter without all the colors, without the brushes you need to make this stroke or that one. As hard as you try, you can never tell the whole story. But you feel called to try.

The thirteen songs on the album have grown up with me the last few years. I wrote them all in the privacy of my room, but most of them have found their way out in a community of high school students that I’ve had the privilege of shepherding for the last four years. I never would have written many of these songs if the Lord hadn’t called me to this church and to this body of people.

If the first half of “Growing Up In America” is different shades of night, the second half is the hope of dawn to the full light of day. If the first half paints the picture of the mess we’ve made of this place, the second half paints the picture of God’s rescue in Jesus. If the first half declares, “We are more messed up than we could ever imagine,” the second half screams, “We are more loved than we could ever dream.”

If the first half is our need, the second half is God’s provision. The gospel.

All of our stories are different, but I hope that you might find truth in these songs that resonates with your experience. I hope you’ll find that, even though the darkness can be overwhelming, the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will never overcome it.

I pray that what I’ve seen and heard, the pictures I’ve tried to paint in these songs, might be a blessing and encouragement to people. So I invite you to listen to these songs and the story they tell. But listen all the way through. If you only hear the first half, you might end up in despair. And if you only hear the second half, you might not realize why we desperately need hope...and why our hope is so beautiful. So take a listen, and if you believe there’s something to the album, I hope you’ll pass it on.

At the beginning of his ministry Jesus uttered three beautiful and devastating words. “Repent and believe.” No matter where we are or what we’re doing, that might still be exactly what we need to hear as we’re all growing up in America.
