Busy Busy Busy!
Wow, its been quite a while since I have posted anything here. I am ashamed that I haven't been as active as I was earlier in the year. I do have a few reasons for that though!
1.) My wife and I play in a group together called The Polk Duo. Since about May of this year, we were busy producing our latest album Wonderful. It's a project that we started writing about April of 2015 and was released on August 12, 2016. It was a huge project for us as a group and as a couple. We are very proud of the work that we put into it, along with the help of some very good friends. If you would like to check it out, feel free to click this link! Here's the cover art created by Todgi Dozier! Huge shout out to Larry Q Draughn for laying down the drum parts, Peter Kimosh for his recording/mixing mastery, Al Strong & Tim Smith for laying down some horns, and Byron Carter for his bass work on the track More Than!
2.) I have recently decided to jump back into the classroom teaching K-5 Elementary! It's something that is entirely new and has been quite an interesting experience. The thing that I find that I love most is that kids love to sing and dance, so it's been very helpful in making me sing and dance more! I've always kind of had a fear of singing and playing guitar, but because it's important to do some in class, I think that I been growing quite a bit. Since i've started teaching, unfortunately, composing has come to a complete hault. My goal is to make sure that I start it back up again in the new year (Lord Willing).
