I've always loved questions. (Perhaps you've noticed — my lyrics are riddled with them.) I love musing about life's winding road, always curious about what adventure lies around the next corner. Through the years, I've learned to appreciate the many questions that I have faced, both in my own private life as well as those I've faced in public.
Why is music so important to you?
What experiences have you had in your life that lead you to write the way you do?
What led you to Christian music and why did you leave it?
How is it that you realized you were gay?
When are you going to write a book about all this stuff?
After many requests, I've finally bitten the bullet and branched out into writing it all down for Facing the Music, coming October 7 and available for pre-order now.
In the book, I explore what have become the major forces that have influenced my path in life and the joy I've had in both the blessings and the challenges presented. From what life was like growing up, falling in love with music, the impact of finding faith, as well as navigating the impact of my coming out, taking the opportunity to write this book has been an adventure all its own.
I've always believed that each of us have an incredible gift to share with the world. We each have an adventure waiting for us in discovering what we have to offer and accepting the risk to share it with others. As my listeners and supporters, you have reminded me of that as you have shared your own with me. So now, as so many of you have asked, I'm humbly honored to be able to share a little of my own.
