about

Be Present is the first single from my first full length album, Conversion. Conversion was recorded over ten days at The Sound Shelter in Franklin, Tennessee. I went into the studio with no idea what my album was going to sound like. No one in my band had heard these songs prior to the session. I handed out charts, we listened through the demo recording, and then we arranged and recorded the songs on the spot. My idea with this approach is that music is the most powerful and fun when it is first created. This album captures a moment in time and recording it changed my life. Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to this project and brought my songs to life.

lyrics

Sick and tired everyday
Hearing what everyone has to say
Shut your mouth, go away

Social affair
I see the way they stare
No, I don't care

Because I know how to

Live my life with no sorrows
Live like there's no tomorrow
Get it all out before it's too late
Save the date in the present
While it's still pleasant
Join me on center stage and go

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Some people stay the same
Dirty little picture frame
It's not too late to change

Same old clothes, same old shirt
Worn filled with dust and dirt
Brush if off, be an extrovert

Because we got to

Live life with no sorrows
Live like there's no tomorrow
Get it all out before it's too late
Save the date in the present
While it's still pleasant
Join me on center stage and go

oh oh oh oh oh oh
