Pedalboard Rundown 2.0

Guitar
Just the facts

My board has been through a lot of changes lately and I couldn't be happier. Here's a rundown of the new signal chain. *Note: When I turn on the compressor the amp overdrives in the video.

Drums
No Technology Necessary

When I was preparing for David Crowder's "My Victory," I quickly realized that I had to get creative. When you listen to this song, pay attention to all of the production within this track.

Bass
Better Together

Worship Leading
Brought to you by the satire department.

At Worship Artistry, we’re all about “bringing your best” and that goes TRIPLE for Easter so make sure you’re on your game. You should be stressed out. If you haven’t cried yourself to sleep every night for at least the last 40 days you’re doing it wrong! Sure, God has grace for us, but those people who only come to church twice a year don’t. They expect top quality and if they don’t get it, they’ll probably go somewhere else at Christmas. You want that weighing on your conscience? I sure as heaven don’t! Everything has to be perfect.
