Recent Work: Tauren Wells Bio

This guy had his first tour stop tonight on the Tempo Tour. I was so pumped to write the bio for his new album several weeks ago.

I spent a good part of the day at the Chapman’s home, hearing his story and gathering the details. Part of the challenge with this project was to not only capture the newsworthiness of the project but to do it in a way that delicately handled the backstory. As most know, Chapman’s daughter was killed in an accident at the Chapman’s home, and that loss will forever influence his work as an artist and minister. Through that tragedy, hope emerged, and is captured on this album, which…
