December 26, 2003 - I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas...I got a nice surprise in my e-mail inbox on the 24th - Crimson Drops of Mercy had debuted at no. 3 on the WeedShare top 10 downloads list! This simple song broke into yet another secular indie music chart! Thanks so much for downloading and listening to my first major solo effort. Remember, Weed is currently giving away $5 to start buying music with, so please check out and consider picking up any of the growing list of songs available at ChristianWeed.com!
December 14, 2003 - I have teamed up with the WeedShare service as an Independent Content Producer (ICP), the first specializing in Christian music! If you're a Christian artist and rightsholder interested in sharing and marketing your music using this service, please visit my new website - ChristianWeed.com.
December 7, 2003 - Tonight Overtly Christian performed at a student youth revival in the Arnold High School gymnasium in Panama City Beach, FL (our first booking outside our local church!). God anointed our singing and playing, it was a great experience...thanks everyone for lifting us up in prayer! Other artists at the event included Neysa Troutt (who sang the national anthem) and the Hip Hop University from Niceville, FL.
