It Is What It Is

“It is What it is” can be viewed as a collection of 12 original songs. Some will have different interpretations of this album as well as it should be. But in the end one can either take it or leave it because after all, it is what it is.

These songs and this record convey an honesty and sincerity that we rarely see these days. And, in the tradition of greats like Tom Petty, the quality of the arrangements and production are superb. Also in the tradition of great rock records, you have songs that are serious and heartfelt balanced with songs that are just plain fun! It’s a pleasure to listen to…Tim Pierce

The Experiment

The making of this album was a real experiment! At the onset of making this album I had no idea how this album would actually sound. The artists and musicians that played on this project helped turn the finished product into something I am very proud of.
