So much has changed since the last time I updated you guys. I moved houses, became a full time student, watched multiple close friends get married; I even went on sabbatical. Almost nothing is the same. But as we close down this year to remember - for better or worse - I can look back and be thankful for a lot. The LORD provides beyond our capability to understand. Also, new music will be in your ears soon; but in the meantime, I'll be posting my top albums of the year next month. The list might surprise you. Stay safe and well, friends. - AMA

The online indie-reviewer Jesus Freak Hideout reviewed my full-length album and also interviewed me! It was an enjoyable process, and if you're interested you can read the whole thing here. Thanks, JFH!  - AMA

Now that we're all quarantined, I've begun hard work on a new album. There's no timetable for it, but I'm very excited for what it might become. On top of that, my progressive-rock side project Abtenauer is about ready to record its debut album. My band mates Austin, Daniel and myself are all super pumped for what it might become. Stay tuned... and stay safe.  - AMA
