A dark, red dirt rocker with bite, “Head Above Water” is an advice song Deck wrote for his son. Consistent with the album’s theme of gettin’ ahead in a gettin’ by world, the title track warns of the polarized nature of social media and the gimmicks of grifters while providing a hopeful path forward.

The album Head Above Water speaks to the blue-collar struggle of getting ahead in a getting by world. A former winner of the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival songwriting contest, Jared's songs of hard work and hard luck harken upon his own experiences and the lessons learned.

"I remind myself daily of three things: a strong person uplifts others, a smart person learns at every opportunity, and a kind person respects themselves enough to respect others. Life is a struggle, but as Dave Eggers put it, 'To struggle is to strengthen my faith, my hope, and my belief in humanity.' If I have any goal, it's that folks who value my songs also value the human stories that wrote them."

Jay Eric’s “Giddy Up” is a great uptempo, summer-fun Country song. Written by Texas’ David Banning along with Nashville’s Rory Feek, Reed Trontel and Jason Henke, this single celebrates cowgirls everywhere. It’s a clever sing-along composition riding on a great vocal. Can’t beat it!
