This song is so very special to me as it marks the end of one era in my music, and the beginning of another.

Each day, as I write, I find out more and more about myself - who do I want to be, and what do I stand for? When I sat down and wrote this song, I realized for the first time that at the very least, I want to write music that can encourage people. Now that doesn’t mean every song has to be super happy or have a moral and a story to it. There are sad songs for sad days just as there are happy songs for happy days.

“Lead the Way” is about taking it one day at a time. It’s a song about looking for a reason to smile when we can’t find one, and like most songs, it’s a song about love. So as you listen, I only ask that you take a moment to appreciate all of the little things that have made you into the unique and special individual you are today.
