🎉 To celebrate my recent 33rd birthday, and launch the next phase of my singer-songwriter BJSR, I released a new pop song that is very near and dear to me. “Journeyman” is a song I started writing over 10 years ago while at a Bob Dylan concert in Dayton, OH. It was 2009, right after I graduated college, and I was considering making music for a living. The economy was in free-fall, the music industry was imploding and I had an extremely expensive diploma and no idea how to use it. I remember thinking, “if this guy can do it...” 🤔 💭

🔂 Just goes to show you what a little optimism and perseverance can do for a person. Fast forward to right now where the internet has given me the opportunity to share a melody I’ve had stuck in my head for a decade (and would love to get stuck in yours).

📝 I originally started tracking and arranging the rhythm section in 2012 with Josh Gonzalez (drums), Jon Arnold (bass) and Joseph Barker(electric guitar, keys, production). In 2013 GO W/ THE FLOW really started to pop and Tori M Reynolds and I rode that wave around the country until we opened Speakeasy Yoga and I launched Journeyman Productions in 2016. - (

👨🏻‍💻 In November of 2017 I dove back into the projects with fresh ears and 5 years of tricks up our sleeves. We recorded vocals in April 2018 and have been mixing and refining all Summer and Fall with the help of my friends and mentors Ronnie Pinnell, Connor Smith, Chip ChristyDamon SinkEric SuttmanGlenn DavisDavid BeuthinBobby Trick and Dave Zup.

✌🏻Here’s to taking your time and enjoying the journey! 🌈

Don’t worry, Baby, If I don’t come home with no dime

Don’t worry, Baby, I’m going to do it next time.

Because I got the rhythm and you know I got the rhyme

I'm going to do it next time.

Because a Journeyman grows, Oh, a journeyman grows.

A Journeyman grows, and I’m a journey man.

I'm a jack of all trades, but I'm a master of none.

You might make more money, buddy, but you know I have more fun.

Because when I start something you know I’m going to get the job done.

Because a Journeyman shows, Oh, a journeyman shows.

A Journeyman shows, and I’m a journey man.

And I’ll take my time and I’ll take my chances on you

Over and over and again.

And I’ll take my time and I’ll take my chances on you

Im going to love you till the end.

Cus a Journeyman Knows, Oh, a journeyman knows.

A Journeyman knows, and I’m a journey man.

Only thing he don't know, is the next place he gonna go.
