Fresh Start

Hey friends,

It's been a little while since we've been able to update you, and we've definitely got a lot to catch up on.

In the last couple of weeks, Sam's been pursuing a huge opportunity that's been placed in his lap. It's been really exciting to see things unfold with that, but he's had to make the tough decision to step down from the band to put things in order. We've really accomplished incredible things together, and while he's stepping down, we're both excited for what lies ahead and collaborating together in new ways.

With that said, I'll be taking the reigns with Rival Summers moving forward like I did in the beginning. This band has seen so many forms, and it has constantly inspired me to see how each season has brought new life and new growth. I really believe I'm in the greatest chapter of my life, and I'm so excited to continue to share this with this community. This family we've built together over the past eight years. Rival Summers has always been about sharing life and growing in community, so I can't wait to witness the incredible things we'll do together from here.


The first show I ever played under the name Rival Summers was at a place called AJ's Cafe in Downtown Ferndale. It's only fitting that we come back to where it all started in this season. We're going to be playing at The Loving Touch in Ferndale on July 29 with our friends Ellis, The True Blue, and Shiny Penny.


The future is bright, and I'm so proud to be standing where I am. So here's to what's ahead and where we're going together.
