The band released their album, Ganging Up on the Sun, June 20, 2006. He later teamed up with k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang, co-producing and co-writing much of Sing It Loud.

On March 19, 2015, he released his second solo album, "Nightvision," along with three singles: "Burned Out," "Suitcase and Guitar," and "Wake My Heart." The release of "Nightvision" coincided with an installment of an ongoing live performance series "The Pisapia Love-In" in Nashville, TN.
