I recently had the opportunity to lead worship for our church in Encinitas. It was truly a blessing and challenge for someone who is used to mainly just accompanying! I had my work cut out for me with the great team I had alongside me, and I was humbled and blessed by the experience.
As I was working on arranging the set list for the service I was inspired to try a different approach to one of my favorite hymns, Nothing But The Blood. I have further ideas for the arrangement and hopes for a recording someday, but here’s my first swing at it with the team. I would love some thoughts and feedback!
Been digging around in my archives lately and uploading some tracks (mostly instrumental) to Soundcloud. Listen to “Men As Trees Walking” below and please follow me on facebook or twitter for more frequent updates!
Please let me know what you think in the comments!
Even though these days I am (sadly!) far and away from Desert Springs Church (where I served for several years in music ministry), I am still honored to have been included in their second volume of original Psalm songs, releasing on March 8th!
To promote this release, DSC is giving Vo. 1 away for FREE! Please watch the video below for the promo code to download and look for the second volume (featuring a more rockin’ version of my Psalm 23).
Digging around in my “archives,” I came across this off-the-cuff cover of “Wonderful, Merciful, Savior,” I recorded back in 2007 with two vocalist colleagues of mine, Samantha (Pedigo) Kadzban, and Lindsey Johnson.
We all sang and played together in the chapel praise band at Hope College. Sometimes, after a rehearsal, we would have Dimnent chapel to ourselves and would lift our voices a capella into the rafters of that beautiful place, worshipping the Lord in song together.
Those moments were precious, and the memories are priceless to me. There are very few things in life that move me more than voices mingled in harmony. The more you sing together with someone, the more you learn each other’s voices, follow each other more closely, blend more intricately. That is what often happened singing with these gals.
You can now listen and download our version for FREE on bandcamp, or find it on SoundCloud.
