0 Started Work on New Worship CD


Well we finally did it and “broke ground” so to speak on the new worship project this morning! I am so excited to be working with my good friend Tim Miller on bringing these songs to life for the church to sing! For those who might not know Tim, he helped record and produce our church’s worship CD Athey Creek Christian Fellowship “Light”, and has been helping with the audio ministry at Athey Creek for many years. The goal of this project is to bring some of the original worship songs I’ve written over the years to the church in a congregational friendly way. We want people to be able to sing along with these songs and enter into the throne room with praise and thanksgiving! We are still finalizing which songs will be used and haven’t determined a title for the project yet; although, we are kicking around some ideas.

This morning we laid down scratch tracks for the following songs which you can find in my Worship Playlist on my YouTube channel:

Show Us Your Ways
I Will Sing of the Lord’s Great Love
Lord We Need You Now
Come to the Table
Psalm 5 (Sing for Joy)
In Heaven
Psalm 29 (Ascribe to the Lord)

I will keep you posted on progress as well as post some behind the scenes and in the studio footage when we get a chance to put some together. We would appreciate your prayers for this project that it would remain focused on bringing glory to God and that these songs would help lead others into worship.

0 New Single “Green (Live at Insomnia)”

Green (Live at Insomnia)

Release Date: July 31, 2015

We haven’t had the chance to get a good full-length live recording in awhile, so here is a live single of my song, “Green” from my CD Don’t Look Back. This song was recorded live 5 years ago on this same day, July 31, 2010 at Insomnia Coffee. I was joined by two of my good friends who accompanied me during the concert: Nick Garrett-Powell on lead guitar (he’s playing an acoustic run through some effects pedals), and Tanner Johnson on violin. Fans of the Dave Matthews Band will recognize some influence in this song.

Grass is greener on the other side
So they say, so they say, but I don’t trust it
Maybe if you’re looking through green glass
But flowers pass, they fade away before you know it
The moments all just fly by so fast
And then they’re gone away

0 New Single “Precious Is the Blood”

Precious Is the Blood

Release Date: March 26, 2013

Finally today we released “Precious Is The Blood” from the upcoming CD “White”. This song pays homage to the hymn “Nothing But The Blood”. It speaks to our thankfulness for the gift of the Cross and the shed blood of Jesus that can wash us clean and make us white as snow. Huge thanks to Nick Garrett-Powell for recording/producing this song as well as playing bass and percussion. Thanks to Tyler Geel for adding the great accordion and Amy Aldrete for her gorgeous voice!

How precious is the blood
That washes me, that crimson flood
Now I’m as white as freshly fallen snow
I am clean and forgiven
This I know

The colors of your love are plain to see
In the pure white wool of the lamb
That was slain for me
And the bright red blood
That was shed to wash away
All of my sin
Now you see me covered in
The shades of grace

Thanks again to the amazing Nick Garrett-Powell for producing, recording, playing organ, bass, electric guitar and singing harmonies. We were also joined on this song by the legendary Jim Sitter on drums, and the superbly talented Alex Goldman on violin, thanks, Jim & Alex!!

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18 NIV)
