The Release of Chapter 3: We Will Remember

Chapter 3

I’m excited to announce that Chapter 3 of the digital release of We Will Remember launches today and is available on all digital and streaming platforms! As we continue to follow the arc of the narrative of Joel, this is a pivotal turn. After the devastation of the plagues of locusts in the first half of the book, God finally declares his authority with great compassion and speaks these words, ‘Even now, return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.’ (Joel 2:12)

These particular songs were two of the more challenging to write… read more HERE!

Bambalela Released Digitally!

A couple years ago I had the great honor of recording a few of my friends who serve on Young Life staff in Africa. The goal was to record songs that their High School friends sing when they come to Young Life events - so we grabbed Alexis (Tanzania), Moges (Ethiopia), and Martin (Kenya) on their way back home from the states and in two days in the middle of an amazing ice storm that shut down the city of Nashville, we recorded these songs. I hope you enjoy the raw energy and spirit of worship in these guys! This was a fun one… and the recording captures it all! Spread the word with anyone who needs a little pick me up…

Guest on The Pivot Podcast

I had the privilege of being a guest on my friend and neighbor Andrew Osenga's podcast called The Pivot recently. We had an amazing conversation that I'd love for you to take a listen to... it's about my overall musical journey, and especially the last year, and writing the GATHER album. If you enjoy it please share the episode with friends and show Andrew some favor for his amazing endeavors.  Check out our conversation at Episode 24!

Two More Videos Added to YouTube!!

Someone once told me that 'kids these days' are listening to music through the Youtube's so in an effort to assist them, I've continued to work on pumping out more video content and I just released two new Official Lyric videos for songs of GATHER - Irreplaceable and Home. I hope you enjoy them and please share them with your community!

Sheet Music for songs!

I often get emails asking about how to play certain songs and so I made a few charts for some of the more popular songs off of GATHER and CITY MAKES THE MAN. The songs are Do Not Be Afraid and Gather and Beloved. You can find the charts HERE or go to the LISTEN page for each album and click on the LYRICS button. Thanks for sharing these songs...  

A conversation inside the Rabbit Room

To celebrate the release of GATHER I sat down with the very talented Drew Miller to hash out the making of this album and as he said, contemplating the re-writing of patterns. I hope you enjoy this sweet conversation! Enjoy the full conversation here!

Do Not Be Afraid Music Video Released!!

I'm so excited to release my first music video for a very important song... not only to me, but for our times today. I unexpectedly wrote this song on retreat in Siren, WI. while I was resting in the coming Advent season a couple years back and was struck by the strength and courage of Mary as she chose her response to the impending news of an unexpected birth. The angel spoke to her and she responded with leaning in and choosing to trust and not be afraid.... and that is my prayer with this song, in this time especially. I hope you enjoy it.... and please share with those who may find comfort in seeing it. Thanks!
