Why did I feel the need to write these songs?
I know it’s a cliché but I simply felt the need to give something back As a former music teacher who has experienced first hand the love of Jesus I wondered whether I could compose music which could enable us to celebrate the life of Jesus but in a slightly different way using a focus in music which is not new but which perhaps needs revival.
We all know that music can be an incredibly powerful medium. I prayed that God would both inspire and enable me to write music which was perhaps a little different from other praise and worship songs many of which have so incredibly inspired me.
Such is my growing passion for this God who had in His perfect time given my life renewed purpose that I began to listen even more intently to the messages at my local church each week and to make notes as I listened. I made a commitment to composing appealing, singable songs which hopefully would get stuck in your head but which more importantly embodied the sentiments of God’s Word.
With the patience and recording and editing expertise of Luke Hart from Tran Aqua Studios we went on to produce seven songs on both CD (for anyone) and a DVD (for churches during Offering etc) both of which include a Vocal and Instrumental versions and alternatively an Instrumental only version.
As each song unfolds on the DVD it features lyrics for singing on a screen enhanced largely by the most beautiful photography courtesy of Travis Easton Every CD jacket includes lyrics.
New Scripture Only Songs
In addition we have recently produced several scripture only songs with on-screen lyrics which I earnestly believe will be a blessing to all who hear them and which will I believe enhance even further our church worship.
Music can remind us constantly of the example of Jesus in our lives long after the spoken Sunday Message is forgotten. You may wish to introduce these new songs to your church and/or simply download them to your personal playlist for hours of enjoyment.
My prayer is that when you sing, reflect and share with others the sentiments within these songs you too will feel that you are more earnestly praising Him both as our Saviour and as our perfect role model
May these songs be a blessing to you
