NEW "Live" Recording from Heritage Park.
I finally finished my NEW record. It only took me 1,460 days of walking through some of the toughest roads this life has to offer. I take full ownership for the tardiness of this music. Song writing has always been a compass for me. Music always finds me at the right time, right place, and in the right way. Just like that “Message in a Bottle” the great theologian Sting wrote about so long ago when big hair, spandex, and leg warmers rampant. This new album is a “LIVE Recording” birthed by an opportunity we had to love on our city. I’m so very thankful for my family at Evergreen Christian Community who are learning with me how to be hands and feet to the people around us. So on a beautiful Pacific Northwest night at Heritage Park in the historic downtown of Olympia Washington with hundreds of other folks we put pause on life for a couple of hours. The evening was spontaneously transparent and musically magical. My favorite Tech-Nerd Duke DeJong showed his genius in capturing some exquisite moments and once again exposed why I’m so thankful for him. My good friends Jimmy Lee from Atlanta, Paul Kakac from the Mile High City, Matt Podschweit from Colorado Springs all flew in and collided with my Oly brothers Steven Reamer, Kevin Allen, Steve Roseborouh, and the extremely talented & only female ShaeLee Haglund. The collaboration of musical wisdom, culture, and heart was a privilege for me to attend. There are 14 tracks on this disc. I covered two of my favorite songs, by two of my favorite writers, Shawn Mullins “Lullaby” and Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues. 4 tunes that I re-arranged to my liking from previous CD’s, and 8 brand new tunes that finally found there way into the world. So, I want you to consider buying this new album for five reasons: 1. It will take you to hopeful places. 2. The musicality from these players if flat amazing. 3. It will change the way you see the world. 4. It sounds nothing like KLOVE. 5. I need the money or my kids won’t eat, just kidding… kinda.
