My first opportunity to have my songs recorded, distributed, and in the hands of worship leaders in churches abroad.
Singing and writing worship music has been a passion of mine for several years now. My dream has been for the songs the Lord gives me to one day be used by fellow christians in churches all over to praise the Lord. Recently God has opened a door to make that dream a reality. Back in July, I was encouraged by my wife to send in one of my songs to a christian publisher. I sent a copy of the song "Like A Child" to them fully expecting to hear nothing back as they receive hundreds of submissions a month. Well, last Wednesday I received a call from them while on the way home from work. I was expecting a "nice try" or "you aren't quite what we are looking for" or "the song was great but..." but instead by the grace of God, I was told that they loved the song, and offered me a recording and distribution contract. They were willing to invest over $35,000 to record, produce, market, and distribute an album of my music performed by me. After much prayer, discussing it with Jessica, and seeking Godly counsel, I have decided to sign with them. What does this mean? Well instead of them plopping down a bunch of money to fund everything and then a large percentage of the revenue from album sales going towards paying that off, they ask the artist to put down a $1,990 retainer fee which is returned after 2500 CD's are sold. A week or so after signing and putting down this fee, I will send in my material, which they will immediately start production work on. They are going to bring in professional musicians to lay down tracks to the songs. Approximately 3 months later I will travel to their studio to record and do a photo shoot. 3 to 6 months after that my first album will be complete and they will begin distribution. This includes itunes, Walmart.com andBestbuy.com. Hard copies will be sold in stores abroad as they see fit. This opportunity was unexpected and is an amazing chance to do what I love and was called to do. I would like to say thank you to those of you who have prayed for and supported me over the years. and a very special thank you to my biggest encourager, my helpmeet, and my best friend, my wife. And most importantly thanks to God who has given me the ability, desire, and now a new avenue to share my music.
