ASCENSION is a music project who's theme is loosely based around the Biblical 'psalms of ascent' (Psalms 120-134).
The Project. Based loosely upon the Biblical Songs of Ascent (Psalms 120-134), the songs of Ascension look to inspire the believer in his/her journey of worship 'up into' the Presence of God. "I believe that worship is a life-style, not just a set of songs we sing, and life is most definitely a journey. It's my hope that these songs help take us up a little farther along on our journey in God" ~Lemuel.
Lem is currently working with fellow musicians Curt Alexander, Dave Bleich and Debi Dees (all of whom were members of the band Present Ascent with Lem) arranging and prepping the songs. Plans are being laid to start recording this summer at THE RECORDING HOUSE located just north of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The Artist. Lemuel, who has been leading worship "for a very long time", loves music, loves singing, and loves engaging- both with God and with His people. He co-leads with his lovely wife Debi.
