We are heading into the studio at the end of July to record our first album! Music and songwriting make us COME ALIVE and it has been a dream of ours for years to do this. Our friend Andre Antonio will be producing, and we are so excited to create with our friends Colin Trask, Kenny Rahn, and many others. So many of you have been a part of our journey and we can't wait to share the songs and sounds that have come out of these past few years.
God is the most loving, kind, and faithful Person we've ever met, and we love pouring out thankfulness and praise to Him for Who He is for us. There is nothing like beholding God in all of His glorious goodness and then breathing back praise. He has been so good to us- better than we could ever have imagined, and the songs we've written come from encounters that we've had with Him. They all carry the message that our Father is outrageously good, His affection for us is endless, and we are His beloved children. Our heart is to revel in His love and His presence, to rest and enjoy Him, and then respond to His outrageous love and lavish Him back! The heartbeat of our praise is one of mutual enjoyment; His enjoyment of us, and our enjoyment of Him.
Recording this album is our way of setting up landmarks in places where we’ve had encounters with Jesus. We want to record 8-10 songs all within the span of 3 weeks. In those weeks we want to capture the bare bones of our songs live- this will give God space to be Himself and take us deep into His heart. It will also give us space to go passed the script of our songs and to lavish Him in beautiful ways. We are so looking forward to crafting an album that captures the tone of our relationship with Jesus.
Our sound is one of rest. The music and voices may get loud, but our hearts are always at rest in God's wonderful love. Our sound is one of thankfulness. Our hearts bleed thankfulness to Him for Who He is and for what He has done. Our sound is one of delight. We love reveling in the moment - not rushing the experience we are sharing with Him and one another. These songs will take you along with us on this journey with our Jesus.
We are so excited to partner with you guys! We are in need of $16,500 to complete this project. This will cover the costs of recording, mixing, mastering, musicians, and CD artwork & printing.
As we said before, many of you have been a huge part of our journey, and we are so thankful for the love and support you have shown us along the way. For those of you who we don't yet know, thank you so much for believing in and partnering with us!

Risks and challenges
Our desire is to do as much as we can of the album within the span of 3 weeks. This is exciting, AND CRAZY! It's quite a limited amount of time, but we are confident that we'll be able to do the majority of the recording in this timeframe! We are actually stoked about the challenge that it presents.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
