Dear Friends, 

Over the past four years we have been writing worship songs. We believe that God gave us these melodies and lyrics and we feel a responsibility to share them with his church. It’s been a blessing to know that God is using us and our music for his purposes and we feel the calling that God wants us to continue writing and sharing our music.

In 2012 we had the opportunity to record a handful of songs God that had laid on our hearts for his church. Now we have the great opportunity to enter into the studio again to record another album of songs for people to worship along to. 

The album will consist of a handful of brand new songs written over the last year as well as reworked versions of a few of our favorite songs from our Still EP.

The recording will take place between Austin, TX and Cleveland, OH over the months of December and January. Our hope is to release this album in April 2015.

We're also very excited and honored to have this album produced by fellow worship leader and songwriter, Robbie Seay. Robbie has released 7 albums including the critically acclaimed 2007 release "Give Yourself Away." Songs from these recordings have been featured in multiple TV shows and movies including American Idol, One Tree Hill & numerous shows on the ABC network. 

The total budget for this album is approximately $16,000. This includes travel, hiring musicians and engineers, mixing and mastering along with CD production. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through kickstarter and the remaining cost through other means after the kickstarter is funded. 

Being independent musicians, it’s up to us to finance the production of our music. This is actually a great benefit because we can partner with our friends, family and fans and offer some great incentives for supporting our worship ministry. You can choose a pledge amount from the right side of the page and help us make this worship album come to life. Along the way, we'll share demos and the stories of the songs that will be the basis for this record.
