Amazing Team of Professional Musicians
God's been really shaping and molding me this past year. At times it's brought me to my knees confessing my need for Him. Other times, it's filled me with joyful tears. In all of it, it's filled me with songs, but I had no intention of doing anything with those songs. I wasn't finishing them. I wasn't prioritizing them. And I certainly wasn't planning to put a project together. But then, through a need on Sunday, I Can't Stay Here emerged and we recorded it. The fact that it's been so impactful has honestly been a little humbling and surprising, but at the same time, I've felt God using it to challenge me: To finish my songs and make them everything they can be. My prayer and hope is that these songs would find there way into homes, offices, cars, bedrooms, classrooms, and workplaces where they will play a part in someone's story. Think about it: years from now, when someone tells their story, one of these songs could be a part of that story.
I'm humbled and, at the same time, incredibly excited about the team I have working on this project. Robby Lattimore will be playing bass and producing the project. He's a close friend who I've know for years and one of the most talented musicians I know. Not many people in the industry match his attention to detail and his ability to help songs become what they can and should be. Robby has assembled a team that plays and mixes regularly for artists such as Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, and David Crowder. Some of the best people in the industry will have their hands on these songs, and I couldn't be more excited. I have full confidence that this team will take these songs and make them all that they could and should be.
Let's be clear on 3 things:
1 - We are making this thing right.
2 - We are getting a great deal.
3 - The bulk of the money goes toward what matters: the music.
Here is a breakdown of where the $12,000 goes:
All donations are 100% tax deductible
$12,000 --> This will fund recording the album and fulfilling rewards
$12,000-15,000 --> Padding for trip expenses and small promotional budget
$15,000-20,000 --> Allows us to record videos for youtube promotion.
