I am raising funds to record and produce an album of songs intended for congregational singing as well as for personal and family use. The plan is for 10 full songs and another 5 or so pieces of service music. In addition to the local congregation, I already have multiple talented people lined up to play, sing, produce, and engineer the project. The majority of the recording will take place in late spring and early summer with the vocal tracks finished by early fall.
Kickstarter money will be used to: hire a musician or two, recording equipment, recording space, engineering and mixing, sleeve design, CD production.
Following are some Testimonials for my first CD, My Cry Ascends—New Parish Psalms:
- "I was struck that lyrics written centuries ago would bring me to tears more than once - what profound evidence of God's transcendent glory and the inspiration behind these songs! I cannot overstate the blessing this album has been." Eric, Germany
- "…roughly two years later, my family and I continue to listen and to sing these pieces. What a joy to hear one's children singing the Psalms! Thank you so much…" Jenni, South Carolina
- "What separates this music from so much contemporary Christian music is that it is so rich, both in lyrics AND music. The tunes are so evocative that they make lyrics easy to remember." Nancy, Virginia
- "Thank you for pointing us to Christ with this CD! The combination of solid, inspiring texts with the gorgeous settings is a daily blessing in my life."Jeremiah, South Carolina
- "We have four children and found this CD to quickly grab their attention and become a family sing-a-long while we're riding in the car, from the youngest to the oldest." Edward, Florida
