About this project

I want to finally record an album...

For most of my adult life, I've been writing and performing my music at coffee houses or my family's music extravaganzas, but I've never settled down to finalize and crystalize any of my songs. And now that I'm doing it, I don't want to do it half-committed like I have in the past.

It's humbling to realize that I've been critical in the past of people "following their dreams", all the while ignoring mine...

I want to share the music I've been writing since we moved to the Lofts. I think churches could sing these songs on Sunday mornings. I think we all need to be challenged in what we listen to. Challenged to turn back to God, and to begin living fully, loving deeply, and giving freely.

Because that's what this is all about right? Us encouraging one another, loving one another deeply (Phil. 2:3-4), and giving freely.

To those of you that don't know me personally, of course your support is GLADLY welcomed, but don't feel obligated to give. To my friends and family, I hope you can support me in this, and maybe, just maybe, we'll see something much greater than ourselves be birthed.

I love you guys, and I appreciate support in any way. If you'd be interested in praying for us through this, I'll put together an email list and send out ways you can pray for us.

For questions regarding the project or to be put on the prayer list, email me at: john@johnemerymusic.com

Thank you guys so much!
