Three years ago we sat down in a room and agreed to set all 150 Psalms to music.
We knew it would be hard. We knew it might take a long time. But we believed it was worth it.
We wrote our first volume of Psalms, launched a Kickstarter, and God blessed it. A year later we came back with another ten psalms, and another Kickstarter, and God (and you) came through for us again.
Now we're back with Psalms 21-30.
The songs God has given us have been sung not just across the country, but across the world. We've heard from Oregon and Scotland and California and South Carolina and Argentina, all from God's people who have been blessed by the work we're doing.
AND we're getting opportunities now to go and play these songs across the country and lead people in singing the songs of David.
We need your help now more than ever. We're back with ten new Psalms—ready to record. But this time we have even bigger hurdles to navigate.
The work we do as a band hasn't stopped growing. But life hasn't slowed down, either. Jody and Philip are full-time pastors. Andrew runs his own growing business. And we all have families.
More and more, we feel the pressure of churning out so many songs so quickly, and doing it all in-house, with makeshift equipment and space.
Many of our fans and friends have encouraged us to take our work into the studio, where we can not only save time and energy, but improve what we're able to produce. We've been nervous about this because studios cost money. So some of them decided to pay for us to have two days in the studio with a produce/engineer to see if it would be worth it.
So was it worth it? You decide:
Pretty cool, right? And, we were able to do in two days what would have normally taken two weeks, and a lot more backbreaking busywork.
Suffice to say, the studio experiment more than proved itself as a great way to cut down on busy work and hours away from our families. And we were pleased with the results. In order to stay sane and be able to give our lives to our (many) non-My-Soul-Among-Lions responsibilities, our plan is to take this whole album into the studio.
Not that we're complaining about the work we've had to do in the past. But if we're going to be able to keep this up, we need even more help on this volume than in volumes past.
So we've raised the bar. The goal is set at $25K to help us get Vol. 3 Psalms 21–30 recorded, mixed, mastered, and ready to go.
This project has been such a blessing to each of us. We believe these songs were meant to be sung by God's people, and God has proved it to us many times over as He has worked in our lives and in our church as we have written and performed them.
We know we're just a small part of the work God has been doing over centuries. Our desire is to stand with our fathers in the faith, the godly psalter composers of the past, and our brothers around the country who are bringing the psalms to life in fresh ways for God's people.
Would you consider how you can partner with us in this work?
We believe this is God's calling on our lives, and we're excited to get this next installment in your hands.
So check out the sweet rewards, pledge your amount today, and we’ll send you a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Forsaken Me (Psalm 22).”
Risks and challenges
This is our third go around, and thanks to the generous help of others, we’ve been able to test what it’s going to be like to get into the studio. We’ve never been more confident that we can pull off a project, and we believe that if the Lord allows and we get fully funded we’ll be in a better position to meet your expectations than ever.
That said, God is the Lord, and our best laid plans are only plans. There may be something unforeseen or catastrophic that happens. There may be hitches in the process of getting in and out of a studio that we are not able to foresee, still being relatively new to it all. These are the risks we run, and we promise we will do our best to overcome all the challenges we face.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
