Music is one of the greatest gifts God has given us. It's through music that I've always found a way to personally connect with Jesus and say what is on my heart. It's crazy to me, that God has allowed me to use this passion of mine as a platform to help people have an encounter with God. My hope, whenever I'm able to sing of God's grandeur, is that people would see Jesus, remember what He's already done for us, and hold on to what the Word of God says He has promised for us.
I'm entering a season of my life, after almost ten years of having the opportunity to lead worship, where I believe God is giving me to the green light to sing the songs He's been placing on my heart. Though I've always been one to use music as a way to pray to Jesus, it wasn't until this past fall of 2014, that I received the peace to chase a dream.
There have been so many songs and bands that have brought me to a special place with Jesus such as Hillsong, Bethany Worship, Bethel, Elevation, Phil Wickham, Shane and Shane, to name a few. My prayer and heart is that hopefully, through a song God has allowed me to write, someone else may have a special moment with the Creator of the universe.
Over the next 40 days, I'm attempting to make this dream I've had, to record a worship EP, a reality. But, I can't do it without your help! My goal is to raise $6,000 by mid-April. That money would cover everything from studio time, to paying musicians, duplicating music, mixing and mastering, and even postage!
If I'm able to reach my goal, I will have the opportunity to record my EP at Soundmine Recording Studios in Marshall Creeks, PA.
I'm also blessed to be working alongside of my good friend, Filipe Michael Mora. He's truly one of the most humble guys I know and has a heart for Jesus and seeing the church move closer to God through the art of music and attitude of worship. You can check out some of his info at:
No joke. Thank you for taking the time to check out my kickstarter page. It means more than you know to me, that you would spend your time reading/hearing about one of my passions. To all my family and friends, thank you for encouraging me and speaking life into me when I felt like God could never use me. I truly wouldn't be here without you in my life!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge to recording this EP will be that I'm recording in Northeast PA, but I live in Central OH. One of the reasons I know this won't be an issue is because I'm working with a great producer who is setting me up to walk into the studio completely prepared.
What most artists will do, is walk into a studio having a song written out with a general structure. What they don't typically have, is the song produced with what sounds they want, or hooks, or all the other little things that make a song it's character. Filipe will be helping me by pre-producing the entire EP so we can record the entire thing all in one shot.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
