new cd coming soon – you can pre-order it now

Posted by on Jun 27, 2011

Wednesday is the last recording session for the new CD… then it’s on to mixing and mastering, design work and manufacturing…

The CD is available for pre-purchase (at a crazy low price for multiple copies) here. Pre-purchasing the record helps to fund it “up front” (much appreciated!), guarantees that you receive the first copies (aiming to have it ready by the end of August), and by pre-ordering multiple copies you can help to spread the word and get this music into as many hands and homes and hearts as possible.

This is my fifth album of “songs of faith for small and tall” and I’m very excited about it! Where my last CD (A New Heart – 2009) was probably my most ambitious recording to date in terms of instrumentation and arrangements, this album has a more “stripped down” and rootsy acoustic approach. Singing scripture in new ways, these are songs that help us to explore and internalize how we are part of the ongoing story of what God is doing in the world. From the blistering bluegrass tune “New World Coming” to the evocative “Make Room”… from the playful “Detectives of Divinity” to the stark “Lofty Words”… from the fun sing-along “Fruit of the Spirit” to the vivid storytelling of “Take Heart,” this is a collection of songs that bring us face to face with the realities of our day-to-day life in light of the scriptural story, in a way that gets “small and tall” singing and talking and laughing and praying together.

Scheduled for release in August. Available for pre-purchase now –
