Price Drop for CDs and downloads

I’ve reduced the prices of CDs and downloads at my webstore, added lyrics for all the tunes on Guardian Grace and set up a free download for anyone who signs up on the fan list.  Feel free to listen to full track streaming as well. My music is available on several online distributors, but my webstore is the only place where you can receive these reduced prices.

BTW – It’s great to be able to hear so much music online for free, but please support artists that you enjoy by purchasing their music and attending their shows. Don’t just “like” an artist; become a sponsor/patron if you want to hear more from them – especially independent artists.

Merry Christmas, help yourself to a FREE DOWNLOAD!

Check out my CD Freedom website for a free download of “Glory Glory” from my first CD, “Only One”. The mp3 will be free for the entire month of December, so make sure to share the link with any friends or family who have not yet heard my music.

Currently, “Guardian Grace” is out of stock on the website, but I just shipped a bunch to restock last week, so check back in a few days. If you live in St Louis or Chattanooga, there are plenty available for Christmas shopping from me directly or from my family in Tennessee. If you are desperate for a CD to ship asap, just send me an email, and I will get one in the mail.

Added Nov 30 3:09pm – Guardian Grace is back in stock on the CD Freedom site!

Romans 11 Doxology

I’m pretty excited about attempting my father’s song, “Romans 11 Doxology” this Sunday. Our pastors are preaching through Romans and we are in the general vicinity of that passage, so it’s a good time to use it. We actually tried it with our church in my first year in STL, but it was not the right time. The song is also featured in the recently published, “New City Fellowship Songbook Volume 1” that my dad put together. I want to make sure that we try out all the tunes in that book at NCF STL. We already do most of the songs in the songbook, so it’s just a few that I need to add to our repertoire. You can buy the NCF songbook from my dad’s website. (I aught to also mention that two of my songs are in it as well.)

Apparently, my friends in “The Distribution” perform a cover of “Romans 11 Doxology” in the clubs. That’s pretty cool, eh?

Tonight! Chesterfield Pres Concert

I came home at noon today (I’ve been pulling in a lot of extra hours this week) and found that my wife made me tacos for lunch including her legendary tortillas from scratch. We got to hang out in the yard mixing compost into the garden and planting the last 3 sprouts (I know it’s supposed to snow in STL this weekend.) I’ve had an exhuasting week of playing and it was so nice to hang with the fam and relax this afternoon. Now I have to take a shower (compost!) and get ready for the concert. I’m not sure how many people will be there, but my dad always taught me that no matter how many people come to your performance, you show them gratitude for taking the time to come out by performing at your highest level. I’m just glad for the opportunity to play my songs, especially because Ryan McMillan will be in the band with us. Ryan played most of the parts on Guardian Grace so his fingerprint is there on my CD. OK, let’s rock!!

My Refuge

This song was written to encapsulate a big part of the vision of New City Fellowship which reflects that commitment of God’s Kingdom to be a refuge for the fatherless, the alien, and the widow. The gospel of Jesus Christ is more than personal salvation, it’s a gospel about the restoration of the whole creation and a new world order of justice and mercy. Stylistically, I took this song in a soul/gospel/rock feel that is a kind of Staple Singers sitting in with the Beatles. Enjoy!

My Refuge

Chorus:
You’re my refuge
My refuge O Lord
You’re my refuge
In the midst of the storm
Though the mountains my fall
and the earth give way
You’ll still be my refuge
at the end of the day

Aliens and strangers
from across the lands
are here on our doorstep
living the best they can
Famine and warfare
corruption and greed
have made these people homeless
brothers and sisters in need
Lord you were my shelter
when I was a stranger too
now when I see injustice
I want to be a refuge like you

To Chorus

In the heart of the city
a young man is there
abandoned by his father
but nobody seems to care
everyday is a battle
a struggle to stay alive
he can’t trust nobody
if he wants to survive
Lord you were my Father
when I was an orphan too
now when I see injustice
I want to be a refuge like you

To Chorus

Lord you were arrested
and falsely accused
abandoned by your best friends
tortured and abused
willingly you suffered
and were killed on a tree
you endured this injustice
to save sinners like me
Lord you were my ransom
when I deserved to suffer too
you gave me your compassion
So I could be a refuge like you.

To Chorus

“My Refuge”
