Album Notes
Step Out is latest album of gospel songs by EK Bruhn. Seven new songs and traditional gospel songs. Listen several times. They will grow on you.
"Step Out" was inspired by a series of sermons by Dr. Susan Ventura at the Francis Street First United Methodist Church in St. Joseph, Missouri. One week was about courage and another week was on faith. EK sang the song as a special using courage one week and then sang the same song with faith. The end result was combination of both ideas. The line of Samson facing all the lions-refers to him killing the young lion in scriptures but also is referring to him facing the "lions" (his enemies).
Peter had the faith to step out but then facing the waves had doubts and had to reach for Jesus. Many of us face this concept when we step out. The song is an encouragement to all members of the body of Christ to step out in faith and courage to see His path, hear His Word, and be His Kingdom. This song is a blessing.
"Who is this?" Again inspired by a sermon topic (Dr. Susan Ventura) on the week of Passover and Jesus entry to Jerusalem. Taken from scriptures for the verse. The Chorus is the cry of the King is coming. The ending bridge theme is looking at the questions being asked by the leaders "Who is this?".
"Trust in the Lord" is from Proverbs-Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Ek was playing guitar for the contemporary service at the Methodist church and wrote this song for a contest. He did not win the contest but received a blessing in this song. He released his first video on you tube playing this song on guitar and singing when he first wrote it. Was embarrassed because he turned on the camera and had no idea that the song would be created in that take. Sounds great with just the guitar part.
For the album he added keyboards, drums, and a programmed flute/background with two different styles of percussion tracks. Was a nice variance for the arrangement.

EK had fun playing and singing "Blessed Assurance" in a jazzy laid back style. Just live singing and playing piano parts. Added just a touch of percussion and bass.
"Standing on the Promises" became a nice tent revival version with piano and organ over the percussion/bass. Ek sings out.
"I have decided to follow Jesus". EK always liked this song and was going to add guitar but it had some nice tent revival dynamics as it was played on keyboards. Nice change at the end going to the 60s drum beat and bass line that gives some extra drive. This song was originally attributed to S. Sundar Singh using the words over a traditional Indian tune. He was being prosecuted for being a Christian. His wife was killed and it is reported that he was singing, " I have decided to follow Jesus" as he was killed. In 1959 the song was reborn by being sung at Billy Graham crusades.
"Enter His Gates" was written in 2010 as a worship song for the Harvester Church in Cameron Missouri. Words inspired by sermons of Alan Needham and Ed Siebolt. EK always liked the influence of the Jewish chords and style of music from worship in the 60s-90s. Song has been played at several churches now and youth and congregation have responded well taking part in the actions of the verses.
"Searching" was recorded in studio at some point in the past. The concept is about the people who are searching for the God in the upper stratosphere, far removed from the real everyday life of people. Jesus was here among the "plain living population". At times Jesus is talking. Here is where the light died, to give the least rebirth....ends in the continued echo and repetition necessary to keep reminding people that We are here for the least of these.......
"Bloom where you are planted" Morris Passmore had the words/poems. EK took these short verses and made a chorus. Was recorded in studio at some point. The vocal was really mixed low so 2016 version has multiple voices to increase volume and then a little flute run was put in and yes two bird calls. This song was one of first videos made with pictures and words. To date has been the most popular and most played song by EK and Morris.
"The Christian promise" originally recorded in 1973 on the Open Door Album -"Which Way to nowhere?" Ek played guitar and there was bass part. Kristen Karrenbrock sang with EK for the two years in the "Maranatha" campus coffeehouse in Enid, Oklahoma and then traveled to five states singing as the Open Door. This song was originally called the "Christian Curse" with the idea that all Christians are called to go out and share the Good News until everyone hears. There were some ideas that God does not curse us to do this. So it became the Christian Promise. "May God's love never set you free. Keep you burning until that day. When Christ will come to claim us all, who have followed in his Way." "May your soul never be at peace, while there is any love left to share."
EK released Which Way to nowhere album 1973.
"Brother Keith" was a cassette album made in 1986 but only given to family and friends.
Some country singles, disco, and folk/rock recordings have been released over the years.

Wonderful talent
Love this CD, well arranged and love how you can hear the words over the music. I really like the collage of songs. I especially love his newest song Step Out. Also, "I have decided to follow Jesus", Bloom Where you are Planted....it is just very hard to choose as they are all wonderful. He truly is a great and talented musician who I have been a fan of his for many years. One of the best musicians around.


Artist who likes his songs
Many artists don't like to listen to their songs. Sad. True if you listen for mistakes and to be critical it is depressing. I am happy with the gift of singing, playing, and songs. I have played these constantly-they grow on you the more you listen (if this is your style and type of music). Hope you try some of the songs. Blessings.
