ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on this project spans a time frame from around 1980 to 2013. During those 33 years, I had a chance to lead worship in a wide variety of church settings, and become choir director of four churches. At every point, I was encouraged to write new songs.

Many of those songs simply didn’t “fit” with the other vocal albums that I have produced, and I thought it was time that they be heard on a wider scale. These are not praise choruses that simply repeat, they are songs of praise. Some would serve as singalongs, and others as anthems. Should you be interested in using any of them in your own worship, please email me for licensing/reprint details:

_________________________________________________
All the tracks you are hearing were played and/or written by me. While some were accomplished using Finale Allegro, all the guitar and vocal tracks were done live. The guitars that I used were:
- Yamaha CXG171CC classical
- Martin 12-20 (12 string guitar with 6 strings)
- Yamaha SBG-200 solid body electric

Writing music has always been a passion. Melodies have always come easy to me, as you might have heard on any one of my 30 (or so) instrumental guitar releases. Words don’t come quite as easily– there have only been 7 vocal albums so far. Co-writing is a way to produce even more music.

One of my regular writing partners is Rev. Joseph Connolly, an extraordinary wordsmith. Sometimes he gives me complete lyrics, sometimes he only makes minor adjustments; and sometimes I borrow a repeated sermon topic (“It All Comes Down to This”). I have also included collaborations with Rev. Steve Tollander and songwriter Charles Resseguie.

The Psalms continually tell us to Praise the Lord! The phrase shows up in almost every book of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. It’s important. It’s also a fact that God does not need our praises. But they are requested of us, nonetheless, because they are an expression of our relationship with God.

I offer these 18 songs to you as well as to God. And may the God we praise be pleased.
