My name is Jimmy Ward. I’m a worship leader from Sacramento California. I’ve had the absolute pleasure of leading worship every Sunday morning at Warehouse Christian Ministries for the past 2+ years now. I’ve just recently finished my debut worship album called “Home" and I was just hoping to get some feedback from other worship folks. The idea behind the record was to put together a collection of originals, covers, and hymns that represent me as a worship leader. When I started leading worship full-time at WCM I immediately started recording the music that I brought to the congregation every Sunday. They are songs that I am passionate about and my hope is that the passion translated onto the record.
Instrumentation and production wise, I really wanted to stick to guitars only. So I used 4-5 different guitars and amps. I played swells and lines to fill up the space instead of using keys for pads. I wanted it to be atmospheric and textured without being too spacey and dark. I wanted to create an experience. Anyway, let me know what you think. If you like it, email me(jimmywardmusic at gmail.com) or get in touch with me here or on my other social media sites and I'll give you a free code to download the record. I’m really looking forward to connecting to other worship leaders and musicians here!
