David! I hope you are well. I have been busy . . . staying up too late and recording. I wanted to point you my latest concoction! The song is called "The Lord Goes Before You", its an encouragement and exhortation, written in place of a paper for my Old Testament course. Hope you enjoy it! You'll find it on my profile, the first song. Blessings, David. I look forward to connecting again soon! I haven't forgotten about your song . . .
I really like John Mark . . whoever you said. I am listening right now for the first time. Thank you for pointing me in his general direction!!!!!! My critical ear is always looking for music that moves me. How exciting. Thanks. I am looking forward to working with you!
About children . . .I have two girls. One is almost 7 and the other is almost two. They are a unique challenge everyday!!! That whole terrible two thing? Well, each year has its ups and many, many,many, "phases" that it would be nice to skip!
David, I have been listening this evening. I really appreciate the acoustic qualities of your music. Your melodies are really beautiful and memorable, but interesting. I can get really critical and bored sometimes with contemporary praise songs. I enjoyed "How You Bless Me" - listening to it made me thankful right along with you! I particularly like the lyrics of "Lord, You Amaze Me", especially the way you used the words "count" and "reach" in the first and second verses. I like to use similar techniques. Your songs bridge the gap between corporate praise songs and those that one would put on to listen to throughout their day. I think we are similar in that as well! In "No Other Name", I like the harmony line and the simple repetitive melody and lyrics in the beginning. Its perfect for singing along, and then the interest comes in the second part of the song satisfying the need for something more "meaty". I am super diggin' the chorus of "God of All the Earth". After listening to your melody lines and love of harmony, I am not surprised that you like my songs and I like yours! Bless you David. Please let me encourage you and help you out in any way that you think I may be able to! Do you have any songs that you feel stuck in at the moment? I am beginning to think about writing songs for children (that adults won't hate) that teach children how to follow Jesus and who God is and how He loves us and what He wants for us . . . Bless you, bless you,
Co-Writing sounds great! I will take some time soon to listen to you songs. I am a mom of two small children, so I never know when I'll get the chance to be at my computer, but I am sure it won;t be too long before I find a moment again!
Hey David...love "No Other Name" - Really chilled out groove that I just sat back and listened/worshiped with....great stuff! Love the phrase "How can we stay the same?" Great question when we're standing in His presence eh?
I am reading thru your comments I don't understand how you know all of this since I visited your church by getting directions off the website. I wanted to see how good you were since I have an opening at my church. The sound at your church is all wrong. It is not the sound person since I was just listening to you. You need to stick to acoustic guitar, and learn more about electric playing. It sounded like pure static coming out of your amp. What settings are you using? or do you even know what your doing.
Hi David, I hope you don't mind me commenting on here, as I am not a member of your group, I have just been listening to your song, and absolutely love it. I am singing it as I write, which to my mind is always a good sign. If a song can be picked up that quickly ,then it is fabulous for congregational worship. Loads of scope for harmonies and improvisation within a team and congregation. I love the chord runs in the bridge etc.etc.etc. I would most certainly use it. God Bless. Lorraine
