Presence in the Mix
Quaker multi-instrumentalist Nate Macy has produced an album full of musical styles with lyrics rooted in the depths of the Christian mystics and Scripture. Steeped in contemplative practice, Presence in the Mix is an invitation to seeing God in all of life. Much of the content of the CD was created during Macy's time studying for a Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation, and the depth of that experience is reflected here. Macy creates his own virtual band playing guitar (acoustic and electric), bozouki (acoustic and electric), bass (upright and fretless), analog synth, organ, piano, lap steel, and trumpet. Joining Macy are several top notch musicians including Wendy Goodwin on violin and Dan Anthony on drums. The depth of musical experience and diversity of style combine to make a unique contribution to Christian Music today, deep meaningful lyrics and truly creative musicianship.
