Take Me Back to the River
My music has been carried and birthed from 4 decades of circumstances that have shaped who I am. My influences have always been from people who don't fit into the industry-driven blender, with little substance behind it. I seek truth and genuineness in worship, in people, and in me. I am moved by perfect strangers that have incredible life stories just as I am moved by people who think they have no life story. In that, is a story worth telling. I am shaped by my trials and the fires I've gone through. I write about the ebb and flows in my life when I danced despite the hurts, and the times I've fallen and failed and wanted to do nothing but hide away and be invisible. My music has become my transparent mirror. I don't hold back the words because I've finally learned it's ok to embrace my trials and mistakes and use them to minister to others who are going through the same. What I know is that God is good and God will never leave you, no matter what kind of mess you've made of your life, or things that have happened to you that are beyond your control. Music as a whole is about being different. Worship is about being one. I am both. My music really can't be boxed into a certain category at all. It includes symphonic orchestrations, lyrical dance, flowing with the Holy Spirit, instrumental and prophetic soaking, personal dedications, praise and worship, children's music, good old back porch folk, and there's much I still feel a burning to explore. I have no genre. I am what I am. For Take Me Back to the River, it is a reflective soaking journey to draw you more into His presence.
