Christ in Me
This album is a collection of beautifully crafted melodies that took shape after years of pondering and meditating on some of my most favorite Biblical texts. These songs were meant to be sung - not just listened to. As a music minister, I have lead worshipers through many genres of Christian music and have learned what makes an interesting and singable melody. I love how music is a gateway that transports us into a receptive place and spirit that opens us to receive from the Holy Spirit the meaning sometimes hidden within Biblical texts. The Psalms, for example, were designed to be sung! Not only that, music provides an emotional backdrop that enhances the message. As a composer and instrumentalist, I'm eclectic in my tastes of styles and textures. I enjoy a wide variety of musical styles: from delicate piano to grinding guitar, from soulful soliloquy to epic orchestra. Whatever interpretation best relays the meaning of the text can be used. I love the versatility of orchestral strings!! and it all depends on the mood of the song. Would the text lend itself to a large production, or a simple and intimate delivery? It's all about the story found in the text and making it real. Already started on my next project and I can't wait to get back to it!
