When The Snow Falls

When The Snow Falls

You may not know this, but two years ago I recorded a Christmas album. It’s a combination of Instrumental music, some traditional carols and a few original Christmas/Winter songs that I wrote. It was a lot of fun, and even more than that, it was therapy for me at a time when I really needed it. For me, the Studio is one of the few places where time seems to disappear and I can get lost in music.  

As you may know, I love Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year. I love Snow. I love looking at Christmas lights. I love it all. For all of my life I wanted to record an album and, as many of my friends and family know, I often said that my first album would be a Christmas one. Well, I’m so glad that it is.

There may be another Christmas album in the future. Actually, if I’m being honest, there will probably be a couple more. What I would actually like to do is record an all piano Christmas album. Then record an all vocal Christmas album. But for now, this album has a combination of it all on there!

You can purchase the album in one of two ways; either buy the digital download or order a physical CD that I will mail to you! Thank you so much for your support. Have a wonderful holiday season.

Everything To Me…

Everything To Me…

Our-FamilyOver the years, I’ve written a few songs for the love of my life. Today, she blessed me with a poem she wrote about our story. So I wanted to share our story through the songs I’ve written.

Our Wedding Day

This first song was one I wrote for our wedding day. I actually sang it for her in our wedding. I still feel that way too. And right now, I’m trying to keep doing what I said in that song: “More than words can ever say, I want to say “I Love You” with my life.”

Everything To Me

Another Valentine’s Day

Several years later, at a Valentine’s day dinner, I played “Everything to me” for her at a dinner our church was having. I also shared with her a new song I had just written her – and that’s the one below.

These Days

An Unsettled Valentine’s Day

A year after I had written that last song, we found ourselves in a very uncertain time of our lives. It was a time with a lot of questions that neither of us had the answers for. But, even during those times of uncertainty, we still knew the answer to one question:

Who?

All these years later (this is our 11th valentine’s day together – which I know is not that many compared to some), we’re still writing a new story with our lives. We’re traveling around the bends in the road of the game of life, adding little plastic people to the seats in the car. And while our people make more noise than the plastic people in the game, I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

Happy Valentine’s Day Bekki, I love you!

Recording and Composing Desk

For all of my career as a Worship Pastor and Songwriter, I’ve had this problem. There are tasks I need to do that don’t require my keyboard (piano) and there are others that don’t require my keyboard (computer). When I’m working on music I don’t always need the typing keyboard. When I’m typing I usually don’t need the piano keyboard.

But there’s never a very good place to put them when I’m not using them.

Also, there are times when inspiration strikes, and I need to be able to just turn around and record. If I have to get set up to do that, chances are pretty good the inspiration will wither before I get it down.

I was going to buy a desk, but then started looking and realized the cost was completely out of my reach.

So, I decided to build one. I’ve built plenty of other things, so decided it wouldn’t be a problem.

I did a lot of research on how others had designed their desks and how companies who sell them do it. Took all the ideas I liked from them and incorporated them into my design.

Then I figured out how to use google Sketchup. That wasn’t too hard, with all the videos they have.

So, there’s the end product of my designing. Now I just have to build it.

(This is what I hope my office kind of looks like when I’m done…)

Let me know what you think of it before I get too far into the building process!!!

Drive Time – Podcasts I’m listening to

Since my daughter hasn’t been in the car with me to and from church since school broke for summer, I’ve been getting back to listening to podcasts like crazy! It’s actually been quite enjoyable. I obviously love music, but it’s also fun to learn. So, I thought I’d share some of the podcasts I’ve been listening to with you!

The Home Recording Show

It’s a great, and very informative podcast on home recording. If you have any interest at all in recording you would definitely enjoy this podcast! (Plus, if you leave a comment, they might read it on their show!) It’s not a very clean podcast, so take that into consideration when you listen. If you can get past that, it’s worth the listen! They have a huge archive of shows that cover a plethora of useful topics.

Inside Home Recording

This is also a great show on recording. They’ve been around for a while, so there are a ton of useful episodes to listen to. They interview guests, and have guest co-hosts on a lot of the episodes which makes for an interesting listen.

 

Simply Recording Podcast

This is still a fairly new show when you consider the number of episodes some of the other podcasts have, but their content so far has been great! Plus, one of the hosts is Graham Cochrane of Therecordingrevolution.com, whom we were able to interview on the Worship Minsitry Catalyst podcast (Part 1 & Part 2).

 

SCOREcast

One of my dreams is to someday be able to do some composition work for film somewhere and in whatever fashion possible. I just happened to stumble onto this podcast, and have been enjoying the content. Their podcast is also full of samples of the composers’ work, which is very nice!

James MacDonald

Dr. MacDonald is one of my favorite preachers. He’s got amazing content, and is very engaging as a communicator.

Perry Noble Leadership Podcast

Perry is another favorite preacher of mine, but he’s also great in teaching on Leadership. Regardless of who you lead, it would be worth checking this out!

 

Learning with Leslie

This last podcast is a very informative podcast for those who are blogging and podcasting and want to know how to do it their absolute best. If you’ve been wanting to start a blog or podcast, check this out!

Home Tracked – A Great resource for recording tips

More and more worship leaders I know are getting into recording. Even if it’s just for recording practice cd’s or rough arrangements, or rough ideas of new songs, home/office recording is growing hugely. And while we can say that we just want to rough out an idea for a song, the perectionist in us still wants to do that perfect recording.

Well, here’s a resource that might help you achieve some better results. Des McKinney runs the blog, Home Tracked, and he  obviously knows what he’s talking about. He offers cheap solutions for some of the most common issues we face in recording at home, like a portable vocal booth and a list of free vocal plugins. It’s definitely worth your time.

I’d recommend you check out the following links:
