I started playing guitar and writing songs with a friend at age 15. The two of us would travel around to Christian coffee houses and sing our songs. Over the years since then, I got involved with a legalistic and very toxic church group. And all through those years I slowly lost the passion for what I loved, which was God and music. I was very blessed to be delivered from this group and to be returned to my passion for God and to writing and playing music once again. In the past 5 years I have written about 60 songs expressing the freedom and life that I have been reunited with. God's powerful grace is the central focus of this project and also my appreciation for who He is. I now lead praise and worship at my church. Many of these songs were born from a hunger for new material to lead with. I also included an Instrumental (Ecclesiates 5) which is very contemplative - it leaves you wanting more. I am very excited about this project because of the hope that it speaks of. It is a great mix of music, ministry, and praise and worship songs.
