The Making Of "Even There"

Release Date? And Other Pertinent Stuff. 

 Well as many of you know we had to push our release date back a few days. Official date now is Wednesday July 6th here at Messiah College in Grantham, PA. We did this so that we could be sure and get the "first ones out of the box" to our givers! Right now I have large padded envelopes laid out in the living area of the apt. with signed photos, CDs, and letters on top of each one, waiting for Mark to sign them (the rest of us got it finished yesterday but he's slow, and I may find myself forging his…Read more

"Even There" Trouble and Miracles 

 We’ve had a pretty crazy two weeks! I got sick with the stomach flu and after being up all night sick, had a concert to do the following evening. God’s miraculous grace made me strong enough to do the entire concert (I was sure I’d only be able to do 1 or 2 songs). I went back to bed soon after feeling very ill.

We went to a campground to rest, but ended up recording, and doing last minute photo shoots for the cover art as we found out the art work from the album was not coming, and the last two songs…Read more

In the Midst of the Storm! 

 We have been going through “A Shepherd Looks at Ps. 23” together, and really enjoying it. So far we have only covered “The Lord is my Shepherd” and “I shall not want”. It never ceases to amaze me that when we really meditate on the scriptures, even the simplest phrase becomes profound. Just looking at the first statement for example, you may ask yourself, “What is a shepherd?” “What does a shepherd do?” Yeshua said, “I am the good shepherd.” Sometimes it is difficult to have real understanding of what…Read more

We Have a Release Date! 

 We are getting closer to a finished album! The title will be “Even There” from Psalm 139 as in, “…even there Your hand will lead me”. We are starting to get mixes from the studio to listen to, and give input. They are sounding amazing! We will be sharing a taste of these here on our website, so be sure to visit often to see what’s new.  Right now we have a sound sample of the song “Fall on Your Knees” up with a story of how the song came to be, and the lyrics. We’ll put up a song a week, from now until…Read more

The End is in Sight! 

It's about time I gave you an update on where we are at, and what’s been happening with the album project. There were a couple of songs that we didn’t feel were where we wanted them musically. They didn't feel "finished". We were to be in Asheville, NC which was three hours from Knoxville, so we called our producer and asked him if we could come and spend a couple of days working on these songs.

We had the usual warfare; a breakdown, and delays, but we persevered and are so glad that we did so. We now feel…Read more

Zemer Levav ~ Even There ~ Your hand will lead me 

This Album calls believers to prayer and spiritual warfare, as well as offering comfort, hope, and strength to those who are weak or wounded.

It will strengthen, exhort, and remind the believer, who they are in Messiah, how precious they are to God, and that God is going before us into every battle.

Finally moving forward again! 

 Shalom Friends and Family,
I pray that you are well, blessed, and hungering for God’s word and righteousness.

I wanted to give you another update on the album. It has been awhile and there really has been nothing to report until now. Leonardo will be starting the mixdown process this month. We’ll have usable tracks for two more of the songs soon, and will add them to our new set for our Spring tour beginning in March.

We are getting ready to head for the Carolinas. The weekend after next we will be in…Read more

The Waiting, the praying, the fundraising! 

It's been awhile since I've been able to add another post to this blog! We've spent the last three weeks with various family members in California and Nevada. In between concerts, that is! So it was too busy to get here to add anything else.

Right now we are waiting and praying. We have one song that I'm concerned about, that I want to build so that it has a high point and gets strong in the bridge, but the instrumentation just didn't come together for it in the studio. I wanted something specific and it…Read more

So What's Up? And How's the Album Going? 

 I will be posting news about our week recording in Utica over the next few days, so check back! We are recovering from all night Messiah Conference fun today and then visiting Liorah in Philly and dropping girls off in NYC. Natanyah is flying solo to Memphis to visit a close friend there, and then Mark and I are heading to Maine for a much needed 2 weeks of husband and wife time.

The Busy-ness Business! 

 Hey everyone, I've had such a busy week trying to get everything lined up for the first two weeks of recording! Got hotel rooms and cabins confirmed and my Uncle's flight booked. It feels very good to have that much out of the way. We're still trying to get all the music arranged the way we want it and once we get that squared away we can be somewhat flexible with them in the studio. You can't flex from nothing though so it's important to have a structure to begin with.

Les and Darcy Morrison are in…Read more
