In The Studio

It's Midnight in the East, but it's only 11pm here in Nashville.  I woke up at 5am and drove up to Franklin, TN actually to meet up with Jason Ingram & Rusty Varenkamp to finally begin recording my third album!  The plan today was to meet up with three homies here in Nashville and record drums, bass and electric for 4 songs.  Jason Gregory played the bass, Ken Lewis played the drums and Adam Lester is currently playing guitar.  Adam came late because he had to fly in from Florida this morning.  Little Australian Rock Star.  He just finished a tour with Peter Frampton.  Adam and I met on the Bebo Norman Dreaming True Tour back in the Fall of 2006.  
Anyhow, these guys have recorded with Jason and Rusty before and so communication is second nature for them, and we jammed on these songs for a little before throwing down some tracks.  I think it's going to be a vibey little places.  and pretty big in others.  :)  I can tell you this much, the songs are going to keep in line with the songs you've already heard: they elevate God's Perfection and confess our need for him.  

So now it's very late (12:52am).  We're going to start up again tomorrow at 9, so it's time for some sleep.  The songs sound incredible, can't wait for you to hear them.

How do we get that "gasp" back? Be quiet....and listen to HIS voice...and HE will show you marvelous things in HIS universe, like what's behind the eyes of a child.

katitzu said...

So glad that you are making another album... :) Can't wait!!! Will be praying for you...

Wondering if you know when Jason Ingram is going to make another album... have been waiting patiently for YEARS for his next album to drop... Met him when I was in high school and he came to my church to play... 8 years later and still listen to his music.... Was sad that both he and Eli dropped off of the Christian Music scene several years back... Praying they both make their return soon. :)

Now who's the popular one? Definitely not me :)

I grew up in Union City...not Oil City, but very close, good memory.

That's really interesting about your song Watch Over Me and the Exodus 14 parallel. Who knew?!!

Enjoy your time in Nashville, do you know Barry Landis? He was just here where I work last Friday.
