Here’s the song I wrote for this months’ #TwentyFourteenProject song .. a call to worship of sorts. It’s a bit more rock ‘n’ roll than the past couple… (not that I really have the voice for this style). I still haven’t got the sync issues figured out. In Lightworks, it’s fine. The exported file is sometimes fine, and the youtube clip seems to be fine […]
One of the things which stops me quitting Facebook (as I have the frequent urge to do) is the Liturgy Fellowship group. I won’t wax lyrical about the group, but suffice it to say that I’ve come across a whole bunch of great resources from the other members, including, some great music, such as the new album from Jamie Brown’s church*, Falls Anglican Church. One […]
This is going to be one of the best worship albums to come out this year (I’m a sucker for those orchestral textures), and they’re giving it away for free! Check out the live videos too:
I have a bit of a request: can we please stop telling people who write songs for the church to be more creative? No, I don’t mean we encourage mediocrity, or stop encouraging creativity.

I know it’s bad blog-technique (blognique?) to post two posts back-to-back like this, but I don’t care. I forgot about two other great Noisetrade offers, and rather than update the previous post, I figured that they could have a post of their own. I blasted this all over my BookFace page a week or so ago: Zac Hicks (if you’re involved in sung worship ministry, […]
There’s always a ton of great (free!) stuff on Noisetrade (I’m so thankful, Derek Webb), so I figured I’d post about it.. One of my favourite worship songwriters, Matt Papa (he’s like what you might get if you put John Piper and Keith Green into a blender), has just released an Easter EP with some of his more recent songs, including the wonderful track ‘It […]
One of my aims this year is to develop a better discipline of songwriting, and so I aim to write a new song each month on this year. I’m calling it the #twentyfourteenproject. (Here is January’s song, in case you missed it) I think I’ll use it as a creative stimulus for working on recording, arranging and video editing skillz too, and hopefully I’ll be […]
