Creator God | Robb and Ruth

We answered a question no one was asking. What would Creator God by Becky and Chris Drake sound like if Bowling For Soup covered it? it was for a Sunday Morning online Harvest service so I didn’t mix it to be very heavy.

Hope you like it.

Send the Fire | Metanoia

SEND THE FIRE!!

Lockdown has given us the impetus to do some serious recording. With a heavy live gigging schedule with both Silverthorn and Metanoia, Ruth and I talk about “finding the time to record” but in reality, you need an extended period of time to do it.

This week we took our favourite hymn* and did a full on Metanoia production of it.

With a distinct lack of drummers in our house, we created them from scratch ourselves one afternoon in software. Then guitars, bass and vocals and the addition of a crowd shouting faintly in the background.

I think we successfully channeled the spirit of Britain in 1977.

We’ve been talking on messenger about our next lockdown project. We think we can work out how to get CJ on drums and Bex singing backing vocals all through the power of the internet. Watch this space!

*favourite hymn is a movable feast.

New Song – In the Beginning

Those of you who have had to listen to me pontificate about church music for any length of time will have heard me lament, quality or music, quality of lyrics, lack of scriptures and theological statements in modern music.  You will have no doubt also heard me groan at the mention of most Christmas music for counterproductive and often contradictory to the the faith.

When an email arrived this morning from Resound Worship promising Christmas music, I admit I was skeptical.  I was delighted to find this wonderful song resetting John Chapter 1 as congregational worship.  It comes complete with everything you need as musicians to make it your own.

Awesome!
