Hey folks! Remember last year, when I was recording all those hymns and putting them out? Well – I sorta re-did them. I did not re-record them. I practice my mixing and mastering skills (which still need practice), trying to make what I put out sound a bit better. And I hope you like it. and if you don’t – it’s still free. So there you have it. 🙂
I call this collection “Roots Down Deep”. Originally, it was going to be a collection of covers, from bands or artists that I grew up with, mixed in with hymns. The premise being these musicians inspired me as I grew up, and the hymns – well they represent how God’s word has penetrated my very being. How I am rooted and established in love, as Paul says in Ephesians 3.
Well, I decided against recording all the covers. Too much work, and they weren’t turning out nearly as I had hoped. However, I did leave you with one little treat. I did a cover of “A World Without Heroes” by Kiss. I kinda like it, and I think you might too – whether or not you were ever a Kiss fan. I was, growing up. They were THEE band for me when I was a kid, and even into my teens and twenties. I even did a couple tribute shows with some friends of mine – which for quite some time cured me of any sort of Kiss fandom, and kinda ruined the band for me. But I digress….
I hope you enjoy this collection. I really like listening to hymns, singing hymns, letting them penetrate me. They aren’t the word – but often they are quoting scripture, and they are rich, deep praises to God. It’s my prayer that these songs, minus the odd addition of a Kiss song, will be a blessing to you (Or maybe even the Kiss song? Depending on who you are), as they were for me to record.
