Inspiresong Conference, May 2018 Aspen Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Inspiresong was definitely what the name says:  Inspiring and full of Songs!
The Song contest was fun and surprising as the winner gave up his recording prize to a 14-year old boy who definitely deserved a prize for his song "Warrior", which will inspire youth across the nation to stand up for Jesus. The presenters from Word Records and Publishing and CCLI were informative for any level of songwriting experience. They also showcased some of their songs in the Thursday Night Concert, focusing on Worship. Attendees got a chance to share our songs at the Friday night Concert. It was lots of fun to hear people from all over the USA and Canada writing in various genres. As we worshipped many prayers were answered, doors were opened, and dreams made into reality. I made good friends, some of whom offered to help further my ministry, taking it to the next level. I'm so glad I went and I look forward to the next Inspiresong Conference. Hope to see you at the next one!

TreeTalk is a Single, and my most recent release. It will be part of my next album and possibly the Title Track. I wrote this song during an online course at Berklee College of Music. It was inspired by walking through giant Sequoia forests and listening to the sounds: whispering leaves, chirping birds, and scampering squirrels, and watching sunlight filtering through the canopy above. What a majestic Cathedral! If you enjoy it please send me a comment.

I'm doing several Gospel Weddings with "Jubilation" February and March. Jubilation is 3-part vocal and keyboard group which has been doing private events for Japanese couples and families for about 12 years. We have many Japanese people who visit Hawaii and want to get married here, and they love Gospel Music! We have a great opportunity to pray for the couple and family on this most important day of their life. It's a blessing to help them celebrate with songs that worship the Lord, planting seeds as we go.
