Lyrics for New Single 'Blessed Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Only 4 more days until the new single from ION is released!!!
Today you get a look at the lyrics for the new song.
This song was written in 1995 about 5 years after Paul's father passed away from a sudden heart attack, and is a tribute to him. John Vanhuisstede was an avid musician and music lover and that is reflected in the lyrics as well.
There can be no greater comfort than knowing with certainty that a loved one is safe in the arms of our Saviour.

Download the new single Blessed on Wednesday November 7th !!!!!!!

ION - "Blessed."

White flowers gather 'round.
Your smile on the ground.
Your picture on the wall
Still a comfort to us all.
Seasons change and so did I,
And like memories passing by,
My heart will stay the same until I see you once again.

So father rest your head, knowing that you're blessed.
The brightness which you bring, this night won't mean a thing.
Our pain will fade away, enjoy your everlasting day.

Thank you for the times we shared,
Still your music fills the air.
All the things you gave to me,
Are in my voice as I sing.
Though the going may be hard,
And we're forced to play our cards,
The hands that hold you dear,
Are ever present here.

Lyrics: Paul Vanhuisstede 2012.

ION Studio/Live Update. Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

ION has one more song to lay down and the tracking for the new cd will be done. Carmen Witten was with ION in the studio this week to lay down her duet with brother Paul on the new track "Say Them Anyways", the resuts were fantastic! The song is turning out to be one of the highlights from the new tracks!

We hope to be able to wrap up the recording by months end. The mixing and mastering is being done by Mr. Keith Mohr and we are stoked about the results. We are heading out this week for a photo shoot for the new cd and promo pics, the artwork and layout is also currently being put together.

On the live show front, iON has been asked to headline a fundraiser for a local pro-life organization for this spring/summer.
We will be the entertainment following the fund raiser dinner and the event will be geared towards drawing out our own fans as well as some who have not heard of us but are involved in the organization etc, so basically we get some great exposure at a great cause. We are thrilled as this should coincide with the release of our new cd!
Our hope is to have the new cd out by the end of May 2009, we have a lot of work to do between now and then if we want to nail it at these shows!!

That's all Folks!!

ION has 6 new tracks recorded for new cd! Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Hi folks, it's been quite the ride recording our new cd.
But we have only 4 more songs to go before we begin the mixing and mastering stage.
we've really been challenging ourselves to do this the best we can, and thus we have spent a lot of time on the arrangements and the recording itself.
Although this has been trying at times, and rather tedious at others, I think the final product will be a huge upgrade form our previous work.

The new cd is to be entitled "Return to Sender", and we hope to have 10 tracks in all.


Anyhow, wish us luck!
