As we are deep in the thick of the gift-giving season, I'm proud to share that I'll soon be giving you all some brand new music! Love>Fear, my upcoming two-song EP, will be released on the morning of December 31st for your audial consumption.
(And as an aside, I don't know if a two-song project technically counts as an EP, but let's roll with it for the time being).
Why an EP release on the last day of the year you ask? The tunes - Your Radiance and Greatest of These - were written for Seeking Stars, the 2012 Collegiate Conference at Montreat on January 2-5. This is a fantastic national conference for all college-aged folks with some amazing keynoters and preachers like Sara Miles, Gabe Lyons and J. Herbert Nelson. Somehow in that incredible lineup, I got asked to lead music. And I decided, in addition to doing the standard praise and worship repertoire, that I'd write a few of my own. Your Radiance is based on the conference's scripture and is a co-write with my good friend Jerry Chapman. Greatest of These is not tied specifically to the conference theme, but was one of those beautiful songs that came in a flash.
More about the songs later - just know that on New Year's Eve, as you watch the 23-some football games that'll be on TV, you can turn the sound down and listen to some new tunes. It'll be available as a digital download from iTunes, Bandcamp, and CD Baby.
Get psyched. I sure am! And a Merry Christmas to you all.
