Awake – original song

December 9, 2008 — 4 Comments

A few weeks ago I started talking to Bridget Willard about maybe collaborating on some music via the wonderful inernet. We worked on a Christmas song that is almost finished and I love it. When I asked Bridget “what’s next?” she sent me a link to some words she posted on her site.

I was instantly drawn in and reworked some of the words and wrote music to it in like 5 minutes. I realized something very quickly. Even if we never collaborate again, God definitely inspired these two songs and I am grateful to have worked on them.

The song below is called AWAKE. It is the “what’s next” song. I am playing it in the key of D, but I will do it in church in the key of E. Keep in mind I am still learning how to play it because it was literally written in minutes. So I mess up. ha ha

I can hear the full band on this one and I can’t wait to play it for real.

“we” hope you like it. and go over to Bridget’s site and give her some love.

Oh and SORRY YOU CANT HEAR VOCALS SO WELL…SO USE THE LYRICS 🙂

Lyrics:

I was created to be transformed
Created to be like You
Created to be reborn
and worship my King

I choose to yield to Your will Oh Lord
To yield to Your way
To yield to Your grace and truth
In You there is no shame

I want heart to yearn for you
Lord take my heart and renew

Awake!
Awake my soul
And I will sing Your praise
And I will not be ashamed
Awake!
Awake my soul
to sing Praises to your Name
Praise to the High King

Awake….Awake….Awaken my soul
Awake….Awake….Lord make me whole

Introducing the Ignite Band

September 23, 2008 — 1 Comment

I want to introduce the most insane worship band ever.

Matt– rhythm & lead guitar (soon to be vocals): Influences are Metal, progressive rock

Brian K– Drums: Influences are 90’s rock and metal. Also in a speed metal band

Brian O- Bass and Wah: Influences 90’s hardcore

Joel- rhythm & lead guitar, Lead vocals: Influences..Everything from Charlie Hall to Yes to Tori Amos

Rich- Our wicked cool tech guy: He prefers not to be influenced by anybody.

That’s the band until God brings more people into. I have to say that is one cool mix of people and styles.

Sunday Setlist blog Carnival for Aug 24th

Take my life (I am Yours) – trad/Michael Neale

Main Set
Be Glorified – Me
Here is our King – Crowder
Holy is the Lord – Giglio/Tomlin

Offering
True Love – Phil Wickham

Communion
Oh the Glory of it All – Crowder
See the Way – Misty Edwards
How Great is our God – Tomlin

Close
I Will Boast – Baloche

Cool set this week. I had a blast with the worship. Playing Phil Wickham in a singable key was..dare I say it..RAD!

I love Oh the glory of it all and especially for communion. No clue why but I did see the way in way too love of a key, but it worked any way.

If you are seeing this. Yes I did 2 Tomlin songs. And yes that may just be too many in one set, but it really worked this week. 🙂

And ending with I will boast was fantastic. I love Baloche. He writes perfect stuff.

Overall everything went great, but ever since mancation my mind has been racing with tons of stuff. More on that soon.
