Story

I wrote this while attending Puget Sound College of the Bible in 1976. First performed with my band OPEN FIST.  Kind of begging people to listen, not to me, but to God.

Rick King played electric guitar on the album. Rob Farley did the Rhodes. Mark Schulman played the drums.

Story

My dear friend Kent Severns showed up at my house in 1983 with this song about half written.  We worked on it together to finish it, although I think of it as mostly Kent's song.  Kent was in OPEN FIST with me. Curt Cassingham played bass on the recording. Rob Farley played piano and Rhodes and John Standefer played the nylon string guitar.

In 2010, Kent recorded an acoustic version of this song at my studio in Dayton.  It remains one of my favorites.

Another song performed with OPEN FIST. Jim Swanson was our lead singer in OPEN FIST and he joined me for the harmony on the recording.  I played the song for the producer, Scott James the day before we were to record it.  He said nice song, but it would be better with a bridge.  So by the time we recorded it, I had written a bridge.  Just one of the many ways Scott made my first album such a timeless work. 

Mark Schulman was on drums. Rob Farley provided the piano and the Jupiter 6. John Standefer played the electric nylon string guitar solo. Scott James played the triangle and Thom Dudley played 12 string.

Story

Another one going back to my PSCB days written in 1977 after taking a class on Isaiah from Prof. Richard Owen.  He sure made that book come alive.  It's been one of my favorite books of the Bible ever since.  When I played it in chapel, he had tears in his eyes.  It could have been joy, but might have been pain too.  You have to remember, electric guitars in a church like environment were kind of a new thing back then.

That's Rob Farley on the B3, Rick King on the electric guitars and Brian David Willis on the drums.

I wrote this in 1975 and first performed it at PSCB at the spring Gospel Festival. Mark Schulman did the drums on the recording(a long time before he started playing drums for PINK).

I wrote this in 1978.  My brother Rick helped with the lyrics. That's Brian David Willis on the drums.

Story

A song that was born out of a conversation about faith.  Would we be any different than the ancients who saw the miracles of the Bible with their own eyes and still struggled with their faith and obedience if we had been there?

John Standefer played nylon string guitar on this song with me. It was written in 1984.

That's Brian Willis on the drums, Rick King on the electric guitar and Rob Farley on the Jupiter 6 on this song written in 1983. My inspiration for this song comes from the book of Jeremiah.
