This week on the Voices In My Head Podcast, Andrew Peterson returns. Since we are so close to the Easter Season we talk a lot about his classic record, Resurrection Letters Volume 2. It was great to record this episode on location in Nashville at the Rabbit Room’s North Wind Manor. There’s a little something for everyone here. Great music and great conversation with a great artist, Andrew Peterson.

For those of you following the progress of making my next album, I wanted to share some pictures from yesterday in the studio. We recorded at the Poole Room in Franklin Tennessee. It’s a really incredible environment for making music. These players and engineers are literally some of the best in the world. They cut 8 songs in 6 hours…and even the unmixed cuts sound amazing. I came prepared for two full days in the studio but it only took one. These guys are the unsung heroes of the music business and are certainly my heroes. They are the guys you hear on the radio but you never hear their names. My deepest gratitude to each of them, Lifeway Worship, and Producer Craig Adams for making this happen. We are planning to record my vocals and additional guitar parts in early 2015.

Tracking For The New Record Begins This Week

Good Day,
I hope that this update finds you well. The advent season is upon us again and with it, as always, is much busyness. In addition to the normal Yuletide events this year, This year I add recording a new album to the schedule. This Thursday I will begin my drive to Nashville Tennessee and on Friday morning we will begin tracking the new album. I am so excited about this as I’m sure you are well aware. I have dreamed of an opportunity like this for so many years and God is finally open the door. I am so blessed to work with Lifeway Worship, Producer Craig Adams, A list musicians, and the top engineers in Nashville on this project.

I believe we have come up with a title that encapsulates this project. We think the title will be Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations. I am so blessed by so many of you given how did your resources to make this album the reality. Make God bless you in this holiday season and renew your faith in Christ. I covet your prayers as we begin this recording process and I ask you to pray for others will be renewed in their faith as a result of this endeavor. While we want to make great music, the goal is to reveal Jesus and the present reality of the kingdom of God.

I’ll do my best to update you on line through Facebook and Twitter (@RickLeeJames) while I am in Nashville with pictures and more as I am able. I feel very blessed today and I can’t wait to share the songs with you as a complete collection.

Blessings,
Rick Lee James
