In The Studio This Week

Nashville Bound

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

My guests today are David Leonard and Leslie Jordan, better known to most of us by their stage name, All Sons and Daughters.  Their new live album is absolutely amazing. It’s filled with worship songs that have a classic feel without being derivative of other popular worship music. In addition to being worship leaders at Journey Church in Franklin Tennessee, they are also sought after performing artists, even joining Chris Tomlin recently on the Burning Lights Tour. It’s my pleasure to welcome Integrity Music Recording Artists, All Sons and Daughters to Voices In My Head today.

Podcast Episode #37 with Guest: Eddie Kirkland

Eddie Kirkland

Listen Here:

I was really blessed to have a conversation with Eddie Kirkland for this week’s Podcast.  Eddie is a talented songwriter and worship leader who has a great story to tell. He is featured in featured the current issue of Worship Leader Magazine for his amazing new album titled, “Kings and Queens”.  It’s one of the best Christian albums I’ve heard in a very long time, and that’s saying a lot considering that I’ve just heard friend of the show, Andrew Peterson‘s new album.  I found Eddie Kirkland not only to be one of the most talented songwriters and singers on the scene today, but he is also a genuinely kind and engaging person who after only a few minutes together makes you feel like you’ve known him for years.  It’s my honor to feature Eddie on today’s episode of Voices In My Head Podcast.

Also, this week only, you can get a free download of the Voices IN My Head Podcast theme song, “If You Hear His Voice Today” from my friends over at itickets.com and Christianhappenings.com.    Plus, on today’s show I will tell you about my experience last week recording my first every LIVE album, Basement Psalms.  Basement Psalms will be released in the near future as a CD and DVD and I can’t wait to share the details with you on today’s episode.
