“I’ve watched Rick grow as an artist and songwriter for many years. Congratulations brother on an excellent independent release! Bravo!!”
Rick Lee James is songwriter who doesn’t just turn a line, but cultivates lyrics that are planted firmly in deep theological roots. Rick is called to lead congregations in hearing God’s word, in confessing God’s holiness, in praying faithful prayers, in singing truthful songs, and accepting God’s generous invitation. On Thunder, his latest album, he composes with the complexity and depth of a musician who has learned the craft by living the life. Thunder is set to be released independently in February 2018 through James’ company, Voices In My Head Productions. The album was recorded at Old Bear Studio in Buffalo, New York with producer Chris Hoisington (Brothers McClurg). This 13 track album combines James’ thoughtful melodies, instrumental versatility, and spoken words to create a vibe where artistry and liturgy meet. The lead single, “Thunder”, is a never before released song by the late Rich Mullins, co-written with Lowell Alexander and Phil Naish, accompanied by a beautiful new music video.
