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

I Need Your Thoughts & Opinions

Hello My Friends,

I hope that you are all enjoying your week and that God is blessing you as you draw near to him in this Spring time of year. It always reminds me of newness and life. God is always doing new things in His world.

This has been a year of new things in my life. Most of you know that I released my first book this year and I have been so pleased with the response. Getting endorsements and encouragement form people I’ve admired for so long like Michael Card, Brian Zahnd, Brett McCracken, and Matt Litton just to name a few has been a dream come true. I’ve also received some wonderful review on Amazon from new readers and I just feel so blessed.

The reason I’m writing is that a new opportunity has arisen which could be a real help in getting the book into the hands of more people. Dan Gummel is a talented voice actor who is very interested in narrating an audio version of my book. In order to cover his expenses and studio time I would need to raise about $1500.00 before distribution costs. Since we are in an audio/video society that frankly doesn’t read very much anymore, I feel like this audio book could be used to reach people who might not sit down to read a book, but would give it a listen in their car or while they exercise using their mobile devices.

Today, I’m simply asking if there is any interest level in helping to fund an audio book of Out of the Depths: A Songwriter’s Journey Through The Psalms. I’d love to end each chapter with the song that corresponds allowing people to not only hear the chapter on the Psalm but then respond to it with music. I would love the chance to make this available, but I want to make sure it isn’t just me.

What are your thoughts? Any interest in supporting this endeavor or should I just leave it as is. I’d appreciate your thoughts and prayers on this as people who have been such a blessing to me in the past. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. I’m not asking you to give today, I really just want to know your thoughts.

Here is a sample of Dan reading a portion of the book so you can have an idea of what it will sound like.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James
