“I love Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing), which gives newness to the phrases of Isaiah. Watching, waiting, and longing is what we do now, and these songs help us do that in confidence. I anticipate that this album will be received as a great gift by many who will find their faith nourished and awakened by it.”
My guest on this episode of Voices In My Head is Jonathan Cain. Jonathan is the longtime keyboardist and rhythm guitarist in the internationally acclaimed rock band Journey. He’s also the co-writer of the No. 1 digital catalog song in history, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” as well as writer of “Faithfully” and co-writer of “Who’s Crying Now,” “Open Arms” and many more international hit songs. Jonathan will release his new solo album, What God Wants to Hear, on Oct. 21 on Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution.
Rick Lee James making a music video on September 23rd and I’m requesting three things from the listeners of Voices in My Head:
2.) Financial Support
3.) Your Prayerfully Imaginative Ideas for the video
Our hope is to portray that while we are in the midst of great brokenness, and longing that we hopefully look to the great mystery of our faith Christ has died, Christ Is Risen, and that Christ is Coming Back again.
Listen to this 20 minute episode and then visit GoFundMe.com/RickLeeJames to find out how you can help make this video a reality.

A friend of mine challenged me to write a version of the hymn “Cleanse Me (Search Me O God)” in the style of “The Civil Wars”. This is a live Facebook video of me trying to do that. I hope you enjoy it.
“Crafted directly from inspiration found in hymnals and prayer books, songwriter and worship leader Rick Lee James offers Hymns, Prayers and Invitations. It is with the intentionality behind the last word of the album title, Invitations, that makes this project a stand out. More than a collection of hymny interpretations or simple song book upgrades, James’ purposeful use of lyric, timbre, and track synchronism should lead the listener into moments of powerful communication and worship with the Lord. Hymns, Prayers and Invitations drip with soundtracks of Sunday morning sanctuaries to intimately personal prayer closet concerts.”
“The modern hymn approach to congregational songwriting and singing has a worthy new addition”
“If you’re looking for music that is congregational yet not cookie cutter, get this album”
It has been a great couple of months in print for coverage of my new album, Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations. Features, reviews, and ads have appeared in CCM Magazine, Worship Leader Magazine, and Lifeway Worship’s Worship Life Gatlinburg event brochure. Plus, music from the new album is scheduled to be featured in Worship Leader Magazine’s Song DISCovery release in September, along with a feature on the web set. Here are a few pictures of where the album appeared in the past month.
