Hello Everyone,This Sunday, after I lead music at my church in Springfield Ohio, I will get into my car and head to New York to start recording my next album with Brothers McClurg at Old Bear Studios. I’ve been under the weather for about a week now with a cold and my voice, while not the greatest in the world to start with, is a little weak.
I would be honored to have your prayers as we start to make this record. We will begin by recording an unpublished song by Rich Mullins called Thunder and my hope is that it will honor not only Rich’s memory and be something he would be proud of, but also the message of the song to bring hope to others to the honor of our great Savior.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers as we begin this journey of creating new music together. I’ll post live videos along the way as I am able. Thank you again for all your support.
I’m grateful to CCLI for featuring two more of my songs, published by Lifeway Worship. Two more of my music videos were just added to CCLI TV today. Special thanks to the directors of the two videos, Rick Stull (Christ Is Lord) and Jason Elam (The Invitation). This makes the third song from ‘Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations’ to be featured by CCLI.
CCLI is the easiest way to discover and legally use affordable media, content and resources while reducing the administrative headaches of copyright licensing search and compliance. … The best place to find licensed audio samples and lyrics along with vocal, chord and lead sheets from more than 300,000 songs of worship. https://worshipfuel.ccli.com/invitation-rick-lee-james
This is often what pre-service looks like for me. I warmed up by rehearsing a couple of songs we were playing together in church then closed my time by warming up my finders on a Phil Keaggy inspired (Doin’ Nothin’) type guitar jam using my JamMan Looper. I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes LIVE Facebook video from Sunday Morning, May 22nd, 2016 (Trinity Sunday).
