ARTIST RICK LEE JAMES SEEKS FUNDING TO CARRY ON THE LEGACY OF RICH MULLINS, THE ICONIC CHRISTIAN MUSIC SINGER

Musician and singer Rick Lee James is all set to carry on the legacy of Rich Mullins, the American contemporary Christian music singer, and songwriter, best known for his worship songs “Awesome God” and “Step by Step”. In the summer of 2017, in the middle of writing and planning a new studio album, James received a phone call from Rich Mullins’ first publisher Randy Cox. Randy kindly asked if there would be a place for some of Rich Mullins’ unpublished music on James’ new record. After hearing the Mullins’ song ‘Thunder’, James gladly committed to recording it. With the lyrics, “It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple”, Thunder sets the tone for the entire project. This new album is designed to shake things up a bit.

To meet the financial needs for this new full-length album, James has started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com with a goal of $10,200. As an emerging artist who has been deeply inspired by the music and life of Rich Mullins, the project means a lot to him and he is ready to put his heart and soul into it.

Rick is a worship leader, singer, and songwriter, author, speaker and Podcast host with over twenty years of experience in the ministry. He also had the privilege to share the gospel through music to various venues such as the world-famous Ryman Auditorium and the National Worship Leader Conference. Even with the experience he has, James has both great elation and caution when approaching the music of a CCM icon like Rich Mullins. “Rich Mullins is to Christian music what Bob Dylan is to secular music”, says James. “There’s a great deal of pressure not only to be true to what Rich envisioned but to make something that his fans can be proud of”.

In addition to the lost music by Rich Mullins, this new album will be filled with James’ own original songs, re-imagined hymns, and congregational music that deals with tough issues like loving our enemies and learning how to lament in worship.

The album is being made at Old Bear Studio in Buffalo, New York with the popular rootsy folk group, Brothers McClurg, as the backing band. Rich Mullins’ song ‘Thunder’, and an original song by James called “The Love of Christ” have already been recorded. Once the album is fully funded, Rick will head back to New York in March to finish the project with producer Chris Hoisington. The funds raised from the campaign will be used to cover the costs of paying for studio time, musicians, engineers, photographers, videographers, and various other productions costs.

The backers of the album receive will various perks by supporting the campaign, such as free signed copies of the CD, personalized gifts from Rick’s private media collections, guest spots on the Voices In My Head Podcast, an autographed electric guitar, a trip to the recording studio and much more.
