Description

"God of Heaven" has been a labor of love in the past

two years. Its content and vision has changed and shifted in several directions before landing where it is today. In short, I love songs. I love corporate worship songs, ministry songs, and Contemporary Christian songs. I grew up listening to Billy Crockett and Steven Curtis Chapman. These guys took me with them on their faith journey every time I listened. I heard their ache and their passion in every lyric. I have always wanted to take people places in songs and I pray that these I've prepared will do a similar thing. This record has come together with the hope of presenting a snapshot of all of those categories of songwriting that I love so much.

Will Hunt is the hero of this project! His patience and grace in allowing me the time to record in his creative space is invaluable. His brilliance, friendship, and wisdom have been gifts for me in the last many years that we've worked together. There have been some amazingly gifted songwriters that have graciously joined me on this journey. Micah Tyler, Travis Ryan, Matt Armstrong, Kevin Jones, Corey Voss, and Austin Neal are all wonderful men of God and their contributions have been stunning and humbling. To all of the gifted musicians who contributed to this record: Jesse Fox, Josh Sebren, Jake Sebren, Matthew Kidd, Adrian Disch, and Jarod Evans, I am humbled that you'd share your God given gifts with me. It would not be what it is without you. To my family and friends who have encouraged, prayed, and carried me on this journey I will never be able to say thank you. Both your relational and financial contributions sustained and funded this record. To Houston's First Summit Singles Ministry, that miraculous May day set us on a course of confidence and trust in the Lord to provide all of our needs as we followed in faith to make this music happen. This record would not exist without your financial support. To my wife Emily: You are my favorite. I cannot imagine this road without you. You are God's gift of grace in my life and I look forward to realizing together as many days as the Lord would grant us in the future. To Mom and Dad: You have been with me since I first began singing when I just a kid. This is my joy and you have provided every opportunity to keep taking steps forward. This record is for you. To Uncle David: I miss you so. You gave me my first opportunity to record songs. I wouldn't be writing and singing songs that God put on my heart if you had not first believed in me. Your soul is in me and I write because men like you gave me wings to fly.

Lastly: I often say that I cannot imagine where my life would have ended up if not for the grace and patience of Jesus. I am overwhelmed every time I stand before folks and sing gospel songs. They are your story in me. You are a faithful and loving author. If you'll keep writing - I'll keep singing.
