New album ‘Rivers’ in the pipeline

This album was conceived on the shores of the Waikato River where it exits Lake Taupo by the Taupo township in NZ. I walked there one morning after the final concert of the ‘Sanctuary’ Tour May 2014. I was deeply impacted by the depth and rich blue/green colour of the water and how it seemed like the perfect metaphor for the Christian walk. The Holy Spirit has the ability to reach into our inmost beings, to touch us, to cleanse us, refine us, redefine us, lead us, and even comfort us and counsel us in our most testing times.

Since that time I have done many bible studies on various aspects of water in scripture. The result is this new collection of songs. Essentially, a collection of songs about faith and the different aspects of our Christian walk.

Recording January 2019 – provisional Release Date is March[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]


DARKNESS ON THE FACE   A moody interpretation of Genesis 1.
I FOUND GRACE   Noah found himself in a violent society, as we do.
DESERT SONG   Moses found himself in a desert, the ultimate test.
JOY COMES IN THE MORNING   A setting of Psalm 30. The psalmist encourages us to see beyond our grief to a place of surrender, peace and joy.
YOU SEARCH ME   An interpretation of Psalm 139, a wonderful psalm of intimacy. 
RIVERS   Those who believe in Jesus will have a wellspring of life within them.
RUN TO ME   One of the most popular songs from recent concerts, based on John 9.
UPPER ROOM   I visited the upper room in Jerusalem & knew one day I would write this song.
TAKE IT TO THE CROSS  This song often has a  powerful anointing that touches hearts.
HOLE IN MY HEART   From the perspective of Peter who denied Jesus, and then wept bitterly.
PEACE WILL COME   An anthem for war-torn Eastern Europe, written in Zalaszántó Hungary.
BLESSED HOPE   As a Christian my daily hope is in Jesus.  I look expectantly for His return.
SEBBY’S SONG   A poem by Belgian poet Hannah C Fairchild, dedicated to her lost son.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
