Songs are (not in order)
Seek after You
For All that You Are
Good to Me
Let everything that has breath
I lift up my soul
Let the words of my mouth
Nothings Impossible with God
Heal Me Oh Lord
Hear My Prayer
Search Me Oh God
I will Dwell
Out of the Depth
Only By Your Grace
Any One I
am also going back into the studio to do a EP which Lord willing will be ready for my Sept 16 date in the states.

Now it's funny to be out on the street and hear "Hey Mr. DMC" from a student who may see me in public.
New Recording in Production
Another "New Thing" that happen in 2009 was getting back into the recording studio and began working on my first full length studio album in ten years.
"Before Your Throne" features 12 songs of praise, worship and story songs ranging in different musical styles.
Teaming up with Steve Dickerson of Audio Integrity, we began recording the vocals & guitars in July while I
was on tour in New Jersey . The second half of the recording is being done in Elwood City , Pennsylvania with David LaDuke
of the Upper Room studios who will be adding the other musical arrangements.
I will keep you posted on the progress of the recording and when it's due to be released.
The unforeseen Challenges
2009 also brought unpleasant challenges.
Producer/arranger David LaDuke of the Upper Room Studio's in Elwood City, PA has already began to tackle adding the other musical arrangements to what I already done back in the summer.
I got to hear what he added so far on the song "Good to Me" which is a very 'driven/some what folk rock' song.
love the way he
can bring a song a live!!
It is also were the Upper Room studio is located at were I will be working with producer David LaDuke on the 2nd part of my new CD project "Before Your Throne".
" A Return to the Quiet Moments" would feature the praise and worship songs that I have written in the past 10 years.
Another possibility that has presented its self would have me travel to New Jersey and work with producer Bart Conrad to record some of my favorite praise and worship song that I have used in worship services the last 15 years.
David LaDuke of the Upper Room Studios in Ellwood City, PA and I have also been talking about working together on a adult contemporary album.
