I am really digging this!

Starting to hear a record flow take shape! As I continue tracking and arranging, I am feeling really good about this project. I have been having some cool conversations with close friends about what artistic integrity means. I feel that through all of my previous experiences with recording, there was more energy spent, at least in my head, on managing politics of bandhood and co-creation than enjoyment of the process. I am really digging this.

Silent Night | You Have Rescued

It was a silent night
When you came to earth
To shine a holy light
Through a child’s birth
In a humble place
Beneath a star so bright
In the air so still
On a silent night

It was a silent night
When you made a way
So the silent might
Have a voice to say
Come and rescue us
Come and make us right
Start a brand new day
On a silent night

Silent night, holy night
All is calm all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

It was a silent night
When redemption came
Rescued from our plight
By only Jesus’ name
Now the human race
Has been given sight
So we can see his face
Oh! That silent night.

You have rescued
you have rescued
you have rescued us
