wrote during a photo shoot for a painting I was doing at the time. The lyrics kept going through my mind, “how beautiful the earth, like a diamond in the universe” . It was one of those songs that came easy. I arranged this song with minimal instrumentation and a natural nature sound effect in the background arranged by Rick Armstrong. In stark contrast the song, “When Love Starts Talking” a country rocker made popular by Wynonna Judd says in a contemporary way “to be still and know that I am God. I love the lyrics and vibe of this song. I think you’ll love the songs on this album. My prayer is that it will bless you and lift you up.
I think you’ll like the diversity of this album and the wonderful musicianship offered by some of the best players in Michigan, like Tom Tucholski on lead guitars, Wil Jackson on Bass guitar, George Widiger on Keyboards, Rick Armstrong on drums and percussion, Dan Mercer on Electric rhythm, Tim Rowley on steel guitar and Elijah “Rocko” Amstutz.on conga. I really enjoyed working with these musicians and having them add to my original rhythm guitar and vocal tracs. Together we created this God inspired album of songs that I hope will bless everyone who hears them.
