New Album on the way!

I am sooo excited!  I just started recording my next record!  It’s funny; I never know how to refer to it; is it an album?  a record? a CD?  It’s certainly not a cassette… although I been there and done that too.  Many, many moons ago, my young friends.  They don’t make them anymore.

So what do I say?  I’m recording my next CD?  That doesn’t seem right.  I’m recording my next record?  Nobody really buys records anymore… I’m recording my next album?  Isn’t an album a record?   Well, what ever it’s called, it’ll be released hopefully by Christmas!

If Hallelujah has taught me anything (and it’s taught me MANY), it’s that there seems to be a need for meaningful, gospel/inspirational music out there.  I hadn’t really thought about it much until I recorded Hallelujah and it received such an amazing response.  People started asking for a gospel CD, and I always replied, “that’s a great idea”, but I didn’t truly, seriously think about it until I needed it myself.

I got pretty sick about a year and a half ago and boy, oh boy, there’s no whack upside the head like 9 weeks in the hospital.  It was quite the wake up call that maybe I should be thinking about a gospel album as so many people had asked about.  So it seems now that I’m doing this for me as much as anyone else.  And I’m so fortunate to have recognized the whack upside the head before it was too late.

So here it is.  A collection of inspirational/gospel songs (and a few hymns) that truly mean something to me.  Of course, there are a few fun ones there too, but I’d say 95% of the songs are ones that have a story.  And I’m happy to share them with you – they’ll be on the album liner notes.

So keep an eye out just before Christmas – I’m going to do my best to get it out in November.
