Winter Tour Part Two!

Last week we enjoyed six full days of recording in Goshen, Indiana. There was sure a lot of hard work, effort, singing, playing, listening ears, and opinions as we prepared for this project! Stay tuned for our new album coming out later this year, Lord willing!
Lots of music practice happened before the recording!
Taylor did a fantastic job throwing in many neat runs+licks+leads on the banjo for this album! His great voice was an asset to a few of our songs and he did an amazing job leading our band practices!
Hudson contributed lots of laughter to our band practices and truly is an amazing bass-man! He did a great job singing tenor+lead parts for one of our new songs!
We love the way Joe provides a plethora of musical insights, theory, and ideas to our crew! He added guitar, dobro, and lead+tenor vocals to the album.
 Jordan at Riversong Recording did an amazing job producing and recording our cd! His ideas and ear for music were a blessing to us all!
Liz loves adding syncopated licks and creative runs to her piano+violin songs! She also sang on quite a few songs this album.
Denver can sing a pretty mean bass part and his mandolin chops are stellar! We love his enthusiasm and the way he makes every music practice a party!
Rebecca getting in some school during a break.
Dad sang a solo on one of our songs and did a fabulous job!
Although he wasn't on any other songs, he filfilled important roles through his prayers, leadership, ideas, and faithful drives to and from venues!
Taylor and Jordan made a great team!

Mother has a beautiful voice and we loved her vocals on this cd!
Thank you Mom for all your musicial inputs on this project and the way you helped keep us nourished with healthy food to keep us singing and practicing!
 Our sweet Rebcca was a blessing to our band as she chipped in on ideas and lended beautiful alto, sporano, and tenor parts to our songs!

"Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King."
