The end of another year is upon us.
Black Friday has done its worst and we’re about to experience all the reflection, anticipation and insanity that is the Christmas season.
I’ve been busy for the last month or so cleaning the cobwebs off a Christmas show I co-wrote with a friend of mine 7 years ago called, Remember the King. I’ve been asked to perform it as a solo show this year for a group of friends in Wisconsin, so I’ve had the joy of re-adapting certain a cappella or rock tunes for acoustic and even writing a few replacement songs. I’m excited (and a little nervous) to perform the ole’ show again.
It’s a good show for challenging our traditional thinking of the season and calling people to seek hope in an often time discouraging and lonely holiday.
“Peace on earth, good will toward men.”
If you find that, I’ll be impressed,
Because darkness enters in the hearts of men;
We need the Light, we need the Light again…
I hope it challenges people this year as much as it’s challenged me while cleaning it up.
In other news, I thought I’d give a little “teaser” for some work I’m doing toward my next project, “For Country and King.” (working title) This album is going to deal with the idea of conflict as we find it in War and at Home, in Church and in the Family, and as always, in Love. Here’s a free look at my face in a video (that’s our bird house in the background!), and you might hear a new song as well… cheers!
