Second attempt to be the “Starfish” at this year’s FISHFEST in Irvine, CA. I had in mind to do a full production. Unfortunately, time was short (deadline tomorrow), so I went with the tried, true and super fast webcam.

Re-recording “Lyrics of My Heart” (aka “Making a CD and doing it right”)

As some of you may know, I am involved with a music library where I write two-minute music “cues” that get played at various outlets, including on television.

“Show Me” by Audrey Assad

When I was ten or so, my parents registered me for piano lessons because one of my friends was doing it. It was interesting for six weeks, until the teacher – a 60 something who wore his hair long, but because he wore glasses, he was less hip and more Ben Franklin – took away […]

“Grrrrr! Why does every Christian song seem to follow the same chord progression with different words?”

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.
