“Risen Indeed.” So glad to finally record this one.
Good ol’ @benshive working out the piano part to “All Things Together,” (from Colossians 1). The astute listener may notice a similarity to another “All Things” song. And the astute viewer may spot a @johnhendrix cameo. #resurrectionletters1
Straight from @benshive’s studio to the animation studio to work through some @wingfeathersaga tweaks with @jchriswall. SO FUN.
Producer @jchriswall hard at work (as usual) on @wingfeathersaga stuff.
Back at it! In the studio again with @benshive, and the quadruple bonus of my son @ashapetason as the assistant engineer. #resurrectionletters1
Well, THAT was a great show. Loved seeing my pal Ron Block totally holding his own in one of the best bands in the world. Crazy. Also, what a brilliant lineup! I saw several friends tonight and asked them if they were there for @davidgray or @alisonkrauss, and they all said, “Both.” Me, too. (Also, happy birthday to my sweet Jamie!)
Writing songs for a new record is a weird combination of thrilling, boring, frustrating, and meditative. I love it.
And so it begins! Resurrection Letters, volume ONE. Day one in the studio was a planning session—which means mapping out songs, themes, structures, motifs, scriptures, which journals to use (leather bound? composition books? TOO MANY OPTIONS), what snacks we need, players, schedules, and jokes. Honored to have @benshive at the helm once again.
The finale: 2300 people singing “Step by Step.”(That’s my girl on vocals!) #richmullins
Last night’s #richmullins tribute was so joyful my cheeks literally hurt from smiling. I don’t like posting pics of myself, but @disciplephoto put this up and I thought it captured the way we all felt. My brain is fried, so I can’t say more. Just know that what happened last night was God’s doing, from first to last. He loves us so much.
