A birthday announcement…


As my closest friends have learned over the years, on my birthday I don’t prefer huge parties, or being showered with gifts. I tend rather to set aside some quiet time to invest in something that is meaningful for me.

Today, I am honored to announce that Ascension Worship’s CITY WORSHIP PROJECT has recorded & released a song I was a part of bringing to life, “You won’t Stop“.  [Read more…]

NEXT: Fresh New Worship – April 2016

Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 9.44.56 AMAs I’ve noted before, it can be hard to find solid, new corporate worship songs for your congregation, especially if you don’t subscribe to the “one-size-fits-all” mentality of only pulling from the CCLI Top 100.

I’ve found a few lesser-known gems from newer artists, & a few major worship teams who consistently bring some of the best new songs to the fold.  Also, as a reminder, I only make these Spotify lists so you can be introduced to new-to-you songs. If you like any of them, be encouraged to purchase them from iTunes.
