Ok I am committing to blogging on here at least once a week. I have known for a long time that I need to but I am committing to it! So if I slack off send me an email and kick my butt into gear haha.
So it is an interesting time in my music and ministry. Things have grown steadily every season. And things that seemed like only dreams a few years ago are now realities. It’s crazy and humbling. As some of you know I finally have my studio up and running and it is an incredible blessing. We did most of the new EP in it and am excited to continue recording in it and expanding it for years to come. And my heart for it goes well beyond just touching my ministry. In addition to that to see steady growth of, and the amount of, people that follow me and my music has been incredible and humbling. To meet and get more and more letters everyday from you guys has been amazing. And sometimes overwhelming, but mostly amazing
With the brand new release of the Awakening EP I am starting to tour again and it is bitter sweet. I am crazy excited to get going again and to see what God does in and through me at the shows and events. But it can be an overwhelming time as well. Being independent has it’s blessings and curses. I really want to stay indi. I love the creative control. I love the ability to be ministry focused and to write honestly and not PC. I love the fact that someone is not taking 80 percent of the money I make as well but that is another story.
But the downside is that being completely independent means I have to wear all of the proverbial hats as well. From writing and recording, to booking and routing, to promotion and updating, to everything else you could think of. And I think what I am realizing is that I have reached the limit of what I can do on my own. I really feel strongly that my ministry has a lot to offer to this world. And I see evidence of that daily. Things are growing. Lives are changing. And more people than ever are enjoying the music and sharing it with others. It’s awesome!
And at the same time I have a huge desire upon my heart to reach the masses! And I honestly believe to the depths of my heart that it would be powerful! So I have been praying and thinking about what I can do to have things grow to that next level. And I really feel I am just in need of some real help. Signing with a major promotional company, bringing people on the road with me to play with me as well as minister with me. Connecting with larger artists who believe in what God is doing through me that want to use there influence to introduce me to there followings and beyond. Etc etc.
I have a lot of ideas and a basic plan, unfortunately it would take some major funding to see this plan through. And as an indi artist that’s hard to come up with. But I KNOW it is possible. I serve a very BIG GOD that is capable of anything. He has provided for me incredibly and His hand has caused so many of my dreams and visions to come to fruition. Please be in prayer with me for His provision and His hand upon my mind, heart, and life as I continue on. And if you feel lead and are excited about what is going on with my ministry and music as well please let me know!! There are tons of ways that you can be apart of what is happening and I would appreciate it more than you know. WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
I honestly feel this is just the beginning……
