I am really excited today to be able to say that Mirrors is available from Come and Live! Come and Live! is run by Chad Johnson, who is an amazing guy and a great friend. Chad’s desire is to release Christian music that is high quality, has integrity, and which points people to Jesus, so it’s pretty exciting for me that he thinks Mirrors, and I personally, fit the bill. He also likes to give it away for free. So, from today, you can download my album for free from the Come and Live! website (hover over the last sentence to get to my page on the website).
One of the best things about Come and Live! is that it isn’t a record label. It’s a collective of musicians and ministers based on relationship. Come and Live! is putting out Mirrors because Chad and I have been friends for a long time now. I first nearly had an album out on Come and Live! when Heart Strings came out in 2010. It’s been a long time coming. It is so inspiring to partner with a group of people who don’t just “get” music and musicians, but whose passion is seeing people meet with God through that music and the people who made it.
I won’t be suddenly becoming a full-time musician, or anything like it. I don’t know if I’ll ever make another album. I hope that I’ll continue making the different bits of my life match up and have integrity. I doubt I’ll make a penny from this, but the sense of partnership in walking alongside Come and Live! in the gospel and as friends is better than any amount of money.
Also, it’s beyond exciting for me to part of the community that brought Ascend the Hill, The Ember Days, Least of These and others to the world. If you don’t know who they are, you should.
And lastly, I beg you, watch the Columbia documentary on the Come and Live! website. It will make you marvel, I have no doubt.
(and I know they spelt my name wrong. To be fair I have two names which are very difficult to spell!)
