Song of the week:
So here’s my first installment of my song of the week. My goal is to write and record a song a week and simply share them with you. I’d love to know if you like it, hate it, are bored by it, moved by it, etc… So please don’t be shy — let me know what you think.
As anybody can attest, we all have times where our lives seem to bottom out a bit, and we lose a sense of purpose. That happens to some more than others. This song is about that and more specifically about not sensing God’s presence for these periods of times, often long one’s, but yearning for it nonetheless. I hope you enjoy.
Sometimes I don’t think I will never see your face again
Oh I still believe, but you are gone, was it my sin?
Well I try to follow you, but often lose my way
So lost and I want to be found today
Oh God, speak to me, I don’t think I understand
Invade this darkness, and help me to stand again
Fill every mind, fill every heart with love
Seize us like a storm and resurrect us above
Longing, waiting for your love
Longing, waiting for someone
This old house is yours
Descend and lead us to the one that soars beyond the stars
Oh make sure we see His scars so we see love
Now we are with the one we looked to above
King & Co played its first full-band show this past Saturday at the Winter Park Art Festival. Here’s a short snippet of Me to Thank:
Here’s the crew (left to right): Darren (Keys); John (Electric/Vocals); Laura (Keys/Vocals); Jared (Bass); Jerome (Drums). Stay tuned for more shows!
Laura and I were privileged to be invited the 3rd Eddie Owen Presents shootout in Atlanta on Friday. If you are not familiar, Eddie Owen is a bit of a living legend. He helped find and launch the careers of Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland), John Mayer, The Indigo Girls, Shawn Mullins, and others. So, to say the least, we were excited to play. We had an absolute blast. His new venue, the Red Clay Theater, in Duluth, is awesome. You should definitely check it out. Our performance video will be up on www.omplive.com in just a couple of days. I hope you enjoy!
