The Genesis Project
It's that time again. Time for a new album! I'm so excited about it and can't wait until it's released. The album is called "Genesis." The meaning of the word genesis is the coming into being of something; the origin. The name of the album came to me after writing all of my songs actually. When I listened to the overall theme and feel of each song that's when I realized they all mostly have one thing in common. They talk about areas in life where you have a fresh start, where you wipe the slate clean, when you start a new relationship, you leave your mistakes behind and forge ahead to what's new or what's to come. That's when it hit me. This entire album is all about new beginnings. And the word genesis seems to sum it all up perfectly.
In the weeks to come, until the album is released, I will be writing and sharing the album production process with you. I will post videos, pictures of me in the studio, experiences with other musicians, demos, and much more. So stay tuned, you don't want to miss it.
For now I will leave you with more insight about the album artwork and other thoughts on the album concept...
It reminds me of the growth stages of plants. They start with a seed in the ground. The seed sprouts roots then it breaks through the earth with a strong stem and eventually buds into a beautiful flower. The plant reproduces and the whole process starts all over again from the beginning. That is the perfect description of our lives as we live it. Isn't it? Everyone starts off as a baby and then we grow into adulthood. In each area of our lives, we experience a genesis where something dies off and a new start begins whether it be in relationships, careers, our personal style, hobbies and everything else leading up to our ultimate beginning - the day we meet God and we see our name in the book of life, then we enter into eternity with Him.
