Ever since writing for Enter the Worship Circle, I cannot get away from the Psalms. There is no other template for prayer that seems as honest and beautiful and hard and uplifting.

So on two separate days, I spent some time with the book and my 1940′s Parlor guitar, an old instrument that makes me write differently…about an hour each day…chronicling my heart and thoughts in evening prayers…hence the title Vespers 1&2…

So, grab a cup of coffee, sit and listen…if you love the work, consider using it in prayer experiences, listening parties, blogging reflections, fbook updates, subwoofer tests…


Seriously, it’s your word to your friends that helps me continue to make songs and make them well…I don’t have a label machine to hustle my work, it’s all directly from me to you…

…so thank you for loving my work and thank you for sharing it!


p.s. Bloggers are starting to get ahold of it and seem to be liking it! :)

"'Vespers' is an EP just released, inspired by the Psalms, expressed by a human who seems to be utterly engaged with all that means. It is much softer than 'Elephants', as you may imagine evening prayers to be, but no less real for that. In fact, at times, this music is heartbreakingly vulnerable. It is truly devotional, without a trace of schmultz."


"The songs seem to embody the transition time: from darkness into light, from night into day, from the slavery of hiding into freedom. The tones blossom from deep black-sand into the salty and fresh brine of the sea. The rhythm guides the soul into the morning of a new life, into the melody of renewal."

- Andrew Watson, Chaplain, George Fox University

HERE are some random thoughts about stuff: In 2009, my family and I took our first trip to Greenbelt.  We didn't just *go* to Greenbelt, we DID GREENBELT. A group of friends came along and joined us as we modeled our unique articulations of community and playful collaboration.  Before we went, the festival had seemed to us to be a bit enigmatic, shrouded 'neath an imaginary cloud of the…See More

“There is plenty of courage among us for the abstract but not for the concrete.” - Helen Keller

“Love, like truth and beauty, is concrete. Love is not fundamentally a sweet feeling; not, at heart, a matter of sentiment, attachment, or being "drawn toward." Love is active, effective, a matter of making reciprocal and mutually beneficial relation with one's friends and enemies. Love creates righteousness, or justice, here on earth. To make love is to make justice. As advocates and activists for justice know, loving involves struggle, resistance, risk.” - Carter Heyward
