about

I wrote "Just Doin' Your Thing" in minutes. It was like a flash flood of rhyming, coherent, poetic pictures of my life. Josh Garrels was trying to find some samples to replace a click-track for me to record another song to and the rhythm sparked a creative moment. We freestyled for a while and there was a melody that took shape. At the time I remember it feeling very Rolling Stones, and I wanted to get it roughed out as quickly as possible. He went for a potty break and by the time he returned the words had found the page. Straight away we made a quicktime video to capture the energy of the song, the melody and the rhythm.

At the end of that day we were sitting in the studio talking about lot's of different stuff. I mentioned the song we'd sketched out and how it would be a good idea to record this with Enter the Worship Circle and keep it very raw and unrefined. Josh's reaction was like, "that would be cool," but his tone reflected his doubt of it every coming to pass. A couple months later we were setting up studio time with Ben Pasley and his crew in Woodland Park, Colorado. He said a guy named Dave who lived in a hundred-year-old renovated church was going to engineer the project. It ended up being a guy named Aaron, and was a great time of family and music. The best part is that I met two of my best friends in the world that weekend, Aaron Strumpel (Elephants/Enter the Worship Circle vol.4) and David Wilton (A boy and his kite productions/St. Idas). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that this song means and has created.

I hope you like this distortion-ridden autobiographical mess of a masterpiece and Josh Garrels' prophetically awesome rap as the bridge. It's super powerful.

My context is that we have a maker who is endless, matchless and thus worthy of praise. I am not a product of my own doing. I believe in Yeshua, the messiah and savior of the human race and that He, along with the Father and the Spirit first loved us. The promise is for eternal life apart from the consequence of sin. To know Him is the reward, and I hold that this is life in its fullest iteration. ... more
