A note about us...
We see songwriting and making records as a part of our vocation to serve the church  and the world, trusting that the Spirit of the Lord will breathe upon the songs and blow them into soil that is ready and waiting--one heart, one home and one congregation at a time. The music is an extension of our lives and is a gift for us to share, in the same way that we would offer a neighbour a jar of homemade jam, a loaf of bread baked in our wood-fired oven, or a hand-crafted bottle of wine.

The albums:

Under the Shadow (new release)

These twelve quiet and sparsely recorded songs, which were written as our two young sons fell asleep, draw their lyrics from the psalms and from our family's joy in and meditation upon the good creation of God.

(Tracks: "Greenwater," "Creator of Orion," "Song of Ascent," "Unless the Lord Builds," "Until You Have Mercy," "When the Glory of the Lord Descends," "Underneath the Shadow," "Fire Temple," "Zion, My Child," "All through the Night," "Light Will Arise," "Everlasting God.")

Rain Down Heaven (2008)

These thirteen songs of pilgrimage, recorded during Holy Week, trace the liturgical Christian year, beginning with Ordinary Time ("Rain Down Heaven" and the hymn "Praise to the Lord! the Almighty"), moving through Advent ("Magnify," "Sing and Rejoice," "Wonderful Counselor") to Epiphany ("He Shall Reign" and "Break their Chains"), then journeying through Lent ("Lord Have Mercy," "The Time is Fulfilled," "O This Night is Dark" and "Lamb of God") to Easter ("Who Will Roll Away the Stone?") and concluding with "How Good and How Sweet it is," a Pentecost song of hope for the journey as we yearn for the Living Way that will dawn when God's Kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven. 

Unless the Seed Falls (2006)

These ten songs of conversion articulate a biblical storyline, one that begins with the creation of the world, witnesses the incarnation, echoes Jesus’ words announcing the kingdom of God, recalls the Hebrew prophets’ strong concern for the most vulnerable, calls us to repentance, seeks a Holy Spirit fire and points us towards a hope in the reconciliation of all things.

(Tracks: "At the Start," "Blessed are the Peacemakers," "Fire of Love," "Gather Around," "May Your Kingdom Come," "Something Like Scales," "Turtledove," "Unless the Seed Falls," "The Lord is My Light," "All Things Reconciled.")
