Music is just a natural part of who I am and how I express my faith. I grew up in The Salvation Army and had a good musical background in brass playing, singing, and contemporary worship. Presently, I am a member of my corps band and worship team. In my professional life, I am the Outreach Mission Partner for Music and Creative Arts in the UK & Republic of Ireland Territory. My music tastes are varied, as are my playing habits, so I have had experiences being part of jazz bands, rock bands, and choirs. As a singer/songwriter, all these experiences as well as my classical composition training have helped develop my God-given gifts. My prayer is that whatever style of music I write, there will be someone who is brought closer to God when they hear it.


Immeasurably More

I have always been comforted by the idea that God is far more than I can imagine or understand. It’s a good job because, like any one person, my experience of the world, perspective, and skill set is limited. The Bible tells us that, “with God all things are possible.” I wanted to express my desire for the God who does immeasurably more to use me to do more than I can do on my own. A lot of modern worship music out there is reflective or “epic” but there seems to be a move away from joyful, upbeat music. I am on a mission to write songs that are full of the joy of the Lord. I hope that Immeasurably More captured something of that!
