This album we are making right now is all about love. Pure love that only comes from the Father. It is dedicated to all the broken, betrayed, abused and lost people walking around today trying to find something to sooth the pain. Only Jesus can do this. I was one of these and my daughter from India was another. Actually we all are! But Jesus met us where we were and has since healed our wounds and continues to. There are so many others out there who need to hear of His pure love.
As we are working on naming, doing art for the covers, making finishing lyrical choices, and working on vocals we humbly ask you for prayer.
On Christ the solid rock we stand, anything other is sinking sand (Mode).
Tracks are getting ironed out and I am getting my air back and preparing for vocals!!! This is so exciting! The last few months have been difficult. I have literally thought about giving this one up.
Then He stepped in and has shown me that I don’t do this in my own strength, obviously because I run out of breath literally in a 30 min time period of singing. I can not do this without His strength. I wouldn’t want to honestly. I don’t want to do life without Him in the drivers seat.
If you have read the blogs before you might remember I let you know I was doing this a different way this go around. We did think before finding our new producer that we would do it all ourselves, well I am eating those words :). Let me tell you a little about our producer….I found him through His Musican’s Pool. He is a gifted young man named Nathan Yake of Insight Music Production. He is taking our ideas and running with them adding so much to them and making this project come alive.
Would you like to hear just a little bitty of what is to come?!
Well before I let you hear this quick minute long compilation of a few of the songs I wanted to explain why I took Finding Ground off Facebook….I know I did it once again. Facebook has gotten a lot more difficult to work with when it comes to pages and the new rules and regs are making me crazy. So going against the grain here….
I will bring Finding Ground Music back to Facebook because it really is a good tool, but I would like to put it on through a third party this time. I am so not good with social media, but I also know it really helps the music get to where it needs to go. So it will go back up once the third party becomes known to me….:).
Here it is enjoy this little shot into some of the songs!
As you might notice I went and changed my music name once again for the last time. This in the music business is quite a no-no. So let me explain why…..
I have met and worked with some amazing artists, producers, musicians and seen this music come together and still sit in wonder…..is this for real?
We have been in this adventure now for over two years. The words just seem to keep flowing out of my brain and the melodies are finding their ways into the minds and through the music of some incredible producers and composers. I am left in awe of how God is bringing this all together and working it out the way He wants it and in His time. I could not do this alone! Thus the final name change.
For me this really isn’t a dream come true, this is a calling. One that I am honored to answer. One that looks so different from others who are gifted and called to share with the world their music. I do not have the tools, the health, the voice, the knowledge, the energy or the know how to do this. When I am hit with a flare of up it takes me three months to get my air back into my lungs and if I try to stand up and sing well there goes my breath. So He is my strength….literally I need Him to be my breath so I can share the music He brings to my heart.
Finding Ground Music is so much more then just me….Rachel….it is made up of so many amazing people like my honey (Andrew), our producers out of Missouri, our musician friends and the ones who have inspired our love for music but have since found their way Home.
The name Finding Ground comes from the old song Edward Mote, My Hope is Build on Nothing Less. The verse “on Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand” was the inspiration behind the name Finding Ground. My ground is Christ, my desire is for those who hear our music to find their ground in Christ alone.
My story was written in the album a Walk Through Me…..the album coming up will be different….fresh….and an experience. I can’t wait to get it out to you and show you what we have created.
One last thing…..with a band name I am going to need a band! If you build it they will come :)……..right!?
