Since 2013 we haven’t been able to get over the original raw (and mostly spontaneous) recordings that inspired the studio album Garden. These songs have circulated in our community for years. They've become little bits of our history albeit unbeknownst to most of our listeners. Our Monthly EP subscribers helped us see this as they celebrated and encouraged us to share these with the rest of our world. These are again our fishes and loaves that we hope will become more than just songs but journeys into the Presence, into Love, and into more clearer seeing.
We picked 12 songs for this release, all 9 of the original "Garden songs," plus 3 new ones that we liked. All the songs will be out tomorrow.
We’re excited about these versions. They’re pretty vulnerable and rough, but they feel right. The timing feels right and we're excited to share them with you.
These songs don’t exist because we decided to sit down and write them but only because our community floundered collectively until we had words that made sense for the moment. These songs are prayers, they are reminders, they are intercession for ourselves and for each other. A huge thank you goes to everyone who showed up, participated and contributed their voice. These songs are for you, they are for our families, they are for those moments when we need to remember a little bit of deep truth. Our gratitude, respect and love is with each of you.
Take a listen to the album
