What I’m up to right now:
(click the pictures for more info)
I’ve just finished a music composition degree at Biola University! Well, I walked. Still one summer class to finish: Chinese Three. Silly.
I’m working at my church Redeemer as a part-time worship leader and songwriter — yes they commission me to write songs! Like mozart! I’m really grateful for the way my church supports art. I’ve also just taken on a part time role at Redeemer mowing lawns and such. 🙂
Brother James is my solo project lifting off this spring/summer. I’ve got dozens of songs that need to be recorded but for now I’m playing homeshows whenever possible — invite me over sometime to share some songs and stories! I’d love for you to be a part of this project, so swing over to Patreon to become a patron!
I’ve recently released an EP that represents a culmination of my time at Biola in the music program and in Torrey — in fact recording this EP was my Torrey thesis. It’s a good distillation of what I gained from Biola. It’s a bit of a rallying cry for the union of Christians in the life of the Trinity, bringing unity especially to the divided people of America. This EP is bringing together my work with The Portion, Biola, and Under the Belltower all into one project so it’s really exciting to see all of this finally come together.
As part of my work as a worship intern at Biola, I’ve been writing and recording a song once a week for the past two semesters at Biola for their Thursday “Morning Prayer” chapel. I started releasing these songs (of which there are now 20) once a week, so head to the Morning Prayer page for the currently available songs!
Recently my brother John and I tried writing and recording a Christmas song. We tossed it up on the internet and people seemed to really like it. So we’re in the process of trying some more writing and recording together. The hope is to release a Christmas EP in the fall which includes this year’s song. We’ll see!
What is a now page?
“Most websites have a link that says “about”. It goes to a page that tells you something about the background of this person or business. For short, people just call it an “about page”.
Most websites have a link that says “contact”. It goes to a page that tells you how to contact this person or business. For short, people just call it a “contact page”.
So a website with a link that says “now” goes to a page that tells you what this person is focused on at this point in their life. For short, we call it a “now page”.
See examples by browsing nownownow.com.”
