To record the music of your life is in itself a gift, but to do it with your best friend and the love of your life is a gift beyond explanation. In the 11th year of our marriage, we decided to take the beautiful journey of recording an album together. In the years past, we have soared to the highest heights and traveled to deepest depths and in the end have collected these melodies that are some of the greatest treasures we possess. As songwriters, we write to express the language of our seasons to God and to man. We gladly give these songs to you-the listener, the worshipper-to pour your own heart over....May you find Him as consistently good as we have.
In the autumn of 2010 we moved the furniture out of our house and filled our home with instruments. We invited some incredible musicians, who also happen to be our dearest friends, to spend a week arranging, creating and dreaming into the new songs we had written. The following week, we took these songs into a studio called “Threshing Floor.” The music that we captured in those days is the sound of a family diving deep into the heart of love. At the helm of this grand adventure stood our fearless friend and producer who gave the next year of his life to carefully weave together the songs on this album. There is nothing like being surrounded by a group of friends who fight for your dreams. To have among those friends musicians, artists, and a producer, who all helped bring our hearts and songs alive, is an honor beyond words.
Our favorite part of writing music is how a song can become like a diving board taking you to the deep places. This album is really like being on the shores of what happened that week in the studio. If you want to dive deeper, look for Endless Ocean, Bottomless Sea a double disc collection of the extended versions and experiences of these songs.
