Old Faithfuls – May 2020
On June 1st 2020 I released my first ever dive into the history of contemporary gospel music. The album begins in western Kentucky with a Baptist folk-ballad “I am a Pilgrim” and ends in Georgiana, Alabama with a thumb-picking arrangement of Hank Williams “I Saw The Light”. How Great Thou Art reaches back to my earliest memories of morning mass at a Catholic cathedral in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada.
This is the first album I did not write and also marks a significant change in production, as the album was recorded mostly by myself with a guitar, during lockdowns. I’ve found these songs and the grace of God to provide me with a new hope during the pandemic years. I hope these hymns will bring you some hope wherever in the world you might be hearing them! This album is NOT available on Spotify, or Apple Music.
