Part Of The Gift, 2018

This was a fun piece to write, and one of my favorite choral works (so far). It’s dedicated to Fr. Robert Hawkins, the former pastor at St. Luke’s, and was originally performed at his retirement mass in June of 2018. The title is taken from one of his best-loved homilies. It wasn’t easy to record, since we were so scattered (Caroline literally ‘phoned’ her part in from Maryland), but as always, the vocalists of Listen Above brought the words to life. It has also been performed by the Mt. Hope Vocal Ensemble.

Released as a single in October, 2018. Please check our website for tour dates and more information about the band.
The SATB arrangement is available through JW Pepper and SheetMusicPlus.

Listen Above (self-titled), 2016

The idea behind Listen Above is very simple: write songs with a universal, positive, message, and put a band behind them that sounds like the best of all the 70s hard rock bands wrapped up in one. By far, our favorite review referred to the song “Your Love Prevails” as sounding like ‘Linda Ronstadt fronting Deep Purple’. That was the idea, exactly. This album (and band) turned out to be very popular, and features some incredibly talented musicians, including Luke Imbusch of The Rare Occasions on drums.

Album originally released in August, 2016. Please check our website for tour dates and more information about the band.
