We are so excited to finally have begun our new Cd. There are many who have shown interest in the process of making a Cd and so we would like to invite you to join us on this journey. We will be posting a series entitled “Anatomy of a Cd”. Each post will contain a stage of the process.
Stage 1 – Song Selection/Songwriting
This is probably one of the most tedious, time consuming and important parts of making a Cd. Rich spends more time on this process than anyone. On this project it took listening to 100′s of songs to find 10. There are times when you put in 50 songs in a row and feel as if you will never find anything. Then all of a sudden a song starts playing that grabs your heart and you know that you’ve found something special. That happened over and over again for this recording. We are thankful to have songs on this project from amazing songwriters such as Kenna Turner West, Tony Wood, John Lemonis, Rebecca Peck and more…
We are finished with Stage I and so excited about the songs that God has lead us to. Be looking for our next post on Stage 2 – Tracking (will will be including photos/video).
