just add…Horns – Can I hear the arrangements?

  I'm thrilled to introduce the just add...Horns series to our catalog! These are 'Modular Horn Arrangements for Modern Worship'.

This way the worship leader and rhythm section can do the arrangement however they would [...]

just add…Horns Hand Signals MAKE THIS EASY!!!!

Where are we? Where did we repeat back to? Is that the bridge? Is this the last time? I'll admit it. It is 'possible' that I have A.D.D. Squirrel! So sometimes when we're in the middle of a song that repeats a decent amount, I find myself trying to make sure I remember where we [...]

Behind the Scenes – Retro Hymns 2 – The Horns!

Roger Breland has said for years that the horns were the icing on the cake.   I gotta be honest...I LOVE ICING!   My creative process for a song in Retro Hymns 2: I've picked the song. I've figured a 'general groove' idea. I went to my drummer friend Tom's studio and he created some [...]

Behind the Scenes – Retro Hymns 2 – Recording the Rhythm Section (Tracking)

So I've got my songs picked out. I've got arrangements figured out. I have a road map created. It gets really, really fun at this point. If you read this blog much, you'll see that I reference Lari Goss quite a bunch. I've said it before a bunch, but if you're new here...I moved to [...]

Behind the Scenes – Retro Hymns 2 – Arranging w/The Nashville Number System

  Clinton Roemer, Staedtler Mars Plastic Eraser, Judy Green Sheet Music That's my 'upbringing'. For a pretty large collection of folks, those words probably don't mean anything. But, for a good number of folks (maybe age 40 and older), this is how you began.   A yellow legal pad. This idea represents so many things [...]

Have you heard Retro Hymns 2

After <many> months of planning, writing, recording, mixing, editing and uploading, I am thrilled to announce that Retro Hymns 2 is now HERE! The last 6 months have been a fun journey of me playing my horn (trumpet) a whole lot. What began as me doing an arrangement of God Bless the USA for Lee [...]

K-Love Cruise 2016, the Double Sea Horns and Danny Gokey

In my previous update I mentioned playing trumpet on the K-Love Cruise in the 'Double Sea Horns'. As a result of a conversation with one of our neighbors, Chad Mattson (Unspoken), we ended up playing with Unspoken on their brand new song 'Higher' for their concerts on the ship. That night after the concerts (2 [...]

K-Love Cruise 2016, the Double Sea Horns and Unspoken

I talked in a previous post about my experiences arranging music for the Duck Commander Cruise, RamCorps and Lee Greenwood. I 'officially' met a now dear friend, Mark Brannon, who is the CEO of Memphis Based travel company Premier. Mark is a great guy, and best of all...he's a trumpet player. (And a good one [...]

Christmas in Black and White created by Jeff Slaughter

I wrote a horn arrangement for one of Jeff Slaughter's songs from a VBS collection he did with Brentwood-Benson Publishing. The next Christmas, he had this idea for a children's Christmas musical based around a penguin polar pet park. My friend, Jonathan Crumpton, VP of Brentwood-Benson, called and said, "We're doing this new musical with [...]
