I’ve been singing and making music my whole life. My parent’s rightly joke that I started to sing whole songs before I could speak whole sentences. By the time I was in my late teens I was a steady gigging singer and musician.
I remember being 16 when I was first introduced to “prophetic” praise and worship. I was amazed by how creative and refreshing it was. Soon after this I tried to venture out into the great unknown of prophetic worship with a group of people and… it flopped terribly. As a leader I didn’t have the understanding or ability to either play or communicate what I was thinking or feeling, much less my team of musicians and singers.
Fast forward a few years… I was leading or playing spontaneous worship for 2-4 hours a day on a stage with a full team. 10+ years of this has given me a plethora of tools that I’ve used to train hundreds of adults, teens, and children.
Isaiah 24:16 says, “From the ends of the earth we hear songs of praise, of glory to the Righteous One.” My dream is to release content that trains the nations to sing their new song to the Lord. Join me as a we teach the nations to sing!
