Old demos

Hey boys and girls, I found some old demos I did back in the 80s. You thought the other stuff was tacky!... but it was the 80s after all. I've got a few more, might just post the ones that aren't too embarrassing.

The CCC student project was done as part of the CCC Creative Arts course when I taught there for a while. Students wrote the lyrics and I did the music - I ended up singing this one as the girl who wrote the lyrics couldn't sing. I can't remember who she was so if you are out there and find this let me know!

You'll find it in the Jim's Music tab.

Min's Songs

Min has written some amazing songs over the years but unfortunatley we haven't had a chance to record the newer ones or do justice to the older ones.

I've published one called Draw Me in the Media Player. The recording is live at a Living Waters conference and was taken straight from the mix so its very rough, but it gives you an idea.

I would really love to record Min's songs very soon as we are unsure of the future and I believe she has so much to offer yet. I believe her songs should be out there for all to hear - although I am biased!

Return to Grace

Well, I bit the bullet and finally uploaded the album I did back in 95. Listening to it now makes me cringe, some of the sounds are dated and it waffles on a bit, but then it was made to put on and just chill to. It makes no demands on you and wasn't meant to have catchy melodies. It was just to "meditate" to and hopefully take you to a closer place with Father.

I have never got around to recording newer stuff and spent most of my musical time worship leading, and lately not much of anything. But it's churning around in my head and heart to get back to it and create something far more up to date, unusual, inspiring, risky, soothing and universal, sort of... well, yeah... So as time and resources start to open up you never know what might happen.

I have some old demo suff as well I might put up soon.
