"The experience was packed with all the emotions of creation, wonder, excitement, mystery ... and more wonder."
I'm a fan of what the folks at United Assembly in Seneca, SC are doing musically. Having worked with good friend and drummer Ricky Pedrotti on several albums over the years, I was excited to work with him on our latest collaboration - "Reach".
"Reach" is the first studio album for the house band, and the first album of original songs written by Pastor Stephen Stopher and Ricky Pedrotti.
"Recording a project like this has always been on my mind. Working with Mckelvie took it from thought to reality. The experience was packed with all the emotions of creation, wonder, excitement, mystery ... and more wonder. But as I listened to each song, I realized a dream. And now [it's time] to share it ..." - Pastor Stephen Stopher
It's a first for me as well. It's my first time working with great guys like Jeremiah Ruth (guitar), Kris Jones (guitar) and Adam "Buddy" Urso (bass). One of my musical heroes, Christopher Branch, lends acoustic on a few tunes. My great friend Nathan "Riff" Musick gives us some incredible electric lead hooks to remember.
The 10-song CD will be available for purchase online and at select retailers in May.
Buy "Reach" on iTunes, Facebook, CD Baby, Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, Spotify & Google Play.
