There are some worship songs that I really get into. And there are some bands and writers that I especially get into. At the moment, one of the bands that I’m absolutely loving is Rend Collective. They have this funky, Irish-Bluegrass type feel to much of their recordings, and their songs are just great to… Continue reading Win this nation back?

I’ve played in various orchestras over the time, played on stage with a band or two, and had a whole heap of… Continue reading How many instruments can I play?
