About our service:
This service will explore the toxic myths of scarcity and the liberating truth of sufficiency. The myth of scarcity tells us that there is not enough for everyone. It leads to clinging tightly to what we have and neglecting to share our resources with others. Living from a sense of sufficiency means knowing that there is enough, and we are enough.
Born in the big city of Atlanta, GA . . . and raised on a dirt road in the country . . . he took his early musical influences from FM radio. Pop, country, blues, reggae, “alternative” rock, classic rock, funk, soul, disco. All of it. From that broad spectrum of musical influences, he cultivated his unique style as a singer and as a songwriter. Drawn to the music that tugged at his emotions . . . he found magic at the beautiful intersection of country, blues & soul. And now that magic lives in him. Without any formal training, one can’t help but call his music folk. It’s very unique. The sound, the strum, the feeling. Whether you’re listening to a song from his last record…or the singing of Amazing Grace acapella . . . his music is very sincere and very real. He gets lost in it. It takes him over. If you close your eyes . . . it will take you somewhere. You can’t help but feel it.
