OnUsTRUTH

We officially have a name for our group! OnUsTRUTH is a name that Kris Strobeck (one of our tenors) came up with and I love its double meaning. The members are:

Kris Strobeck = Tenor/Lead
Shawn Hanowell = High Tenor/Lead
Me = Baritone/Vocal Percussion
Kovasky Aguiar = Bass/Vocal Percussion

Kris Shawn and I have been meeting for over a year and have been searching for a name (and other members) the entire time, but have had no luck. It's nice to finally have a real name and to be moving forward towards a goal. These guys are awesome and I love hanging and singing with them. We're still looking for another tenor/lead so I'm trying my best to make the contacts I need or if you know someone who would be interested, have them contact me.

Fisrt Album Completed!

A few hours ago I completed the album for New Reign and I'm not sure what to think. It's been a grueling process and at times I felt like my brain was going to lose it. Hopefully this album will get out on iTunes and other places so it's more accessible to everyone. For now it will only be available to purchase from the http://www.oc.edu/performing/newreign/default.aspx site. I'm sure it will take close to a month, maybe less, for the album to be posted. The title of the album is Refuge which is an original song by one of the members. At times I feel quite happy with the way things turned out. There are so many things I wish I could fix or improve, but I'm sure I'll never be satisfied with it ever.

Tracking with New Reign

So I just spent 2 weeks tracking 12 songs for the upcoming New Reign album. Lots of hours were put in, but many more are coming soon. I am currently sitting at the OKC airport ready to fly home. I've missed my family greatly and I'm so ready love on them. Next up I'll be editing like crazy then mixing the album. This group is not you're typical college a'capella group. Tons of talent and a unique sound all around. Check out this quick video I recorded with my phone while they had been working on a chorus section of Inside Out.

Hello

What is this? I'm going to blog again? If there is someone who reads this, then I want you to know that I'm excited about a group I'm a part of. We haven't nailed down a name yet, but we've been recording and I hope to have the first song completed by the end of the week. Currently we are only 3 members, but we are looking for a bass and another tenor. Shawn Hanowell, Kris Strobeck and I have a blast together. We are an all vocal group and our goal is to record 2 albums at the same time. One a concert album and the other a worship album. We want to be able to go into any church or event and be able to lead worship or do special music and a full concert. Shawn and Kris are so talented and a blessing to just be around. Once this song is completed we will be trying to get it up on iTunes and other sites to build a fan base and a little bit of money to get more arrangements. More to come really soon!
