The Mind of Christ or Something Else

Mitch Ham | 11.01.11



Do we conduct ourselves in a way that Jesus would? Do we have compassion the way He would have compassion? Have we made up our own definition of compassion? Are we just religious? The fact is, we may have all failed in these areas at times. Before we go any further, let me add when I say religious, I am not discounting pure religion as mentioned in James 1:27 which says: “RELIGION that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans…

SKY

 This song was written with one of the best friends I have ever known: Chip Story. In the early 90's we formed a metal band called EXIT PLAN with our new found friend Greg Manuel. We were the three piece from hell. We wrote this song to counteract everything else we were grinding out (oh yes,, and we were grinding). We were a family! As the date of Chip's death is upon me, I decided to track this epic song as some sort of spiritual upheaval to honor a fallen friend. A man I…

Here's the typical phone talker:

  • Your face upper face goes inactive. When you don't use your eyes, eyebrows and mask area while sounding your voice, your vocal ceiling (soft palate, back of nasal…

The value of Songwriter Feedback Meetings

This is simple...

 

I regularly participate in a monthly meeting, first tuesday of every month, in a meeting of writers called "the writers' guild" that is hosted by David Hampton at Christ Community Church.  It's not intended to be a meeting of songwriters focused on sacred music because of where it meets.  It's just hosted there because the arts are integral to the community, and it's a central place to do it.  Simple enough.  I often attend to listen and offer thoughts, not…

The Missing Of ME

In these strange days I find I am a ghost in my own life. Can I forgive these blood stained hands and heal the scares that have slid outta sight. As our audience has come to know,, I suffered in the Great Nashville Flood and lost things that money could never dream…

I Truly Miss Imperfection

I've been working on a project for a while now that I've truly enjoyed working on.  It's full of imperfection.  I've felt so free as I've done it.  It's simply a joy to work on. One of the best parts of it has been cutting backing vocals.  As I've had various singers come in to cut parts, I've chosen more mature singers that remember what it was like before auto-tune and melodyne came into being.  These folks are one-take wonders due to their experience and maturity.  They actually take the…

“Booking THE Gig” by Bryan Duncan

One of the main reasons rock stars are so short on gratitude is their failure to understand what their agents have to do to book them. If you have the latest hit on the radio or a million dollar ad campaign year not gonna be too hard to book. But most of us are just short of a couple a side jobs to pay the rent. Inflating your monetary value over the phone is always harder…
