Original music is so hard to create because you have a battle on your hands. The word you want to get out and the Word that God wants you to get out. What God calls you to do may not always be a crowd pleaser but when you do what He calls you to do you will be blessed because of it. God gives us gifts to edify the church but God will also take that gifts if you don't use it... Garden lyrics say this perfectly "Let the songs I sing bring joy to You. Let words I say confess my love. Let the notes I choose be Your favorite tune. Father let my heart be after You."
There is a man named Larry Sims who decided to give a large group of people music lessons. About 20 people showed up including Anna and I. Classes progressed and people stopped coming till it was a small handful of people. We called Stephanie and said "Hey, we need a drummer cause we're going to start a small band and play a few shows at my Uncle Larry's church. She thought it would be fun so she came and we practiced for awhile and then Andrea popped up out of nowhere lol. A classmate of Anna's told her about Andrea, long story short we kept her. Then came Christy who I was training for endurance for school sports. I talked her into coming to a few practices and Larry told her to pick a tambourine up and she started playing with our band. That's pretty much how our band came about.
