Not only were we absolutely blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity of making our very first CD, and right in our own, home studio, but we are moving right along in the recording of our second one!
Recording from home certainly provides extreme benefits, one of which being that you are on your own time schedule where there is no clock to limit the hours of effort poured into what it takes to create the songs we aspire to. This is a huge deal, as studio time adds up so quickly that before long you are paying more money to make the CD than it’s worth. As we came to the realization of this sometime last year, we made the unanimous decision to work towards purchasing the equipment necessary for the recording of our albums at our own, home studio. This has not only been a luxury alone, but a toilsome journey that is still in the process of flight. Learning to use the equipment was a whole other story, but after coming from the entire experience of creating and producing the first Parousia CD, He Leadeth Me, we have settled within ourselves that “we can take this.” Yes, we are all girls, and yes… we have had to somehow delve into our inner girl power in the conquering of this glorious battle of the raging and mysterious unknowns……!!
God’s Holy Spirit was truly that inner strength within us, and through His guiding alone, we made it alive through the toils and snares that seemed to meet us every which direction we only peeked at through a slight crack in the door. By His grace, here we are, and now… after such a journey as that first CD put us through, we are more fully equipped and aware of what is inevitably ahead of us.
The contents of this next album will be almost fully comprised of original songs written by each of us, in addition to a few traditional ones that we are including. Almost all songs directed towards the praising and glorifying of Jesus Christ are wonderful, but to hear the ones that are sung by the actual writer… that is where you get a glimpse of what is truly in their heart.
We look forward tremendously to taking the next step after recording all of these tracks, and that is… mixing! This part would only bring us closer to our goal, and so we press on with one little bit at a time, increasingly nearing our destination with every new day. We have yet to name this next album, but will solve this very slight dilemma soon. God bless you, and thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
