Canadian, Jonthan Urie, is a Christian, music composer, song writer, pianist and radio program narrator/ & broadcaster.
Many of the past several years have been devoted to the development of the celebrated Helen Steiner Rice music projectof 20 songs and 5 albums. Part of these formed the basis for Moments of Music and Inspiration radio broadcasts.
HELEN STEINER RICE MUSICAL MOMENTS
The HSR project was recorded "live" in Nashville under the guiding hand of renowned Christian producer, orchestra leader and music director Mr. Bill Walker.
With 27 of Nashville's finest musicians, beautiful orchestrations by Bill Walker and powerful performances by Guy Penrod,
Gary McSpadden, Gail Farrell, Jeanine Walker & Sheila Craig.
A Journey of the Spirit that began 28 year sago has taught Jonathan much about patience, perseverance, the power of prayer, trust, faith, courage and the guiding hand of the Lord.
Along the way many new songs have emerged that reflect the valleys and mountain tops of the Journey of the Spirit.
Many of these moments are part of this CD.
