I started coming up with melodies as a kid on my bike in the neighborhood. In high school I was required to participate in my schools traveling choir and girls group which sang a lot of straight scripture. I wrote my first melody to scripture there in high school one night as a lullaby to sooth me to sleep when I was scared and feeling alone. In my first year of college I discovered how easy it was to use tunes to help me and my friends memorize scripture or even history notes which began my journey of purposefully setting scripture to short tunes and finally recording them.
My first CD, Selah, was produced in my dorm room using garage band as a way to raise money for my trip that summer to China to love on orphans for two weeks. When that cd became a hit among friends and family I decided to produce another one, Shiloh which would include many of my violin compositions as well. Every song (except Ni Wa Wa - which is a Chinese folk song) was written, sung, played, recorded, edited, and produced by me. Its not that I sing well, as I know many of my friends and even many of you can sing better than I can, but rather its a display of my ability to compose and a showcase of everything I've been learning and working on throughout the year. I also enjoy the uniqueness of the harmonies on harmonies that I use to create a fuller acapella sound in the absence of a band.
Thank you for dropping by,
I hope you enjoy listening to Shiloh as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
