It's been a while since we've been able to share what's going on with us...which is a lot! We are pregnant with baby #2, staying active in our wonderful home congregation, Keren Ohr, getting ready for the first Messianic Worship Conference with Meuchad and of course Toby is back to school and we're ever wrangling our tiny human that we already have.
Lots of great things, but lots of things nonetheless!
In the midst of all of this, we began to experiment with what OUR sound really is outside of a congregational setting, and that has been one of the most exciting and freeing experiences for us. That's part of what we want to share with you today! We absolutely love writing songs that we can all use in our congregations to glorify the Lord, but we also just love to sit and play what comes out of our hearts and souls naturally that maybe is different from what you'd hear a worship leader play. This new sound, which for you will be new but for us will be an old familiar feeling, is what our album contains.
So what is our sound? It's a blend of lots of musical influences throughout both our lives. If we had to term it something, it would be "folk worship" which is really exciting to us. Messianic music is broadening and welcoming more sounds and styles, and we hope to part of that diversity.
Hill & Valley is the name of our first album, but it is also what we are calling ourselves in this expression of our music. Why "Hill & Valley"? Throughout this life, God takes us through some amazing experiences that makes you feel on top of the world. He also remains by our side as we trudge through the harder and lower points in our lives. In either place, God's love, mercy and faithfulness never leaves us. "Hill and Valley" is our own reminder of this beautiful and unwavering truth.
We are not really big on huge amounts of self-promotion...it's just not who we are; so that's why you haven't seen a whole lot of posts about the album. However, we are REALLY excited about sharing the music we feel God has given us and we truly pray it blesses those who listen. "Hill & Valley" will be released November 2016 and we will have more details as it gets closer!
We love and thank you all for following us all these years and see you soon!
Toby + Brooke
