Re: Collaborations Outside of Petra

Ok, I found the one I watched the other day. It is on their Facebook page. It says they are recording some songs to be released soon. That was back in september. I don't see that song for purchase, but I do see a bunch of other mp3s available on Amazon. Some of them have the band pictured, including...

John Lawry is on keys with the Jay Sekulow band.
But I don't think he ever recorded any studio material with them.
Not sure on that. There's video of them recording a song that's available to purchase, and Lawry is on keys.

CCM United

I thought this was interesting. I bet many of us could offer comments and speculation. I'm working from my parents house, and the TV was on one of the Christian channels. They're running an ad for the CCM United DVD; being promoted as We Will Stand. Apparently the Gaither empire now owns the rights ...

Re: NEW STRYPER VIDEO

LET...HIM...IN. I like the production on this one more so than the previous albums. It almost sounds like they got someone else to mix it.
Nice to really hear Perry's bass in there.

Re: Favorite movie(s)?

I'm not a huge movie person, but I love 80s movies! My favorite movie is Karate Kid :mrgreen: Your's? 1984 or 2010? Do you watch Cobra Kai? Loved Karate Kid. Especially I and II. Didn't care as much for III. I think Cobra Kai, is really well done. I got the free trial of youtube Red to binge the fi...

Re: Petra - Holy Land Tour | November 6 to 15, 2020

How cool is that? I've been there, and it's a life changing experience for sure. We didn't do any of the Jordan stuff though. It was strictly Israel. We stayed longer in some of those places. Looking at the itinerary, it appears that it will be a bit more rushed compared to the trip I was on, or the...

Re: Songwriting

I took a songwriting class in college. One thing that was stressed, and Brent alluded to it, is songs needing to have universal emotion. Meaning, people everywhere can relate to the meaning. If the song is going to name something specific, it is done in such a way that the listener can replace the s...

Re: Petra should do a live concert cd

Sure, they are fantastic musicians. But, the live clips, especially the Farm Aid one, sound much more like Wake Up Call then the Elefante productions. Which is okay, because WUC is indisputably their greatest work from a production standpoint. I really got into Petra during the Elefante era, with Un...

Re: New Song (Fool Runnin) John Schlitt, John Lawry and Rex Carroll

I thought it was very good. Short and sweet. Song and style wise, it reminded me of some of the songs John has done with JSB. The riff is quite nice. And the production and mix are very good. I can't say the same for the other tracks on that page. The other songs are not as tight, and the vocals are...

Re: Fascinating songs

Montana Sky is a great song. The writing on that one is super cool.
Jordan Feliz puts on a great show. He is the next big thing I suppose. My daughter is all about him and the guys from For King and Country.

Re: Used Petra CDS?

I haven't been to any thrift or antique stores lately, but I often find lots of Christian music there. I've seen Petra CDs a few times. Yard sales can also be gold mines for old Christian stuff. I will keep my eyes out. Stuff like Barren Cross, Bloodgood, Mastedon; I got them from eBay. They were no...

Re: First recommendations

Here's another one not mentioned. Liaison. They had some killer albums. I thought the Cool Water album had a 38 Special vibe to it. They were great live. Their left handed drummer was so good. Great footwork and groove. I played in a cover band, and He Smiled was one of our set list staples. The dru...

Re: First recommendations

How about a little love for JAG. Love the dudes voice. Some of the Whiteheart guys were involved with the songwriting and such. I still love the various 80's pop and rock influences in the songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GeyY_XjbuY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GXk6FPRtMw&list=PLX3vEJ8epL7I...
