The process and timing of this recording was interesting.
To me at least.
This demo was recorded on the third day that I began to record demos.
Carmel Corn was the first song to be recorded.
Five days later I recorded, When Life Shows Up.
For my third day of recording, a week later, I recorded 3 songs in one day.
- I Can't Sing
- Yellow Hand
- He Came to Faith
The song, Pour My Ashes was recorded the following day.
So, 4 songs in 2 days.
I also recall doing vocal tracks on 7 songs in one day.
I'll never do that again. I can hear the fatigue on some of the tracks.
When I wrote the lyrics for, He Came to Faith,
the original idea was writing a general song about
someone on a spiritual journey of coming to faith.
But ended up as my own story written in the second person.
I suppose this song is not really a gospel song,
but it has a gospel message.

here's an interview on YouTube.
