finally... an update

Ok, so I've been out of touch for the past week or so and I've got probably a couple posts worth of stuff to share. I'm going to start off with some photos. These first ones were taken by Geof Morris at my show at The Mercy Lounge, here in Nashville, last week. The band was Paul Eckberg on drums, Cason on keys, David Grant on percussion, Chris Weigel on bass and Jason Feller on guitar. Jason didn't get in a single picture. Here are the rest of us...







We had our Caedmon's Band Retreat this week, to sit and talk about the future of the band (records, touring, being independent, etc...) AND to get all of our babies together. Benjamin Young, Sammy Miller and Ella were born within six weeks of each other. Here they are on a popazon chair...



Here are all the kiddos...



Here are some shots Geof sent me from a Caedmon's show in Georgia a few weeks ago (pre-Summer haircut) I thought they were pretty cool...





Todd took this one on his camera phone. He's amazing...



In other news, Shaun Groves linked to this interesting interview on his blog, ahem, his Shlog, the other day... I thought it seemed interesting, and I really want to read the book by this guy on this subject. It's all about Christian music from on outsider's perspective. As someone who has grown more and more disenfranchised with Christian music, and who is also becoming more and more responsible for it, I have been really struggling with the issue of being involved in this subculture. This interview might help start a little dialogue about the issue.

Anyway, that's the quick update on the past week. I'll write again soon with a couple of other things going on. Right now I've got to get ready to go over to 12 South and soundcheck for tonight's show.
