EXCITING UPDATE! This album was picked up by Deseret Book and is now called: Voices of Heaven. You can find it here!
Remember a while back, when I was all, “Oh my husband and I both decided to work from home and be poor and peruse our dreams…” and things like that? Well we’ve been doing that.
One thing my husband, Eric, his music name is Pleasant Pictures, has wanted to do for a very long time is create an album of non-denominational Christian hymns redone all hip and awesome. He started working on this literally the day he stopped working his corporate job, and became consumed by composing, mixing and recording the new melodies for hours and hours at a time. He lost 10lbs (SEXY TIME!) and made some fabulous singers sound even more fabulous.
The album, Music for My King, is compose of 10 songs. Like I said, they are hymns, so if you’re not down with G-O-D (Sister Act 2?) it might not be your thing, but if you are, I’m fairly confident they will knock your socks off.
Eric sings on about 5 of the songs, and worked with some really talented local people and friends to sing on the other 5 tracks.
I mentioned this before, but I wouldn’t have married my man if I wasn’t one million times sold on how talented and amazing he is, both as a person and as a musician. I always dated musicians, and just knew that I would marry one. It was never a criteria for dating or anything, but music has always spoken to me so much. I myself am not musical, but the men I’ve loved, and the man I married, were all the type of musicians that made other musicians stop and say, “If only I could do that.”
And that’s my man. I’m so incredibly in awe of his talent, and so proud to be the wife of the man who made this album. He’s also the best dad.
I’m not saying he’s better than YOUR husband, I’m just saying I’ve got a VERY good one and I’m not going to take that for granted.
Thanks for indulging Alison’s brag-fest 2013.
Eric reads all of my blog comments and Instagram comments and is always so humbled and thrilled when you guys leave kind words. So please know your love and encouragement mean so much to our family and we sincerely appreciate it. I started blogging to share love with people I love, and I’m so happy to have you be a part of that!
Here’s to an amazing week! We are headed to San Diego to visit my parents and a few of my siblings before this baby comes and makes that almost impossible! We are thinking about taking Gigi to Disneyland, but at 32 weeks pregnant I just don’t know if I can do it! Eric and my sister are trying to get me to get a wheelchair…but it just seems wrong. Then again missing Gigi’s face when she sees a giant Pooh Bear or Tigger?! That also seems wrong. Any pregnant Disneyland stories or advice?!
Love you all!
