Debut Album Out on October 29th, 2018!!!
Late on a Wednesday night we loaded random instruments into a car and started driving toward Wimberley, TX. I turned to Chad as he drove and asked him what he was thinking about recording, and he quickly changed the subject. Neither of us had much of an idea what we were going to do, but we had already paid for studio time, so we might as well go and see what happens.
Upon arriving at the studio, we were given a quick tour, then handed a flashlight and bear spray just in case we needed it on the way to the “bunkhouse”. Chad stood at the door for a while taking in the number of spiders he saw hanging from the bunks. It had been an interested journey to finally get the chance to record together to say the least. It all started 10 years ago.
In 2008, my future wife, Sadie, introduced Chad to me. We lead worship together only one time and I played music for his and Alyssa’s wedding. We hardly spoke again for the next nine years because of distance and growing our families. Then, when Sadie and I picked up and moved to Houston, we reconnected. Every Sunday night we started leading worship together and it was effortless and fun. Rarely did we decide on an arrangement ahead of time or play a song the same way twice. Both of us had really developed our skills over the years and found it relaxing to play music together. Each week people would come up to us and ask if we had a CD for sale. It seemed like a simple choice to take the next step. Off to Wimberly, Texas we went.
After waking with no visible signs of bug bites or being eaten by a wild animal, we settled into the studio. For three days we recorded music nonstop, sometimes staying up late to finish writing a song or just figuring out what we were going to do next. We never used a metronome and rarely know what our arrangements would be before hitting record. The environment was perfect, and the Spirit was real. Between the calming natural spring fed river and the deer watching us through the windows, somehow an entire album came together.
This album is the raw expression of who we are as musicians and men who follow Christ.
This album is an honest portrayal of how we sound on any given Sunday night.
This album is Chad and Wade, Three Days in Wimberley.
