Springfield, OH – Popular worship singer and songwriter, Rick Lee James, is crowdfunding his latest album on Indiegogo.
James’ new album, Thunder, consists of 9 original songs and 1 never-before released song by the renowned Rich Mullins. “My goal for this album,” James says, “is to create a musical journey that calls the listener to worship God, not only in our joys and triumphs, but through the struggles and pains of life as well.”
Inspiration for Thunder came from James’ joy and life struggles over the past couple of years. “I feel like I have been through some large peaks and valleys in life,” James says. “The songs I’m putting on this album are songs of worship, but they are also songs that deal with hard things I have been through with my family, my friends and my church.”
Thunder encompasses a wide variety of topics, such as death of loved ones, difficult theological matters and fun proclamations of joy. “My hope is that the music on this album will not only have the highest musical quality,” James says, “but that it will be a tool used by God to draw worship from His people, no matter what circumstance of life we find ourselves in.”
The title of the album, however, was inspired by a never-before released song by the late Rich Mullins. “The song is called Thunder and I love it so much that I decided to give the album the same title,” James states. “The lyrics really speak to me and it played a huge part in inspiring me to write this album.”
Thunder is produced by Chris Hoisington of Brothers McClurg and recorded with the talented team at Old Bear Studio near Buffalo, New York. Donors to James’ crowdfunding campaign will receive two songs from Thunder immediately upon pre-order.
James has a previously recorded album, “Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations” which he co-released with Lifeway Worship, and also hosts a popular Christian Podcast called Voices in My Head. James’ music has been featured in CCM Magazine, Worship Leader Magazine and on CCLI’s website.
