Debut EP | out now!
I had the blessing to spend almost two weeks in the mountains of North Carolina near Lake Adger. I visited the same area a year prior and had wished I had brought my guitar. The inspiration I receive when in the midst nature - especially trees - is pretty powerful. My prayer was to be inspired enough to write 4 songs. And I was. And this record is the fruit of the inspiration. Recorded simply and with very real feelings.
Psalm 51 is a poignant reminder of the frailty of our human condition. We must rely on God for guidance but also for mercy. This desire for holiness seems to manifest itself in the lyrics of my songs. Along with Psalm 51, I always find great inspiration in the following passage.
"No one experiencing temptation should say, 'I am being tempted by God'; for God is not subject to temptation to evil, and he himself tempts no one. Rather, each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire conceives and brings forth sin, and when sin reaches maturity it gives birth to death." James 1:13-15
But like you, I am much more than just a sinner. I am a husband, a father, a musician, a writer, a worship leader, a record label owner, an entrepreneur, a speaker, an artist, and most of all, I am a man of faith.
The story of my journey from LFO to GOD is a long one which is, and will be, told through my endeavors in music, video, speaking, and writing.
I'm thankful you have stopped by this website to check in on me.
I pray for you and ask you to do the same for me. God Bless.
BIO in BULLET POINTS
Born: New York City 9/11/1975
Grew Up: Mahwah, NJ
LFO: I am 1/3 of the music group LFO. We sold about six million units, most of them between 1999 and 2001. I had the great opportunity to play hundreds of shows all around this world in front of millions of people and appear on dozens of national TV programs in front of an audience numbering in the tens of millions. I learned some very difficult life lessons during the LFO years and I was blessed with friends who became brothers; most notably my bandmates, (Harold) Devin Lima & Rich Cronin.
In 2005, Rich lost his earthly battle with cancer and in doing so, won eternal salvation in the kingdom of Heaven.
In 2017 Devin and I brought LFO back on the road for a very successful tour - The Rich in Love Tour - of mostly East Coast cities. We were in the midst of planning the 2nd and 3rd legs of the tour when Devin was diagnosed with a very large tumor in his abdomen. Today our focus is on Devin's healing. Our hope and prayer is to be back on the road by summer. In the meantime, our brand new single, Perfect 10, is available from all of your favorite digital music providers!
111: When LFO took a hiatus in 2002, I immediately started making plans for a record label. Shortly after I began signing bands and secured a distribution deal with the Warner Music Group. I had the pleasure of releasing albums on many bands including The Spill Canvas, Reign of Kindo, Rookie of the Year, This Day & Age, and Devin Lima.
Corpus Christi: I started as reluctant volunteer at my church in 2009. Today I serve as the director of music and operations.
C7 Worship: C7 is the name given to our Sunday evening church band/choir. Our ministry has grown substantially. As such, we have the opportunity to play outside the walls of our church at special events and conferences.
HE|ME: He is Over Me. He reigns over me (and you) and His will comes before mine (and yours). HE|ME is a Christian media entity focusing on music, film, and the written word.
The Lake Adger Sessions EP is the first release from HE|ME.
