Another Side of Me and Some Free Music to Prove It

Every time I post here at BTR, it’s something special to me. Something meaningful. A piece of who I am or who I’m becoming. It usually comes packaged in words and sentences. As stories or ideas.

But today I want to offer something a little different.

A few years ago, I put together a couple of piano projects. Way back in 2007, we used to attach music to these things called CDs (anyone remember those?), but today’s science fiction world has given me the ability to distribute this music in a much more efficient way.

So today, I want to share one aspect of my musical side with all the readers of Beyond The Risk.

Devotions is an album of original compositions, originally created to enhance your personal time of worship and prayer (although I’ve heard a lot of people use it to put their kids to sleep at night, too). It also contains the song Healing Austin, that I wrote about here a few weeks ago.

I want you to have it.

If you click here or on the graphic above, you can download Devotions for as little as free. New sites like NoiseTrade and Bandcamp allow people to choose their price when downloading an album. Don’t feel any guilt about typing $0. I want you to have this.

As always, one of the most beautiful things you can do for me as an artist and a writer is to share my work with others. Technology makes it so easy. Please forward this link to your friends and family, post it on your social media sites, email it, (heck, print it off and mail a hard copy to your mom).

I would love to get this project to as many people as possible.

Thanks for connecting with me here at BTR. I started this blog to create a place to process my own thoughts and ideas, and I’m still somewhat amazed that so many of you actually seem to read it. Thank you.

Hope you enjoy Devotions.

    Eric we have had this one since it came out. It is one of our favorites.

  3. Many years ago, in my life as a special ed teacher, seven 5th grade students could be heard humming every note of your first cd. It played everyday/all day. Their lives were filled with such chaos outside of my classroom-you had a big part in providing them with, not just a calm place, but God’s healing presence. Now, those melodies are reminders to me about those students. Funny thing, last week, Steve and I were talking about this-he told me I should tell you how important that cd was to me, sooo here it is! Do I get an award for Longest Comment Ever!
