Who's at the Door?

"My Name is blasphemed continually every day. Therefore My people shall know My Name - therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks: ‘Behold, it is I.' " ~ Isaiah 52:5-6
"The Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Originator of God’s creation says:
'I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.
Because you say, "I’m rich - I have become wealthy and need nothing," and you don’t know that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you may be rich, white clothes so that you may be dressed and your shameful nakedness not be exposed, and ointment to spread on your eyes so that you may see.
As many as I Love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent.
Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me.
To those who are victorious I will give the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also won the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne.'
Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches." ~ Revelation 3:14-22

Biography

Music, especially gospel music is part of my life blood. Some of my earliest memories involve Sunday afternoons singing and playing gospel music with my family. My grandma, Annie Ruth Krienke was a multi-instrumentalist, and we all sang and played the piano. My Dad, Arvid was the choir director and music leader at our Church in South Bend, Indiana. He sang in many gospel quartets over the years, and even had an album published with The King's Quartet.
Having grown up in the 70's, my biggest musical influence was Elton John, who's piano playing and singing I worked diligently to imitate. Then, during middle school & high school I got involved in a partying lifestyle that pulled me far away from my Christian roots. It was then that I began composing my own songs. Later, in the mid 80's I played the local nightclub circuit as keyboardist/singer with the band Justus.
But God comes in places unlooked for - unexpectedly.
After committing myself to the work of the Gospel, I served for three years as Praise & Worship Leader at a local church. During that time I began writing and recording songs during my rehearsal time in a home office/studio that I had set up. One thing led to another, and then with the expert guidance of an old friend, Paul Ellis, I learned how to mix and master my recordings.
My first album, "Up from the Roots", released independantly in April of 2010, was the outcome of those first recordings, and is a mixture of original variations of classic hymns, interspersed with some of my own compositions.
I continued to improve my recording technique, and released "Songs from 7th Street" later that year, followed by "Christemasse".
The next year I released "The Hymnal", followed by "Climbing Higher".
In 2012 I put together "Out of the Dark", which is a compilation album that contains all of my original compositions.
In 2015 I released thirty-nine of my early practice recordings, that were available exclusively on my website via Bandcamp. They have recently been retracted, to be remastered as new releases that will be coming in 2019 ... to be announced soon.
