All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

"Give them minds ready to receive wisdom and revelation so they will truly know You.
Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the Light of Your Truth flood in.
Shine Your Light on the Hope You are calling them to embrace.
Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance.
Let them see the full extent of Your Power that is at work in those of us who believe, and may it be done according to Your Might and Power. It's this same Might and Resurrection Power that He used in Christ to raise Him from the dead and to position Him at His Right Hand in heaven. There is nothing over Him. He’s above all rule, authority, power, and dominion - over every name invoked - over every title bestowed in this age and the next." ~ Ephesians 1:17-21

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.
