  • Using Multitracks in Mainstage

    Something that has become very popular in churches is the use of backing tracks or also called “Enhancement” tracks.  Sites like Multitracks.com and LoopCommunity.com provide these multitracks.  Multitracks.com has a wide selection of multitracks and many come from the original studio masters.  A multitrack gives you individual tracks or also called “Stems” for each instrument in the song.  Don’t have a bass player one Sunday, no problem.  Add the bass track to your mix and you are good to go.[…]

  • Church Sound on a Budget

    Let me guess, you have just completed your ump-teenth Sunday with less than desired sound quality. Little old ladies covered their ears as they ran screaming from the building and looks of seething rage were directed at a frustrated sound engineer. The bass player looked down to notice a bright blue light glowing from the inside of his moniter. He gives a worried look to the worship leader and says, “uh, is this a problem?”

  • Photos By Natasha Brown

    Beth and I recently spent some time with Aaron and Natasha Brown. We had a photo shoot and them hung out at a Tapas Bar. Yes I said “Tapas.”. Get your mind out of the gutter:-). Anyway they are a fantastic couple. Aaron is a tremendous guitar player and producer and she is an accomplished pianist and photographer. They both work at Gateway and are highly valued leaders in their fields. Natasha took some amazing photos of us for the[…]

  • Piano Tips

    I studied Classical piano for years and really wouldn’t be the player I am today if it had not been for that grueling period in my life. However, the most impacting experience was a 10 minute session with 57 year black organist in West Texas. My eyes were glued to his fingers and it is the formation of my playing style. I am going share my best tips that I have learned over the years in 10 minute lessons. I[…]

I Am His

Posted by beth.collins On November - 3 - 2011 0 Comment

I Am His will be a 30 day devotional written as a prophetic word for the day. I love to write in my journal about what I believe the Lord is saying, and for years I have written in my journal to God like I would write to a friend. I felt that I should take some of the entries and turn them into a devotional. I also like to write out questions I have for the Lord, and the answers that He gives to my questions.

One of my favorite places is being in His presence. There is nothing like it on earth. I love it when God speaks. It changes everything…especially your way of thinking. This devotional will be a tool to use while spending time in His presence. My desire is to have guest writers be a part of this project. Clay (my husband) who is one of God’s favorites, will write several as well. We also plan to have downloadable MP3’s of original music to play as you read your devotional for the day. I am really looking forward to this project because I believe that it will change hearts as you hear Him speak.

This footage was taken the night of the CD release party. That night I played piano and was a backup vocalist. It was a lot of fun being a part of Zach’s dream. I look forward to seeing great success with this project.

Huge props to Corey Jackson for putting these videos together. You didn’t see him because he is the one taking the videos but he also played a huge part in the CD. He is a musical genius playing just about every instrument across many genres.

In this session my friend Chad is playing the drums. He is one of my favorite drummers and as it turns out, kind of a funny guy too. He is the guy you want to hire when you need it done right.

This is the second installment of the behind the scenes look at the “God and King” recording project. I just want to say right off that these people are saved and love the lord but they are, after all, artists and should be judged accordingly.

It was a great honor to be a part of the Zach Neese recording project “God and King.” Aside from being a great friend, Zach is one of the best worship writers I know. This album is a great mix of contemporary and classic style that is nothing short of amazing and lyrically packs a powerful punch. These videos give a behind the scenes look at the genius and madness of life in the studio.
