I'm honored to be producing two projects that I think are going to be stellar records. Mainly because both of these artists are not only great friends of mine, but two of the best singers I've ever known!
I'm working with Bonnie Keen on a new solo project that will incorporate some of her original songs (which are simply amazing) as well as a few covers such as Carole King's "Way Over Yonder" and a version of Sting's "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You" that will knock your socks off!!
Bonnie Keen is a founding member of the recording trio First Call, receiving three Dove Awards, five Grammy nominations, and an Emmy nomination for her work as a recording artist, author and speaker. Bonnie has performed on “The Grammy Awards”, “Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show” touring the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe with First Call, Amy Grant, Sandi Patty, and Bebe and CeCe Winans and as a solo artist. She has authored three books with Harvest House Publishers. Her personal journey graced the covers of Today’s Christian Woman and Virtue magazine. Her voice is filled with passion and love and this project will showcase that heart!!
Russ Taff is a legend in the field of CCM. Hailed by Billboard magazine as “the single most electrifying voice in Christian music,” Russ Taff has garnered six GRAMMY® Awards and 16 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. Inducted into the GMA Hall of Fame an unprecedented three times— as a soloist, and as a member of The Imperials and the Gaither Vocal Band— Taff’s iconic career has now spanned over four decades.
We are working on a new Christmas record that will recall the textures of Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra, and the legends of that era. But Russ also makes each of these songs sound brand new with his soul-infused voice. I can't wait for everyone to hear this project!!
