3 keys to writing great songs

Writing anything is hard. If you’re like me, you’re never satisfied. Looking back at your old material is like puberty - painfully awkward and, unfortunately, part of growing up.
In my band "No Longer Music", I have very strict rules about what I expect in terms of holiness—not because I am legalistic, but because I know that as Christians in a position of public influence, God will hold us to a higher standard (James 3:1).

Making space for the Spirit

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
- Acts 2: 46 & 47

Recently, I came across an interview with Selena Gomez. In the video, she very candidly talked about being a Christian, and I thought “wow, that’s encouraging.” And she’s not alone, haven’t you heard? Justin Bieber is cool with Jesus too.

Jesus knew the scene. Jesus knows the scene

Back in 2010 my band started playing a few shows in the busy hardcore scene of Guarulhos, São Paulo (Brazil). One time a few of the members of another band came over and said, “I like your message, we want to share this message in our band too!”

Heaven and Hell at the Jaap Eden Hall

We have used many different ways to demonstrate the Cross over the years. One time, my band was invited to play at the Jaap Edenhall in Amsterdam. Slayer was booked the night before, so the local newspapers dubbed the event “Heaven and Hell at the Jaap Eden Hall.”

Breaking free from the Rat Race

They call us starving artists for a reason, and while most of us have plenty of food to eat, everything beyond that tends to be a struggle.

How Jesus met a radical Muslim

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. - Romans 15:4
