I met Danny Gokey about a year ago and have since come to really love him as a person, as an artist, and as someone who is living out his calling in the name of Jesus. I was thrilled when I found out that I'd be working on his upcoming record. By the end of the project I had the privilege of playing on and arranging horns for 4 of the 11 songs on the record (and doing a bit of editing as well). I worked with my friend and mentor, Bernie Herms who produced much of the album. I also worked with Ben Glover, an amazing producer and songwriter who I've admired for a long time. It was such an honor to work on this project and I'm really proud of how it all sounds in the end! It's an amazing record, start to finish.
Special thanks to Barry Green (Trombone), Doug Moffit (Sax), Jimmy Bowland (Sax), and Steve Patrick (Trumpet) played with me in this horns section.
Danny's album is called "Rise" and is out now! Check out "If You Ain't In It", "Slow Down", "What Love Can Do", and "Symptoms" to hear those horns! (Buy the entire record though! It's awesome!)
