photo 2Hi, my name’s David. I write worship songs and sing them.

But up until a few years ago, I never thought my songs were any good. I convinced myself that my songs could never compare to the big worship artists. I could never “make it” as a songwriter.

I was wrong.

I believe there is a generation of worship songwriters rising up who aren’t writing to be known. They are writing for their churches. They’re not content to keep their songs in a notebook.

It’s time to release what’s inside.
