So why the Bible? And why Unplugged?
For 30 years I taught the Bible to adults at different churches in Miami. I would teach it as a 40 part series, beginning with a summary of the whole thing as a framework for the rest of the classes. That summary eventually became its own presentation.
Switching hats, for 40 years (and counting) I've been a musician, performing mostly classic rock, first in rock bands (back in the 80s and 90s) and solo with the acoustic guitar ever since.
In 2015, a back injury forced me to stop performing for a couple of years, which gave me time to set my Bible summary to music. I always wanted to do a "Godspell" or "Jesus Christ Superstar" type album, but one that covered the Old and New Testaments, not just the Gospels. Since I had presented the Bible summary enough times to memorize it, the 12 songs pretty much wrote themselves. After I recovered from my injury, I started presenting it at different churches, and the response was overwhelming.
In January of 2020 I retired from my day job as an I/T engineer to pursue music full time... yep, right in time for the pandemic! While it basically pulled the rug out from under my gigging feet, it also became an opportunity to re-record the album, and hopefully I will be able to present it live again soon.
