About "The Bible Unplugged"

So why the Bible? And why Unplugged? 

For 30 years I taught the Bible to adults at different churches in Miami. Each year I would begin with a summary of the whole thing as an intro to the rest of the class. That summary eventually became its own presentation.

Switching hats, I've been a musician, performing mostly classic rock, first in bands back in the 80s and 90s, before going solo with the acoustic guitar and never looking back.

In 2015, a back injury forced me to stop performing for a couple of years, giving 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 whole Bible, not just the Gospels. After recovering from my injury, I started presenting the musical summary at different churches, and the response has been amazing.

In January of 2020 I retired from my day job as an I/T engineer to pursue music full time, right in time for the pandemic! Taking advantage again of the unplanned down time, I updated the songs to include the piano, and plan to release it soon.

Unplugged... and Debugged

To get the most out of "The Bible Unplugged" the first time, listen to this version that has short (2 to 3 minute) intros to each song, narrating the story for you. If you can stay with me for all 12 stories (which should take about an hour), you will have gotten the whole story from start to finish!

Then you won't need the introductions any more, and you can refresh the story just by listening to the songs (the whole point of the album). I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed composing it.

In order condense the story like this I had to leave out a considerable amount of detail, but there is enough to be an effective (and hopefully fun) way to get the whole story in one shot!
