Record Label: None
Julia Palmer: Thanks! If you mean "unique" is a good thing, haha! I've been listening to Lecrae a lot lately and I know he has to have influenced me. We've always been into Radiohead, Daftpunk, M83, New Edition. We like a wide variety of styles!
Julia: We have been worship pastors at various churches that we have attended over the years. Sometimes as fill-ins, on rotation, or on staff as the worship pastors at one church for two years. We took a break from leading when our 3 kids were babies. Recently, the church we attend has a lot of worship leaders (it's connected to a Christian college) and so, because we are not needed there, we have been focused on recording. I'm an ordained pastor in the Foursquare Church.
Julia: Thank you! That's our 1982 Korg Poly 61 synth. We love vintage synths!
Julia: Usually, Mark will start a song and get the foundation of it. Then he will show it to me and then I will put a melody and lyrics to it. Then we work on it together as it evolves. We have been collecting synths, drum machines, and various instruments for years. We have a deep well of amazing instruments we can go to to create a vibe or a specific sound. We almost always begin the songwriting process by programming our Roland TR-808 with a beat and working the song forward from there.
Julia: That's our favorite song, too! Mark had pretty much "finished" the instrumentation of that song and then showed it to me and, right away, the idea of the lyrics took shape in my head. The music immediately made me think of the Garden of Eden, but it also sounded sad to me. I could picture Adam and Eve being ashamed and God calling out to them. Then the music picks up and seemed declarative of something good! Then there is the bridge and, again, the music seemed to just speak to me that it was the voice of God calling out repeatedly to them.
Julia: I don't think so, but you never know.
Julia: This is a really hard question! I guess Radiohead's In Rainbows because I can't imagine getting tired of it. And when I want to listen to worship music, I could just sit down and play that myself :)
