Fortress - New EP, New Blogs! 

Posted by Kurt Scobie on July 1, 2015

It has been an exciting first-half of 2015!

I released my very first worship EP in April and it has been quite a ride. If you haven't checked it out yet, I'd love for you to go download it on iTunes (or listen via Spotify, if you must). I am excited to see where God is leading me with these songs. I have already had opportunities to share these songs at different churches where I sing and lead worship. You can check out a couple of those live recordings via SoundCloud.

If you haven't been following along, I have ANOTHER blog where I share my journey as a worship leader. I know you have plenty of reading material on this internet thing, but if you're standing in line at the DMV or something and you're tired of playing Candy Crush, I have a few blogs you can check out.

I wrote a series of 4 posts, that talk more in depth about my thoughts and prayers behind each of the tracks on the "Fortress" EP. For your convenience, I've provided links for you, below. :) Thanks for reading!

Back to the Studio! 

Posted by Kurt Scobie on June 24, 2015

New music is coming.

A couple weeks ago I made the long trek up to Michigan for a quick visit with family and, mainly, to record a new song I have been working on! Jake Rye, producer ("Crash" and "The Hopeful Broken") and bassist (Sanctus Real), put his golden touch on a catchy little tune... that I can't share with you just yet. Sorry!

But, I do have some photos.

I know, I'm not much of a photographer. But, I feel like I am supposed to do this whole social media/blogging thing to make sure you know I'm still alive and creating things. So, this is all you get!

Anyway, here are a few photos from the studio.

We had a blast and I am looking forward to when I will be able to share some new sounds that are in the works. Until then, here are some grainy, poorly lit pictures I took with my camera-phone. Enjoy!

My boy, Justin Boyd, made the trip from Atlanta with me to play drums! He killed it!

Big, scary vocal mic. But, I gave 'er a good fight!

Jake Rye, producer extraordinaire!

Tracking piano and RHODES! :)

Today is an exciting day for me!

I am pleased to share with you the official lyric video for a song from the new EP (coming April 14th). Take a few minutes to check out the video, with a good pair of headphones (your laptop and phone speakers just won't give you the best listening experience), and share it with your friends. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSthnH3wB3M

I know it seems like I talk about Bethel Music constantly. But, they have been releasing some awesome songs. They've got their finger on the pulse of modern worship music and I look forward to each time they release something.

"You Make Me Brave" is a song by Amanda Cook and we love singing this at my church. It is a powerful message of hope and strength.

Here is my rendition. Please take a few minutes to watch and then share it.

"You Make Me Brave" (Bethel Music) - Kurt Scobie [Cover] - recorded live and in one take. Enjoy!


Worship EP Title & Artwork 

Posted by Kurt Scobie on March 14, 2015

Another stage in the album-creation process is complete! In my March Email Update I revealed the artwork and title for the worship EP I have been working on these last few months. My friend Ty did a great job working on designing exactly what I wanted.

It is an exciting and awesome thing to look back and see how one seemingly little idea grew into lyrics, and then songs, and then a full studio project. And now, watching it materialize into an actual CD. It feels like I have been given just a glimpse into what it was like for God to create something from nothing. It is incredible.

This whole project began when I was reading Psalm 91. Words and phrases kept popping out at me as a read and re-read this ancient poem. Eventually melodies and chord progressions followed and a song was born, which became the theme for this whole EP.

Life has been a blur since then. I can't believe that I am about to release this to the world. 

It has been quite a journey, thus far. I hope you'll stick around for what is next. I have some fun stuff planned! And I know God has some things up His sleeve for this, too. Four months ago a new EP was not even on my radar. Now I have a title, artwork, and everything has been sent off for digital distribution and I should be getting physical CDs the beginning of April. I am just so very thankful for this endeavor. And I am pumped for what lies ahead!
