Two New Songs

Both this and last week’s songs by Julia for #songaweek2016 were recorded as Cabin of Love songs. Week 42’s song is “Shy Girl,” and week 41’s was “Long Hard Fall.”

Turn to Love

Here’s Julia’s song for Week 27 of #songaweek2016:


Hymn Number 22

. . . because it’s Week 22 of #songaweek2016! With rich backing vocals from Nathan on the chorus, and a velvety organ to round it all out.


Every Moment Matters

Julia’s song for Week 21 of #songaweek2016! Bass! Shaker! Tambourine! Djembe! Uh, maybe some other stuff! See what you hear here:



Nathan got out the drum set for Julia’s song for Week 19 of #songaweek2016. But this time, it’s not a rock song! Dark and dreamy, friends . . .


Blinding Noise

Another rock song for Week 18 of #songaweek2016. In which Julia recorded a bass line instead of Nathan who usually plays bass, because Nathan was busy patching the kitchen floor and the song needed to get submitted in time. That’s just how we roll . . . or rock . . . or both?

The words are a poem I wrote last year, and I set it to music this past week.
