This is Jason Gatlin.
As you might guess from the picture, he's the mastermind behind all the music I've been doing for the past year. He is a big fan of Starbucks, as you can see from the two Venti Starbucks cups on the desk. (I also had one; it's not pictured here.)
We spend lots of time brainstorming and just trying to get stuff done in the studio, and we did just that last night.
"Where's the heart?"
"Tell it from your gut!"
"One more time.."
"You can do better."
"I need more."
"What do you think?"
"Think just a tad higher; I know you can hit it."
"Put more passion into it - it's all about you!"
"You're the boss."
These are just a few phrases that I hear on a regular basis when I'm recording with Jason. He also frequently says "That was delish.." or "For the love of St. Patrick." That's actually a new one that he came up with yesterday.
But anyways, we're almost done! We're sending the EP off to be mixed/mastered on Friday! And from there we'll get the rest of it done...the EP should be done by the end of February and the rest will soon follow! I'm so excited - God is so good!

And as a final note, I absolutely LOVE Psalm 34!
"I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth."
