LIFE:

“It’s Rhythm and Melody.  It’s dissonance and tension.  It’s living, listening, praying, breathing, responding, and being silent.  It’s giving, being, and loving.

Music is the expression. Life is the song!””


ABOUT:

Austin, Texas has been home to us since 2002.  Lovers of Austin culture, great food, and the arts, my family believes that creativity is an extension of life and our faith.

 I love writing songs about the grace and love found in Christ!  There is just something special about taking a great melody and coupling it with powerful, gospel-centered lyrics.  They touch the soul like nothing else.  Sometimes a song can go to places that a sermon just cannot. 

 Serving as worship pastor of Austin Ridge Bible Church since 2007, I believe that all worship is a response to a creative and compelling God.  When you see how awesome God really is, you can’t help but be in awe!  I have been leading worship for most of my life.  Growing up in a ministry home, I had the opportunity to lead songs in front of church starting at a young age.  From youth camps and college ministries to concerts and my local church, I’ve led worship all over the country.  I feel incredibly humbled and privileged, though, to worship and serve with the people at Austin Ridge.

Eddie and his wife, Lindy, live on a hill with a picturesque backyard and enjoy movies, jogging, Torchy's Tacos, and spending time with their daughters, Kadison and Karissa.


CREATIVE PROCESS:

“If God is a creator then won’t we find our greatest fulfillment in creating, too?”
