Thanks must go first to Jesus Christ who is Lord of all, Son of God, Saviour, Alpha and Omega, Redeemer, Friend, King…and more!

Thanks also to:

John Merriman and Bill Sherrington at Crown Lane Studio for their dedication and for sticking with what evolved into something of a cumbersome project (how many vocal tracks in the end??) – your editing, mixing, mastering and consistent musical listening was excellent and much valued! Thanks also to all the other assistants and staff at Crown Lane – and not to forget Tariro coffee house!

Martin Nolan for saying yes to the project, and being able to promptly send over a well-recorded and nicely-played part which worked well in our arrangements/mixes! What a privilege to be able to have the pipes on the record!

The ‘sisters of string’! AJ and Lou you have a great sound! Thanks also to Louise for her wonderful soulful vocals!

New Life for the Cajon and Henry George for the percussion (even if he doesn’t remember that I had it at the time!).

Phil Merriman for coming in and playing his brand new 5-string Fender Jazz on More Than Conquerors! What a sweet sound! And what a lovely chap too!

Mark Pierce for contributing extra vocals and general entertaining texts throughout the whole process.

Jon Darby for his guitar, vocals and friendship! And for driving all that way for the half day of recording!

Caz George for her vocals – sorry you got cut from MTC – my fault! Lovely contribution to Invitation Song and Heavenly Father!

Various mentors in worship: Henry and Jon, aforementioned, who I have the pleasure of working with in Ichthus; Chris Orange, who has afforded me some great opportunities over the last few years; and special thanks to Graham for his advice and input on my songs and the work that transformed ‘Holy Overshadowing’!

Dan Lovell for the artwork – especially as his new daughter arrived at virtually the same time! I’ll be coming your way again Dan!

Guild for making a hand-crafted guitar which was in my price-range and still sounds big and gorgeous. And D’Addario for their EXP strings.
