I am a singer/songwriter from Lynchburg, VA and am currently working on a worship album. I have recorded two CDs over the past four years:
"Finding My Way Home,"
I started taking piano lessons when I was 11 years old from an unbelievably talented woman by the name of Julia Wade. She taught 9 instruments fluently and based her training methods on composition and creativity. Each lesson was two hours long and included other students studying different instruments. Julia knew the importance of teaching younger students to make music with others at an early age. I had been taking lessons with her for close to 3 years when she was tragically killed by a drunk driver at age 41. I stopped playing. I couldn't bear it. Everything that I knew how to play, she had written or taught me. I tried taking lessons with several other teachers, but no longer found passion in music.
I sank into a deep depression the summer after 10th grade and didn't know if I would ever recover. I slept close to 18 hours a day and found no joy in life. One day, I started to play again. I had fiddled here and there, but this particular time I PLAYED, and I kept playing. I played for weeks on end and transferred all my emotion and frustration into my musical compositions. The Holy Spirit really came down and began to heal me through this time. "Finding My Way Home" is my first CD compiling 11 of these original soothing compositions that helped bring healing to my soul.
They are $5.00 and available at Myspace.com/Jeremywitt. You can listen to 7 of the 11 tracks on that page as well.
"Calling Off the Future"
"Calling Off the Future" is composed of 13 eclectic piano ballads. The content isn't particularly offensive and contains biblical allusions, but is more appropriately classified as a secular CD. It was written under the pen name "Voice of a Child." ... More info to come.
