My newest single “Wings” is now available for streaming from my Reverbnation page. The song has been submitted to iTunes and as soon as that approval process is complete, I’ll share that link. In the meantime, check it out at and please share this link with your friends: http://www.reverbnation.com/lennoxfleary/song/21175282-wings
Numbers aren’t everything, but I want to share with you that I’d really like to see a combined total of 500 or more downloads of this song from iTunes or Reverbnation or any of the other outlets where it’s being posted in the next few weeks. That will help us fund the next song that’s up for production: “My Father’s House.”
We need your help to spread the word, so please share that link: http://www.reverbnation.com/lennoxfleary/song/21175282-wings
Wings, a song re-visited. I am excited and grateful that we have completed this project. I like it that there’s a “we” involved.
“Wings” was re-imagined in collaboration with General Cuffy and Chrissy Green, then recorded and produced by JD at Pyrate LLama Recording studios in Sheridan, Oregon (yes, that’s Sheridan 97378, I couldn’t be more excited about that). Joshua Humlie played drums, Cassio Vianna on keyboards. I contributed acoustic guitar, electric bass, and vocals.
We emailed the rest of the tracks to Cassio, he played his part and emailed back and JD mixed him into the song. Pretty cool that my community is no longer limited by geography, not even a little bit. That immediately brings to mind several other amazing instrumentalists from all over the world, with whom I hope to collaborate on future projects.
Kevin Nettleingham mastered the single, Darlene Taylor shot the cover photo and there you have it, a community-produced piece of art.
Regarding my personal experience with this song, this recording illustrates a shift in my perspective about faith and trust. Faith is about expectation. Imagine I’m in a car on a road trip. God’s driving. Faith is about destinations and checkpoints. I used to have expectations about where we were going. I don’t anymore. I honestly don’t know. I know that I trust the driver and I’m in His car, with no intention of getting out. Trust means “I’m going where you’re going, wherever that is.” Faith is something of a “What” intelligence; Trust is more of a “Who” intelligence.
It’s the same song as it was when I wrote it; I’m not the same man, though.
Different man + same song = New Song.
Enjoy, and thank you for your support.
