In a former life, I wanted to be a worship leader. I had a lot of musically talented friends who sang in the worship band in a non-denominational Christian mega church. I desired to join them under the smokey blue and green stage lights, standing with my guitar in front of the powerpoint cards - decorated with clouds or a green field, upon which the words of a hymn rolled in like holy karaoke. This was a rock n' roll church and I wanted in. The only issue was, I wasn't a smooth and tuned tenor like a lot of the contemporary worship leaders of the day. To compete I would need an edge and for me that was to write my own worship tune .
So, one evening with a fervent heart I sat down with my guitar and waited for the 'Spirit' to lead. As the old adage goes "the lord works in mysterious ways." I did not divinely receive a worship song, rather, I was blessed with a pirate themed break up tune rife with stolen catch phrases from my late great Grandpa Vern.
We worked with the wonderfully talented Damon and Cassandra of Mind Fruit Films to shoot this video. It is low-budget film making at its finest.
