The Sonlight Experience

THE EXPERIENCE IS COMING
SUN. DEC. 2, 2006 -7 p.m. @ Sonlight Fellowship in South Bend, IN!

To commemorate the evening, Tim has been prepping a special CD project as a special gift for a select number of people who attend the event.  The CD, titled “The Sonlight Experience” is a unique project in itself.  It started off as a practice CD for Tim and his worship team at the church.  The purpose of the CD was to cram in as many of the songs the group does on a routine basis for practice purposes, therefore Tim recorded himself playing the piano and singing at Sonlight Fellowship – but only a verse & chorus of each tune.  So the songs average out to under 2 minutes per song, and the CD holds over 40 of the greatest songs ever written.  Upon listening back to the collection, Tim was inspired to take this a step further, and recorded guitars and additional vocals in his home studio to beef up the recordings creating a unique 80-minute flowing worship experience in itself.

“At first I thought it was gonna kinda be agrevating having the songs switching so fast right when you were getting into them, but upon listening back to it I was really moved and inspired and so I decided to incorporate it into The Experience, and I think others will really get a kick out of it”  –  Timothy Michael

The CD, “The Sonlight Experience”, is now temporarily available for a total FREE download as a ZIP file of all 43 tracks here

For now, you can preview the first song from the CD at the link below…

PS3 day!

PS3  Congratulations to Gilleand Brother – Andy, for recieving one of the limited 400,000 launch-day PlayStation 3’s.  Andy braved the element for 11 hours outside of GameStop.  He was the first in line!  The second person in line arrived 10 hours and 45 minutes later, 15 min. before the store opened.  Thats 98% of the time along.  GB David kept him company and GB Mom also froze in a nearby vehicle.  Andy had his PS3 pre-ordered over a month ago.  The store employee, upon arriving to open the store asked him how long he’d been there, then continued to ask “WHY?”   LOL!

Anywho, Andy now has his PS3/Blu-Ray player, and ISN’T selling, although the $600 machines are going for thousands on eBay!!  Heck, his spot in line alone could’ve been bought for at least $500!  Oh well… it will sure go good with his new 36-in. LCD HDTV!!

Timothy Michael – “Going”

Timothy Michael is currently working on a tribute project to the brand-new Newsboys album “GO”.  Tim has been recording each song in his own studio, completly re-creating each song note for note, part for part. 

“Basically, it’s a project that allows me to flex my creativity, while develop my instrument playing and studio recording.  It’s really exciting to see if I can replicate what I hear.  I don’t know if I’ll go through with the entire album, in fact I don’t know if I can, but I am actually about half way there already!”

A mock album cover has also been created based on the original cover – see it here.

“If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we’re obviously lying through our teeth—we’re not living what we claim. But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin.”
—  1 John 1:6  (Message)
