HYMNS Album Is Out


What started as a Christmas/Birthday gift for my wonderful wife had grown into a full album of hymns that my family and many others love.

While I love the art of big production in music, I wanted this album to have a tender quality to it. My wife and I sing many of these songs to our girls at bedtime, so I wanted the album to have that kind of a tender feel. Almost like a lullaby. So the rules were set:

  • Nothing but piano and my voice.
  • Preserve traditional melodies.
  • Keep things simple without being simplistic.
  • Keep things familiar, but also surprising.
  • No gimmicks or fads. This has to feel timeless.

At times this was a tricky project singing softly with very little to hide behind was pretty vulnerable feeling. The piano work required me to blow the dust off my rusty chops.

I’m glad it’s here now though and have already heard stories of the album helping people find peace and rest in the midst of uncertain times.

The album is available for purchase at cdbaby, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.You can also stream it on Spotify and Apple Music.

I’ve included links for your convenience:

  1. Hey aaron, just wanted to let you know I appreciate the timeless sound, and the subtle, tasteful, simplicity of the album. You got it just right. It’s great for devotions and just easy listening! Got here from the article addressing the synthesiser article.. liked your response and found this gem of an album. Thank you!


    • Hi Victor. Thanks so much for the kind words about the album. It’s had a much broader impact on people than I thought. I’m glad it’s working for you. I’m contemplating doing another volume or maybe doing one of Christmas Hymns in the future.
