A new E-CD
that I'm building slowly. The first song, I
Am Yours (To the Day I Die) is to celebrate my
10 years of marriage with my lovely wife, Jennifer,
and was just posted December 17. More songs
I've written for her and the kids and about covenant
family life will be recorded and added to this page.
Darrel Diehl for using his home studio to begin this
new album. And thanks to Darrel and Steve Ashby for
their wonderful musicianship on the new song I Am
Yours (Darrel on guitars, Steve on bass).

Rough and Unpolished!
were recorded in 2005 in a studio at a radio station
I used to work at after hours with my friend, Kenny
Woods, who played the keyboard on with me while I
played acoustic guitar. They are only
sketches. I have intended to use these as
something to build from with professional recordings
for a few different CD/album concepts later on.
As it takes time to save the money, and time is a
premium with three children now (August 2008 as I
write this), who knows when more formal recordings
will happen. In the mean time, I'd like to
share them. Feedback is welcome.
Hopefully you'll hear some of these in a more
produced/polished manner with the band and without
my errors later on. Some of you will recognize
songs that are now in our live concert sets that
have evolved since the time of this recording.
RTB guitarist, Darrel Diehl, has recently acquired
some home studio recording equipment, so we aim to
put some new stuff down and share more in such a
manner soon. So stay tuned (as always, pun
is probably worth mentioning that some of these
songs are really old (pre marriage -- one should be
obvious) and some were brand new at the time of the
recording session. So they span quite a bit of
time and periods of my life growing in Christ and
growing a family.
Woods just winged it on the keys that night on these
songs. He's amazing, isn't he!?

the struggles of a once flourishing local economy,
the title track “RiverTown Warning” inspires
this album’s theme: a life metaphor reminding us
that nothing on Earth lasts, and how just when you
think you have it all together the bottom can drop
out from under you. Nothing promises permanence:
no city, no job, no fancy education, no body.
So you can only put your hope in the
eternal God who never changes, and whose promises
of eternal life in Christ last forever.

The title highlights
Scripture that Grant clung to during a difficult time in his life to trust
Christ to provide. Again and again.
