Seeing doubles: Brenton Brown, my twin and Justin my in-style hero

Brentonrich The fabulous Brenton Brown is nearly a twin!  He writes worship music, leads worship and is good-looking.  So, there you have it.  We are twins…almost.  Today, I had the privilege of spending some time with my re:create pals at a songwriting workshop at the EMI Christian Publishing building near Nashville.  I love the WorshipTogether people and how they have helped facilitate the modern worship movement!

The songwriter panel that we dialogged with was impressive, to say the least:  Brenton Brown, Matt Maher, Leeland Mooring, Marc Byrd and Steve Hildalong (Marc and Steve wrote “God of Wonders”). So, the songwriting inspiration will hopefully spawn some new material from me.  I will keep you, my faithful readers, posted.

Justinrich Some of the WorshipTogether execs chimed in and gave some valuable advice to us.  But, I may have blown it with Ed DeGarmo, the president of this gang, since the night before I told him I was one of those “old” guys who remembers his former band DeGarmo & Key Band. Oops!  I should have said “older” something…oh well.

While we are on the subject of twins….Justin Adams and I are twins in this pic with navy pea coats and faux hawk hairdos. I think Justin not only rocks alot with his guitar, but dang, Justin knows how to dress!  My hero.

One idea I have is to invent a worship leader hair product.  Anointing oil turned into hair cream?  Any thoughts?
