Live From The Julian Project
On June 7-10, 2019, about a dozen musicians gathered in Julian, CA. to record a live worship album. Many of us had never met before, but we felt like instant family. We ate together, practiced together, prayed together, wept together, laughed together, slept under the same roof, and most importantly, worshipped together. We recorded 13 songs in 2 full days and 2 half days. This was grueling and exhilarating all at the same time. All the songs were Kate Hurley's originals, but putting the 2 dimensional words into the hands of these amazing artists brought sinew and life to every song. You can watch the 8 minute documentary below.
We are now starting Edenheart Collective to join forces and make more albums in the future. This project was only partially funded for the first stage of recording, but we still need to raise more funds to mix and master the project, as well as put some funds into media and marketing costs.

There are so many people to thank for this album. First and foremost,I want to thank Brian Smith without whom this project could never have happened. I want to thank Matthew Linderman with Mustard Seed Cinema for working so hard on the documentary and other media. He was a joy to work with and did everything tirelessly and with no thought of himself. Gregg and Marill Parker who hosted us at The Julian Project, I respect and love you both so much and you worked so hard to make this dream a reality (including getting four generators when the power went out!) All the musicians that worked on the album... you added so much. Beyond what I imagined. I love all of you: Nick Heward, Nathan Dickerson, Libby Oertel, Emma Wallace, John Holborn, Yvonne Araugo-Schacht, Alicia Rasmussen and our producer / recording engineer Josh Rasmussen. Josh did this project for so little money which he spent most of on equipment. But he said he promised to do this with me and was a man of his word! Aeron Brown whose voice and presence was so powerful on the album and for the incredible artwork. Ethan Elisara for helping film, and Megan and Tyler Williams for letting us film at their beautiful home in Phoenix. And lastly to Aaron Strumpel, my dear and long time friend, for working so hard at mixing the album.
