Two More Videos

Here are a few more music videos.

As book things pick up, I’m not sure if I’ll get any other songs recorded, but I wanted to get at least these done before Mother’s Day.

You see…

My mom, Lynn S. Lund, is my musical inspiration and hero. She’s composed and taught music for as long as I can remember.  She’s the reason I started writing music, the reason I’ve played the piano since I could reach the keys.

I love her so much!

But she lives in Utah, and I live in Michigan. She’s always asking me what music I’m working on. This was the easiest way to show her.

So here are two videos.

The first song is a vocal solo sung by the amazing Jen Petersen. Jen is one of those soloists that makes accompanying a joy. She has a gorgeous voice and a great feel for music. I could seriously listen to her all day long. I’m soooo glad she agreed to record this song for me. She’s the best.

What you hopefully can’t hear is our three little kids playing in the background. It’s always fun trying to record with kids in the house, but they were very patient with us. Jen’s kids are adorable. My son was thrilled to have friends to play with.

And here’s the other song, a piano solo recorded in the middle of the day, although it doesn’t look like it. :)

My first (sort of) Music Video, Plus Some Basement Photos

Hey! How’s everyone doing?

I’ve been MIA since March Book Madness. Sorry. I can’t believe how fast time has flown. I’ve been painting, mudding, taping, sanding, mudding some more, painting some more, and then touching everything up in an effort to finish our basement. We got carpet last Friday, so it’s finally done!

Our six year project is finished.

YAY!!!

With the basement done and finished, I decided to finish another project I’ve wanted to do for many years: record my music. Sadly, I think the new carpet is what inspired me, because my living room has never looked so nice. Might as well document it before it gets trashed, right? :)

Here are the first two videos

My hymn arrangement of “A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief.”

The second is a short little etude I wrote a few years ago.

I’ll keep posting as I have time to record.

As part of this little experiment, I’m offering my music FREE for a limited time. Just email me and let me know what you’d like. There’s only one song I can’t offer for free (For There’s A Savior Born), but all the others are up for grabs, so drop me a note here.

Okay. Here are the pics:

A fun way to decorate the kids’ toy room – Each kid picked a color and painted their hand prints on the wall. They kids loved doing it, and I’m sure the room will be a favorite as they outgrow their own hand prints.

We only painted two of the walls in the toy room because we didn’t want it to be too busy.

To paint the flowers, we started with the oldest kid and had them do the outside ring. After it dried, we did the ring next, slowly moving to the center. It turned out great!

My teen son told me he wanted navy blue and neon green stripes for his room. I was skeptical, but it turned out awesome. One wall has the stripes, then one is blue, one is green, and the last is white. I’m so glad I gave into his crazy idea. :)

This family room looks boring after the other pictures, but this is what most of the basement looks like. I’m so thrilled. You should have seen it before…

New carpet. Yay!!!
