The story of this project began several years ago, through prayer I started to feel a pressing that God put upon my heart. I felt a calling to record an album with the intention to engage in spiritual warfare with anointed songs of peace and rest. As years went on, I became more aware of who I am as a musician, and I began to realize specifically that God has placed a unique anointing on my life to create atmospheres of rest through Worship. “Lila (pronounced Lee-lah) & The Night Watchman,” was a three-year process of writing and recording songs.
Though it’s predominantly instrumental, what many wouldn’t know about this album is that many of the instrumental pieces were actually written with lyrics. Every song on this album tells a story of my life; a life full of happiness and sorrow, wholeness and brokenness, love and heartache. This cd is somehow able to gradually illustrate my life journey. My life, just like the album begins and ends in the mercy of Christ.
