Pixie has been heavily influenced by classical poetry. She uses her favorite pieces as the basis for her songs, borrowing the words of these iconic poets as lyrics for her songs. In recent years, Pixie has spent most of her time rehearsing and performing in her church as part of the worship team. Pixie knows that her voice is ultimately a gift from God and she uses it to glorify Him. Future songs she writes and records will be praise to Jesus, the lyrics of which will come from Scripture and other Christian inspiration.
Music is a gift from God in all its beauty and majesty. I thank my Creator for each day that He allows me to sing and glorify Him.
I think I'm living it! When my church calls me to sing on Sundays, it's the highlight of my week.Otherwise, I'm open to becoming a member of a Christian band.
The Gospel message: Did you know that Jesus Christ, your maker, loves you? You can trust Him in that He died on the cross so that your sins (and believe me, you and I have sins!) are completely paid for! You can believe this. Why did He do it? Because He wants you to trust in Him and know that you are completely washed clean in His eyes. Why does He want you to be spotless from sin? So that one day you can stand before him and be with Him eternally! <3
"Solitude" by Candlemass. Yes, before I was a Christian I walked dark paths and loved dark music.
I listen to Christian pop radio and, of course, sing along. Otherwise, I stream ambient electronica.
The Lord! I make a joyful noise to Him!
The gospel message, of course, lol.
I really love when I sing my best, not because I want to look good for my sake, but for the glory of God. When I do well, it's because He is superintending my voice. I want to give Him my best, which comes from him, exclusively, anyway.
In most cases, unless you're a faith-based musician, it's a dark, dark world. Sin has ruined many musicians. Also, there is no money in it for most of us. But that shows our dedication to music itself, because most of us do it for our passion for music, not fame or wealth. In my opinion, most of the famous singers out there are just front pieces for a corporation and have less musical merit than most of us. For example, if you depend on Autotune, you should NOT be a famous singer.
I'm just starting to get to know it with my husband's help.It reminds me of Garage Band from years ago, but much better!
See above. I have strong opinions, but I could add that Christian music, while there is an industry for it, is often overlooked as a serious genre. My music here is NOT Christian, but most of the poets whose words I used for my lyrics, were.
Most of the local scene in my sleepy beach town are cover artists and good performers. There isn't much for me to be able to do to promote a scene that doesn't really exist. The last time my husband and I went out to support a band of a coworker, we got looked at strangely because we obviously weren't punk, lol.
Integrity. Don't give in the the evils that the industry calls you to in order to "be successful." It's better to reach a small audience without compromising your principles than it is to be famous and lost in darkness forever.
Torsion Effect! :)
