Awake - Fran's latest cd

awake_cvr_for_web_site_cropped.jpg

"Fran and his music have both woken me up to the startling reality of divine love through the years.  Imagine my delight, then, upon hearing his new CD.  I now open my eyes to "Awake" every morning--first the bells, then the singing--which bring me to consciousness in more ways than one.  I don't know what to call it--heart, clarity, vision, soul--but there is so much of it in Fran's songs that I cannot hear his voice without receiving more of these gifts myself."
 ~ Barbara Brown Taylor

"I hope this recording will be a helpful resource on a variety of levels; for personal meditation, as a source of music for worship, as a companion for morning and evening devotion, and as a river to sit by for awhile, that you might let its waters flow in and around your life."

~ Fran McKendree

RISE - CD

Rise                

Music is a part of what keeps us alive and kicking -  songs are often like good friends that appear when you need them most.  I hope I have gathered here in these songs some friends that speak of our hopefulness and our resilience.  Friends that have come together to call out the dreams and strengths that live deep within us.  The best kind of friends....friends that tell the truth, and are not afraid to demand that that truth rise from you.
   ~ Fran
