I just wanted to take a second to remind you how blessed I am to have Ryan & Danielle Axtell as friends of mine. I’ve been so honored to have been able to walk alongside Ryan during these past months as God has given and taken away with the loss of their first child. Ryan has never ceased to amaze me with his capacity to follow Jesus into ‘This Valley’. He has been relentless to dig in to find out how God could use this tragedy for His glory. Ryan and Danielle have traversed this trial with honor, integrity, humility, authenticity and yet anchored in the hope we have in Jesus. I only hope I can do my ‘valley’ with that level of respect and honor!
That being said, I could think of no greater thing than for all of us to come out Thursday night, April 15th 2010, to support Ryan and Danielle with the release of ‘This Valley’ his brand new CD. Out of ‘This Valley’ birthed songs rooted in the word and telling the God story in their lives. Ryan has worked vigorously on this project and the album sounds AWESOME!! The release is tomorrow night at 7pm in the auditorium at Cornerstone Chandler. Nyke our Camber Pastor will be interviewing Ryan about the still birth of their first child and all that has come with this hard season for he and Danielle. It will be a powerful time to share in music, story and community. Bring your family and friends to come enjoy this night!
If you can’t make it out to Arizona for the show, but, want to purchase his new Album CLICK HERE!!
My amazing Promise designed all the artwork for Ryan. I think she did a KILLER job and, yes, I am totally biased! 🙂

So back in the day I used to go to a lot of ‘shows’. Where I grew up in Southern California in the 90’s it was a mecca for a lot of REALLY good music. One of my all time favorite bands in Jr. High/High School was a band on Tooth and Nail (BEC) called Plankeye. They had a fresh poppy, melodic sound and they were incredibly fun to watch live. I’ve probably seen these guys like 20 times in my life. HA. Anyways, I woke up this morning remembering the good old days and much to my surprise a lot of the peeps that follow me on Twitter liked Plankeye too.
So…for those of you that don’t have a clue…well…here are few videos I found of Plankeye. You can see where some of my musical influences came from back in the day. Who were some of your favorite 90’s bands?!
BC was one of the songs I really liked by these guys. There album Commonwealth was my favorite record they made.
My brother and I used to jam ‘Open House’ in the garage when we were kids. HAHA. So rad. Actually, so RADICOOL!!!
‘Goodbye’ was the closing credit song on one of The Real World seasons at the turn of the Millennium.
Good times…RIGHT?!?! Plankeye needs to do an original band flashback tour!!

We had a great time with Chris Sligh, Meredith Andrews and their band a couple weeks back here in Arizona. We played with them at a fundraiser event in Tempe, AZ. They’re all great people with amazing Kingdom-Minded hearts. A real good time hang with them. These are some photos taken by Whitney Law, from O.C., she got some great photos of Brayline.
