A Year Without Sunlight


Robert Payne MusicA little more than a year in the making, my friend Robert Payne is ready to officially announce the release of his new album – Sunlight.  The official release date is Tuesday, Oct 23rd (but its available on iTunes a little early).  In about the span of a year, Robert was able to raise 100% of the cash through Kickstarter, write the music, assemble the musicians, record the album and launch it on time… a job well done!!!

This album is a collection of original worship songs written by Robert with some help from friends Rocky Searan and Adam Searan.  Robert also enlisted some other amazing musicians to get the job done: Danny Ortega, Eric Borgen, Dan Tomlinson, David Ellis, Jonathan Kingsley, Thomas Porter, Monna Payne, Ralph Patlan and a few others.   The production on this record is top notch!  The sound is of a country / rock / blues vibe and although each song has a distinct sound all its own, the album is a great, cohesive compilation of the style of music that is Robert Payne.  Throughout the record you can hear Payne’s original vocal and guitar-playing styles, but you can also hear the influences of Jacob Dylan, John Mayer and a few others.  Bottom line…get this record.

I was honored that Robert would ask me to shoot the photos for his album.  In September of last year, we began the process of shooting promos shots.  At the time, the album was only an idea.  We shot downtown Phoenix and captured Robert in a setting where he feels completely at home – urban.

A year later, Robert contacted me to shoot the photos for the album art.  Concept complete, we headed out to downtown Phoenix to capture – Sunlight.

A consummate musician and worship leader at North Phoenix Baptist Church; I have had the privilege of hearing him play his music often. Robert is not only a guitarist or a vocalist but a musician that can play many instruments.  He also contributed to another friend’s album – The Broken and the Blamed by David Ellis (another UH-MAZING album).  Robert is solid in his faith and has been a great sounding board for me in many areas of life: calling, parenting, creativity, art, etc.  Robert has become a good friend of mine over the past few years. Thank you, Robert for your encouragement and contribution to me and the communities you serve.
