Fans of Weekend Warrior Worship know Jeff McCullough well. As you know, Jeff’s Tree Hill Media studio in Escondido, California is where Weekend Warrior Worship’s sound on ‘Your Word’ was crafted. As we released the record, many people told us that, while they loved the music, they couldn’t quite grasp why we called it ‘Weekend Warrior Worship’, because our recordings and songwriting sounded as good as anything out there. When we explain that our songwriters are weekend warriors and not necessarily music industry veterans or well-known worship artists, people got it, but, as they say, if you have to explain it, you have lost the image battle.
In the spirit of matching the image we portray to our music, we have decided to launch Weekend Warrior Worship’s professional recording projects under a new name that gives credit where credit is due. Therefore we are naming our professional recording project ‘Tree Hill Collective’.
Now for the best part – new music! Tree Hill Collective has gone into the studio to record eight new tracks encompassing contributions from a total of seven songwriters. The plan is to launch a full-length CD in the next few weeks with these new efforts, plus the best from ‘Your Word’, all produced by Jeff McCullough and featuring many of the same artists plus a few new faces.
After recognizing the quality of our professional recordings and our contributions to the indie worship movement, our friends at AllAboutWorship.com decided to include three new tracks from our forthcoming release on their new All About Worship Collective, Volume 2. This record is a compendium of great indie and signed worship artists, many of whom you will know, such as:
- Rend Collective Experiment
- The City Harmonic
- Matt Papa
- All Son’s and Daughters
- Sovereign Grace Music
- …many more
We are proud to have our songs and recordings featured on this great project. Until April 10, 2012, you can download it for free on NoiseTrade here, and get the chord charts for our three songs plus all the others on the project here. As of Jan 11th, AAW Collective, Volume 2, was the #2 download on NoiseTrade, with over 1,500 downloads in the first day alone! Tree Hill Collective’s songs on this project are:
- O For a Thousand Tongues / Hallelujah (Mark Snyder, Jeff McCullough)
- We Shall Overcome (Kelly Puckett, Wisdom Moon)
- A Way to You (Timothy A. Hageland, Wisdom Moon)
Please follow the Tree Hill Collective as we take the next step on this journey. Our song values and commitment to providing the very best grass-roots worship resources to the church remain the same. Tree Hill Collective’s contact links are:
