A message from Peter Link

With the fall always comes great energy! Not that we haven’t already been burning on all burners of late! But somehow the cooler weather always gets us moving at a different pace.

Looking back, the summer was special. We hope you each will get a chance to take a look at our Special Edition Newsletter entitled “Commemorative Reflection On Julia Wade’s National Tour” coming out this week. It reflects a tremendous success by our much loved president, Julia Wade, having now finished her 2014 National Tour which took her from Northwest to Southwest to Midwest crossing the U.S. several times in the past year. It’s our tribute and yours to a monumental effort on both our part and yours to bring Inspirational music of a high quality to your cities. It’s full of great pics and your comments on the impact of the tour on thousands across the U.S.

Also we signed many new composers and artists bringing you their special music and talents -- Noah Marlowe, 12 year old Broadway actor and singer extraordinaire, new composers Mary March, Kate Lawson Gould and brand new composer, Terry J. Barham! Christian music singer and composer, Richie Abanes also Joined the fold and also the beautiful Nitya Thomas debuted with her new CD, Awakenings.

We also can’t forget the unforgettable – Rebecca Minor’s great new CD, Chasing Light!

On top of all that, our mainstay artists and composers just keep crankin’ it out. New instrumental music by Ron DiSalvio, Jay and Tessa Frost and Elizabeth Ragsdale has simply poured in, and new DSM songs from Carolyn Kardinal, Nicholas Schliapin, Robert Collister, Amy Duncan and Nitya Thomas have been added to their pages.

On the Watchfire New Media scene, June and July’s historic website sale has brought us a rush of all sorts of projects making our lives busier than expected and wondrously creative. Watch this month for the release points of both First Church of Christ, Scientist, London, Canada’s new website and Tara Buzash’s very cool new site, Sweet Harmony, a site that recommends musicians for weddings and all kinds of social events.

What’s coming is simply too much to mention in this column, but we promise a fall of many new websites and much new music – both recorded and digital sheet music. Special emphasis this month will go to new church instrumentals for preludes, offertories and postludes. Watch next door’s What’s New? column for further announcements.

Last words …

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ~Lauren DeStefano,

“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.” ~Samuel Butler

Stay Tuned,


Peter Link
Creative Director
