The Holy Land Project

My dad has been writing songs, singing, and playing guitar since he was a teenager. In his younger days he was a big deal in the Chicago music scene. So big that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards came to see him play. He recorded in the legendary Chess studios impressing Muddy Waters, who was also recording there.

He now focuses much of his time on music to glorify God.

He’s been music director for his Catholic parish for over two decades, leading four choirs every weekend. In 2005, he was brought to Cologne, Germany to perform at World Youth Day.

After he and my mom traveled with me on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, he felt called to compose, The Holy Land Project.

He ended up with 33 songs that act as a soundtrack to the Holy Land, and even a soundtrack to our liturgical calendar. All songs were written, performed, and recorded by him.

Below are samples of some of my favorites – in no particular order.
