Interview John-Paul Gentile

‘Give sticks away, give cymbals away, give everything away!’
This quickly sums up John-Paul Gentile (Bethel Music): a generous, warm and open-hearted man who has so many valuable things to share. During his California road trip in 2015, Ruud connected with John-Paul right outside of the Bethel Campus (sorry for the poor audio, it was quite windy outside) for a great conversation about worship, the ‘Bethel Sound’, playing multiple instruments, spontaneous worship, Jesus the Son of Man and the lifestyle of giving. ‘Hang out with the people you play with and be vulnerable with them, get to know the people behind the cameras, move with your worship leader and give everything away!’

Scott Davis on recording Kim Walker’s ‘Wild Heart’

Amazing interview with Scott Davis about his playing on Kim Walker’s album ‘Wild Heart’.
‘There’s a lot of fear and anxiety in our society right now, people are afraid of this virus, they’re afraid they are gonna loose their job or not, what’s gonna happen to them, all these things, and I think some of the lyrics of this record ‘Wild Heart’ really speak to that and how God is good and He’s gonna take of you and that we can trust Him.’

Interview Ben Smith

Ben Smith is a super friendly and positive guy, fantastic drummer who’s played for LZ7, Matt Redman, New Wine Worship, Shackleton and other bands & artists. Ben and I met at OneRock Festival in Germany in 2013, where Ben was playing with LZ7. We connected afterwards and we’ve been staying in touch ever since. As we haven’t seen each other in real-life, we thought it would be a great idea to do an interview via e-mail. Have fun and learn from Ben, as he’s got a lot of great stuff to share!

Interview Robert Sput Searight

‘It’s about helping the younger generation be better than you were.’ Wow, what a powerful statement by Robert Sput Searight, drummer for Snarky Puppy and Ghost-Note! We had a wonderful conservation about growing up with music, his relationship with God, the importance of community and relationships, having mentors, tuning drums, playing with Nate Werth in Snarky Puppy and working with Bishop T.D. Jakes.
