The basics have begun…and I still need your help in reaching the ultimate goal After just ten days, The Grey (When Black & White Fade)’s initial goal of $9000 has been met. I am excited that the album will, in fact, happen. With the new assurance, I recently just finished up the beginning stages of recording work. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many. I am never surprised by your giving. We have partnered in the past…and it continues. I still need your help. The initial goal was set lower than the album’s actual budget. This was done in hopes that the goal would be reached and The Grey (When Black & White Fade) would receive “some” funding. This has happened, and the process is well under way!

The Love of God is beyond calculation, yet, we often measure life in black and white. This album explores the grey of life and love. “The Grey (When Black & White Fade)” is both a response and a result. It is a response to God’s grace and it is the result of the Lord’s activity in my life. It is a response to the availability of the Kingdom of God and it is a result of walking through the Kingdom as best as I can. It is a response to the many great people that have been involved in my life and it is a result of their investing themselves in me. “The Grey (When Black & White Fade)” will consist of 10 or 11 songs. It is my goal to release it on September 16, 2014.

We were sitting in a fuzzy’s taco shop in Dallas.

Rick: How are things going?
Mitch:Things are going good. Things are always going good. That doesn’t mean they’re not hard. That doesn’t mean things are always going as I planned them to. I’m continuing to do what I have for years. Ya know…doing concerts. And, every now and then, I’ll make a record to document the songs. Happy to be here in Texas right now…snowy Texas. I never thought I’d put those two words together!
