About 6 years ago I met, and became friends with a chap named Cameron Walker. Born and raised in South Carolina, married to his darling bride Anna, and father of 3 adorable children. His story is pretty amazing. I’ll let him share that with his listeners on his time. But at least know that God has brought him a long way. His days in college were not his brightest. All along his journey, he was being prepared and growing. The release of this album is part of that journey. Not only is it a phenomonel record (that I would implore you to go purchase here on itunes), but its given him freedom from insecurity he’s carried. Hope and strength have risen in him to put out songs personal to him without needing man’s approval. He’s creating his worship to his creator. The one who made Cameron to create.
Its so encouraging to be around people like Cameron who pursue their passions. Spend 5 minutes around him and you’ll see the passion and intensity in his eyes. The record is full of Hope, Grace, Redeption, Beauty, Faithfulness and Love. He collaborated on writing much of it with Michael Gungor and his team, and they did a brilliant job.
Below is his first blog on the beginning of this new journey. It really encouraged me. I hope it will you also. Be who you’re called to be, without walking in fear of man. You were made for me.
“And so the jouney begins.” - Cameron Walker
Friday, February 10th, 2012
And so the jouney begins. It’s a little scary honestly, and exposes many insecurities in me. It’s exciting to create. It is scary to share what you have created. We only a few clicks away from the best music, the best blogs, the best movies, the most glamorous, exciting, influential, beautiful people in the world. Twitter tells us where they partied last night and what they are having for breakfast this moning. Are you like me? Do you ever so subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) measure your life against the glossy presentations that the major networks and the world wide web are throwing up in our face? When offering something so personal as songs I have written, I find myself with an undercurrent of insecurities and questions that cause me to second guess. Who am I? What do I have to say? Why am I releasing songs? I don’t have a tour lined up. I don’t have a record deal. I don’t have a… and so if the jouney of a thousand miles begins with the first step, here it goes. I hope you like the music, but if you don’t, I hope you respect that I’m no longer letting the fear of people not liking what I create to keep me from creating. And I hope you’ll do the same.
