Jacqueline Gordon "For now, while I bear fruit, I'll stretch out my roots deep into the earth." Dang. You just don't find that kind of stuff in most modern worship music. So powerful, please write more! Favorite track: First Sunrise of Spring.

Andrés Dávila Had the sheer joy of singing with Zack in the a cappella group from Texas State University. I remember one day exchanging poetry with him--unfleshed, not fully realized. If you can imagine being blown away then, then you have an idea of what it's like to see this artful manifestation of his heart's music now. Well done, Zack. Truly inspiring, healing, and brilliant. Love you, man. Favorite track: First Sunrise of Spring.

Special thanks to the fellas at Fire Station Studios for treating me like a king, to Tyler Heath for letting me borrow that beautiful mahogany Taylor, to Deering Banjos for trusting me to endorse their masterfully made instruments, and to my friends and family that continually inspire and encourage me by the way they make music, but especially by the way they live. This would not be possible without you people.

Track Name: First Sunrise of Spring
oh surprised bliss, what love is this my heart has found
from soil cracked and dry has sprung up life and for beauty I'm bound

for now, while I bear fruit, I'll stretch out my roots deep into the earth

so when my branches are broken and all my color fades
when brittle air bites me, snow's coming down sideways
when all that I long for is one sweet summer day
you'll be the first sunrise of spring that melts the ice away

I know what lies ahead but oddly dread does not fill me
I'll stretch my branches high and with glad sigh my soul will sing

for now, while I bear fruit, I'll stretch out my roots deep into the earth

so when my branches are broken and all my color fades
when brittle air bites me, snow's coming down sideways
when all that I long for is one sweet summer day
you'll be the first sunrise of spring that melts the ice away

when I feel like the summer days have left and gone away
you'll be the first sunrise of spring that turns the night to day
Track Name: More
go on and drown yourself
with the vice at the back of the shelf
you'll find it won't make you well
you'll gather what's sewn

go on and just talk down
and highlight the mistake you found
you'll find that you'll still be bound
by a flaw of your own

there's more, there's more
you might get what you want but your soul don't have what it's looking for
the sun's gonna rise, you'll open your eyes
so brush off your knees, get back up, take my hand, we're gonna run

we both know you're getting tired
of starting these temporary fires
keeping company with thieves and liars
who'll get what they're owed

and although the ground is scorched
you've used all the life you thought you could store
that's what the sunrise is for
your wrongs are not made of stone

there's more, there's more
yeah you got what you want, but your soul don't have what it's begging for
the sun's gonna rise, so open your eyes
brush off your knees, get back up, take my hand, we're gonna run

we're gonna run
