We’re close to releasing our second album Songs for the Journey Volume Two.

In this episode we chat about the different musicians making an appearance on this album, how it was recorded, the first album we ever purchased, and which tracks are our favourites.

We have included an acoustic version of Without You (Dead Sea Scrolls Cave 1), the first track from our new album—pre-orders are available now!

Get to Know The SHIYR Poets, Episode 3

Getting to Draft Zero

This is such a special episode because we talk about what it’s like to write as a group. A lot of people think song writing happens when inspiration strikes. The truth is, inspiration strikes when you make an appointment to song write.

We have included a special sneak peek at Psalm 20—you’re the first to hear it!

Also included in this episode:

  • Five different English translations of the Bible
  • Song writing via video chat
  • Defining JT

Get to Know The SHIYR Poets, Episode 2

The Journey

In this episode we unpack the structure of the Psalms and take you through orientation, disorientation, and reorientation and why it’s so different than any other song-writing project out there.

We have THREE acoustic tracks for you in this episode so make sure to listen to the end.

Get to Know The SHIYR Poets, Episode 1

Beginning the Journey

Earlier this summer we paused from recording our second album, Songs for the Journey Volume Two, and recorded some conversations to help you get to know us better.

This episode answers the questions:

  • Where did our band name come from?
  • How did the band get together?
  • Why the Psalms?

Listen to the end and enjoy a special unplugged version of Psalm 3!
