GOSPEL ... Contemporary Christian Music, a Gospel Message to win and/or encourage souls to God. Original Lyrics & Melodies by Marky Quayle written in the Recording Studio as Buddy Rasberry played Chord Changes on his keyboard & created arrangements
Loved to sing since a baby girl. The first two songs I learned, at age 2, were about the Bible "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. We are weak but He is Strong. Yes, Jesus Loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me: The Bible tells me so." and the love of Jesus for all people of all races. "jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world: red and yellow black and white, we're all precious in His Sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." At age 10 I sang my first solo for a large congregation of a thousand "We 3 Kings of Orient are, bearing Gifts. We've taversed afar. Field and Fountain, Moor and Mountain, following Yonder Star..." Then as my parents social life became more and more active, while they were out at evening parties and social events, I would stay home with the 3 younger brothers and our live-in housekeeper in the house, but I'd be alone in the living room listening to my Dad's 33 RPM vinyl record collection. I learned 75% of the repertoire I now have from The Great American Songbook probably by the time I was 9 years old. I'd play Nat King Cole, Rosmary Clooney, Peggy Lee, Julie London and my favorite Frank D'Rone ;) whom Dad took me to see in person several times when he'd come to San Francisco's premier Dinner Theater, Bimbo's 365 Club. Kids were allowed since dinner was served and Dad would always get a "ringside" seat! I was thrilled with this music as a youngster and sang professionaly in nightclubs, myself, for about 4 years once I hit age 20. But the culture wasn't supportive of my fav songs from Dad's era at that time, back in the Seventies. Also I rededicated my life to the Lord by becoming "born again" while visiting Atlanta, Georgia (3000 miles away from the City of my Birth, San Francisco) and working as a professional singer for the Axtel Williams Agency. The first song I wrote was right around the time of "rediscovering God in my life" it just poured out of me one day while walking across a Decatur Georgia Golf Course: "Wait Upon The Lord" ~ with words from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. The melody is a joyous one and since then I've written, intermittently, over the years more songs, some are pure scriptures put to my melodies and others are lyrics and melodies I've written. I love the OLD hymns of the Church and the OLD songs of the 1920's to the 1950's now known as Standards, thanks to the jazz musicians who rescued many of these great compositions from obscurity. I've recorded Old Hymns of the Church, but this cd is all original tunes and all original lyrics, though, of course, all insired by the Jewish Scriptures.
