Product Notes

Perhaps God is my sophomore effort in the world of independent recording. New songs kept pouring into my head, so 18 months after the debut of For Such a Time as This, I found a producer and began the process of making record number two. To my great joy, Portland-area producer/engineer Dean Baskerville agreed to take the helm of this project, and we spent 14 days together, over an 8-month span, creating Perhaps God. When Dean and I met to begin pre-production, he commented on the 70s vibe that he noticed in much of my music. No one else had ever noted this element in my music, but once Dean pointed it out, I could see what he meant. About half of the songs on this CD highlight that sound-inspired by Carole King, the Beatles, and even Olivia Newton John. Track 7 ("Every Day") also features what my friends and students have called my "Norah Jones" song. Finally, hidden after the last track is a sample of one of my singing inspirations-my 90-year-old grandmother, Martha Roberts. Her soulful singing permeated the sanctuary of our church throughout my childhood and young adulthood, and I am so pleased to share her voice with the world. I get lots of questions about the title of the CD. These are the words I wrote for the liner notes: Perhaps God refers to a story in 1 Samuel. Saul's son Jonathan, finding himself greatly outnumbered during a war with the Philistines, says to his armor bearer: "Come let us cross over . . . perhaps the Lord will work for us, for the Lord is not restrained to save by many or by few." And his armor bearer replies: "Do all that is in your heart . . . here I am with you according to your desire" (NAS, 1 Sam. 14:6-7). This text is a favorite of mine, and it perfectly captures my family's faith-filled approach to life. I've never been very good at taking risks, but I am learning to embrace the pioneering spirit of my parents, Burt and Pat Roberts, and my grandparents, Evert and Martha Roberts and Paul and Naydeen Taylor. I want that adventurous vision of Grandma Naydeen, who faced storms head-on and relished the idea of new challenges. "What will God do?" she would ask, with joyful anticipation, when she found herself facing seemingly impossible circumstances.
